Rich Relyea Mario - Director of Operations - Jack of all traits
It's-a me, Richard Mario. I like Princesses, Stars, Mushrooms, Sports, Kart Racing and Plumbing. I hate Koopa Troopas, Red Shells, Bowser, Fireballs and Mad Pianos. My brothers Mario Mario and Luigi Mario get all the fame... video games, movies made about them and I am stuck making delicious snacks and Directing the Operations of these food companies. Oh no! No, no, nooooo....

Kat Gilliam - Director of Marketing and Operations Manager - Jill of all traits
Kat, like the rest of the team is a seasoned vet of the Restaurant & Hospitality industry. The only one on the team skilled & patient enough to manage Social Media she is the glue that holds the team together and keeps us connected with you.
In her spare time she fights crime under the pseudonym Killer Kat. Don't ask any questions about it for your own safety.

Our Stuff...

All food companies say they have a unique product but a lot of them are full of garbage. Double meaning...did I have to point it out? When we say we are unique we are talking about UNIQUE! Root Beer Habanero was our 1st flavor ever and still our best seller. What about Tikka Masala??? What's Tikka Masala you ask? Look it up damn it, it's delicious. Will you find Beef Tikka Masala anywhere? NO! Well I made it and it's stupid good. That's right, so good it will actually make you stupid. Citrus Chili Cashews, we make them. Zesty, spicy and other mouth-watering descriptive words that will make you want to buy them. In fact pretend this whole sentence is something really eloquent and just makes you hungry for our goodies. What else, what else....Alligator we smoke it,...No you weirdo, we flavor it and put it in the smoker to cook for you to eat. Although....If I smoked Alligator...neverminded. Buffalo, Elk, Venison, Smoked Steak Strips, Jerky, Sweet Stuff, Spicy Stuff, even some plain classic stuff. Don't forget to check out all of our other brands on the tabs at the top of the page, put it all in one cart and one order!

Any and all claims are made in the attempt of comedy. If you actually get stupider from any of our products please seek immediate medical attention.
