Ali Bonar, CEO and co-founder of Kween Granola Butter, joins me on today’s episode of Unstoppable.
As the co-founder of the first-ever spreadable granola, Ali came across this marvelous idea when nut-butters were difficult for her to digest. With her Nutrition degree from UC Berkeley, she was determined to make a hardy “butter” that was more nutritious than cookie butter.
Ali joined forces with her boyfriend to start Kween. The entrepreneurial duo’s “Granola Butter” has now been featured in publications like Business Insider, Rachel Ray Every Day, and Bon Appetit.
On today’s show, Ali and I talk about how she decided to invent Granola Butter, what it is like working with her boyfriend, the lessons she’s learned so far as an entrepreneur, and much more.
