Food,

Tell us about your business.

The recession inspired us to strike out and create our own future. With patience, perseverance, and a little luck we created our company - Ooma Tesoro’s. We love entertaining. Our kitchen is always at the center of the action. Many over the years had suggested we jar our Marinara sauce. The truth is: it wasn’t our sauce, but Ooma Tesoro’s - Michael’s grandmother, who taught Michael everything about her passion for cooking. We introduced Ooma Tesoro’s sauce at farmers' markets in 2009, and sold out. We knew we were on to something. Michael still makes every batch from the finest American-grown ingredients nothing artificial and no sugar added. Our mason jar harkens back to a time passed, but not lost. We have had requests to make other sauces, but we want to pour all our energy and passion into making the world’s greatest marinara sauce right now. Our next products will also be from scratch and maintain the excellence we have built from our first product.

What's the best business advice you've received?

Just keep at it and don't grow too fast.
