In a nutshell

How it all began...

In 2018, my youngest was heading to Prep. After seven (long-ish!) years of doing the stay-at-home-parenting thing, I was ready for something new.

Four months later, after weeks of scouring the positions vacant ads for the 'perfect' position, I came across a small lunchbox business for sale on Gumtree. Little did I know how new that something would actually be!

I drove away from the business handover meeting with every piece of stock in the back of my car, and absolutely no business, marketing or e-commerce experience. I was so excited, so motivated, so determined and so, so naïve! 🙃

What started as just me packing orders in the spare room of our house, has now turned into a team of five amazing women, working together from our Brisbane warehouse. I am beyond grateful for the journey that has brought me here this far, and am so excited for what's still to come.

I love that you've found us, and are here reading this. And I would LOVE to help give you that *nailed it!* lunchbox feeling! It's what we do best here 🙌
