Paleo can be a daunting word when it comes to dieting, but Julie and Mike Fox are flipping the script. When Mike was diagnosed with Barrett's Esophagus in 2015, Julie started making all-natural, gluten- and grain-free snacks to help her husband heal.
Now thanks to hard work and a lot of support from Jordan Spieth and the U.S. Ryder Cup team, the Fox's launched Julie's Real, turning their homemade snacks into a national business. Co-Founders Julie and Mike Fox join Cheddar to discuss what it took to turn homemade snacks into a full-fledged business.
The company first sold its nut butters and granolas in local Dallas-area stores. Now Julie's Real is available in stores in 30 states and online. Mike Fox says he believes 2018 is going to be a big year for company expansion.
