Food is an essential part of our everyday lives, but sometimes we have to make adjustments to our routine, like many other things in life. While food can be a simple journey, it can also be a complex one as well. Throughout our lives, we may find that we need to adjust our diets for health conditions and even allergies. The latter was the main reason why Brian Rudolph, co-founder of the food brand Banza, decided to dive deeper into the food industry, separating himself by bringing consumers some of their favorite entrées made with chickpeas. The entrepreneur spoke with ONE37pm’s Phil Toronto about his career path on this week’s Open Dialogue.
There is always more to the process of developing a business than meets the eye, and for Rudolph, Banza is the culmination of drive and hard work. Understanding that food needs can vary from person to person, Rudolph set out to utilize a legume that doesn’t regularly cross most people’s minds: the chickpea.
