All successful businesses have one thing in common - they solve an important problem. As for Garden Kettle, founders Joe and Stacey Rzonsa saw the problem from the other side of the counter. As busy professionals and parents who are always on the go, the Rzonsas struggled to find truly fresh and fulfilling meals fast, always settling for a fast option that made them feel guilty when they were finished.
''If you have a decent meal that you pick up from a window, you trick yourself into being happy about it,'' Stacey said. ''We don't realize how much we're settling until we feel guilty after eating it or feeding it to our loved ones.'' But Joe and Stacey didn't want to settle. That's when the idea of Garden Kettle came to life.
