Food Business Success™ gives you everything you need to make your dream business profitable. It is the only program that combines one-on-one support with the resources, expertise and accountability you need to ensure your success.
You have been making something delicious in your home kitchen and everyone tells you to turn it into a business.
You just can't shake this dream. You think about it all the time.
What if you were the next Rx Bar, the next Nut Pods, the next Sir Kensington's, the next Justin's...
They all started somewhere. But it takes more than a great product to make it in the industry.
You also need an entrepreneurship mindset - the never give up, going to figure this out, going to make a plan, going to feel the fear and do it anyway attitude.
And most importantly, a true entrepreneur knows they can't go it alone. Finding expert help is how you get it done faster and easier.
✅ You have a great food or beverage product idea or are currently in farmers markets or on local store shelves
✅ You think you can do it on your own, but you suffer from frustration, exhaustion and stress trying to hustle it alone. This shouldn't be this hard...
✅ You've seen similar products make it big on store shelves and Amazon and wonder how you can get there.
✅ You want to focus on what you love doing, not what you have to do
✅ You're ready to invest in your business and product to get to the next level in the next six months.

My name is Sari Kimbell and I am a Consumer Packaged Food (CPG) Industry Expert.
My passion is helping people start and grow successful packaged food and beverage businesses.
In 2009 I took a position I had no qualifications for on an organic farm in Colorado to create a small wholesale program to sell our produce, meat and eggs to restaurants and independent stores. Over two years, I built the business to be a significant part of the farm's revenue. Our brand was featured on menus and in stores throughout Colorado and Wyoming and my passion for local food was born.
After three years, I left the farm for Whole Foods Market. First as a buyer, then as local vendor success manager for the region, and then as the Marketing Director for the third highest grossing store in the Rocky Mountain Region. I won awards for growing sales, but my personal mission was to help local producers who worked so hard to get ON the shelves, get OFF the shelves into customers' baskets. This is how a small food brand thrives.
That's me in the farm fields in 2010 for an article in the local paper. ➡️
In 2015, I left Whole Foods Market. I wasn't exactly sure what my next step was. I managed a commissary kitchen and met so many passionate entrepreneurs who just wanted to get their product made, but had no idea what they were getting into and how to actually be profitable.
After working with hundreds of food entrepreneurs just like you, I created Food Business Success to help you feel confident and capable in your business. I give you a process that saves you time and money so you can get to the business of starting their dream. What if you never had to worry if you were doing it "right" again?
The time is right for small producers. We need more products just like yours.
Let's turn your delicious passion into a profitable food business!

Just kicking the tires? I get it. You got to start somewhere.

When you are ready to stop just gathering information and are ready to go all in on your business, I'm here for you.
Everything you need to learn* to get your product to market legally and set up for success in a self-paced 6 month online program combined with private business strategy sessions to address the unique needs of your business.
The program gives you individual access to me for six months AND lifetime access to the courses and private community group to support you throughout the life of your business.

Have more money than time? Want it all done for you?
I work with clients individually too. Many who work or take care of their family full time, but just can't shake this dream to start a food business.
Whether you just have an idea and want to get it made into a real product or you are ready to scale up your hobby business to get on national grocery store shelves or online, I do it all (or know the right people who do).
