OUR Team

"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much." Hellen Keller

Her words ring loud and clear.  When I first started making Lola Granola Bar in my kitchen, I would wake at 5am, cut the bars, then wake the kids for school.  My mom could come by 9am and help bag. Then, when I got the  kids off the bus, they would help seal and label.  As we grew, my team has evolved, but I could not have accomplished all of this without all our employees, family, friends, and neighbors.  Thank you all.
