Today on Business Rockstars, Ken Rutkowski talks with Todd DeMann, the founder and CEO of Freshology, a food delivery service, whose meals are designed for the purpose of weight loss and healthy living. Fans of Freshology include Sofia Vergara, Hilary Duff, Mario Lopez, Vanessa Williams, and Sarah Michelle Gellar.
As one of the leading managers and entrepreneurs in Southern California’s competitive hospitality and lifestyle sectors, Todd DeMann‘s passion for innovation and excellence has been the guiding spirit behind both Freshology and his several prior successful endeavors.
Todd DeMann founded Freshology in 2005, based on the firm conviction that healthy nutrition and top-level cuisine were not mutually exclusive, but in fact were natural partners. Recognizing the rapid growth of the organic food movement over the last several years and combining that inspiration with the results-oriented management and client service skills honed over years of entrepreneurial experience, DeMann quickly grew Freshology to a hundred-million dollar business within five years, establishing it as the premier food delivery service in Southern California. As the organization’s CEO, Todd oversees all aspects of the company’s work, from menu creation, to staffing, to forging innovative partnerships with sister companies to expand the scope and quality of Freshology’s offerings. His more than twenty years of experience in finance, hospitality and real estate serve as a poignant counterpoint to the youthful energy and enthusiasm that Newsweek magazine saw in 1986, spotlighting him among its “New Crop of Young Entrepreneurs,” and which continues to animate every aspect of his work. He is presently a member of the Board of Director of the non-profit Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.
