What the company’s officials have to add
Jen Zeszut, Co-Founder and CEO of GOODLES said, “We can’t outspend our deep-pocketed, big-brand competition. We have to be more authentic and more unexpected and go places they simply cannot. We are excited about this partnership with L Catterton – the best of the best when it comes to scaling consumer brands. The influx of capital to keep up with demand, coupled with the ability of our extraordinarily creative and results-oriented team to produce unconventional and joyful executions, positions us perfectly for continued success. We’re here to achieve legendary business results by creating a legendary product and brand, and we are growing faster and more efficiently than many of our food and beverage counterparts because of it. It’s a testament to the power of weird!”
In addition, Gal Gadot, Founding Partner of GOODLES, said, “The growth we’ve experienced is a testament to our loyal fans and consumers. I would never have imagined that my favourite meal as a child – mac and cheese – would become a business venture of my own. I am grateful that I can contribute to bringing joy to people’s dining room tables.”
