Interview with Andrew Gucci, CEO of Evori Brands

At New York based EVORI Brands their passion for food is religion. And there are many gods that they pray to: Salty, Sweet, Savory, Spicy. And at the core of every tasty bite? Special. We talked with Andrew Gucci, CEO at Evori Brands

Andrew, The story behind EVORI Brands is impressive, how did it all start?

The roots of EVORI Brands can be traced back to a tabletop fryer discovered in my grandparents basement. Experimentations and failures with that fryer sparked a newfound passion for all things food, and we began by creating frozen appetizer products that were sold at NHL events and to restaurants. Since then, we have evolved into a full-fledged food and beverage service provider. Our goal is to be renowned for introducing exceptional products into the market. One of my inspirations shared a piece of advice that has been instrumental in driving us forward: to follow your passion and never give up.
