Laura's Kitchen Table
We're mixing it up a bit today with an little interview style blog :) I figured I could try to explain Laura's mission, or I could have her use her own words and tell us everything! I loved meeting this whole crew and getting the chance to check out a locally owned subscription box company! They can be found at:
Can you tell us a bit about yourself? I’m a work-at-home mom of two girls, ages 6 and 4. I’ve been married for 11 years to my high school prom date. When I’m not working my business or doing all the mom stuff, I like to enjoy a nice glass of wine cuddled up on the couch in sweats. I’m obsessed with Netflix comedy specials, documentaries and the Food Network is on our TV 75% of the time. I always thought I was going to be a teacher growing up and I even hold a Masters degree in education, but once I became my own boss in the direct sales industry, I caught the entrepreneur bug and learned that being my own boss is the best!
What motivated you to start this company? After doing some soul searching and really thinking how I wanted my life to look like and what I was really passionate about, I knew my path was to do something related to food and female entrepreneurs. I actually bought my domain name in Spring 2019 before deciding what exactly I was going to do. By fate, I stumbled upon an online post about subscription boxes in winter 2019 and that was it! It’s more than just getting a box of food in the mail. It’s providing subscribers a way to treat themselves to amazing products; a reason to get together with friends and family. It’s also about being an advocate for female entrepreneurs working hard to share their small business with the world.
How did you pick the business featured in the boxes? I look for a few things as I’m deciding what items will be included in the boxes. First, of course it has to be female-owned and I really look at products that are not readily available in your big-box stores. Next, I look at the actual product - what it is, the name, if it’ll fit the theme of an upcoming box... and I taste them all! It’s a hard job, but someone has to do it. Finally, I learn how the company began and more about the founder. The stories behind these amazing female entrepreneurs is so inspiring. They’re following their passions. They’re giving back through charitable avenues. They’re solving food issues. Honestly, learning how and why they started is one of my favorite parts when looking at new items.
What products are you most excited about? All of them! These are high-quality, small batch products that taste like your mom, sister or girlfriend made them just for you. I’m excited for subscribers to taste them and I’m also excited to be an advocate for these female entrepreneurs.
What types of items will we see in your boxes in the coming months? There will be a lot of variety in the boxes! We have some awesome themes, but also we’ll have some boxes that have a mix and match theme of some items that we just love and want to highlight. I have big ideas and dreams for Laura’s Kitchen Table so I hope you join us for all the food, fun and female empowerment!
