We are happy to have a great episode for you today with Roland and Andy Mackensen, of Snack Nation.
Andy’s 4-year-old company hit #24 on the Inc, 500 Fastest companies list in 2018. They are currently meeting a need with healthy snack delivery for around 6000 offices. But what they really do, is discover the newest healthy snacks and curate the best of them. In turn, they provide value on multiple fronts by also collecting data from their customers for the suppliers.
In today’s episode, Roland consults with Andy on how to 10X this thriving business. We get to be a fly on the wall as they consider some options and angles. Listen if you have a business that you are trying to scale and need some smart strategies. For more on this – and some context – check out episode 77 where Roland breaks down the strategy ‘How To Take Your 1 Million Dollar Business To 10 Million’.
“We realized this pivot could help us accomplish our mission faster, and in a much better way. The entire thing made more sense.” Andy Mackensen
