SHARE GOOD FOODS started in the back of a coffee house in 2010. Lunchtime fare at the coffee house was languishing for lack of good food so we took it as a challenge to create better options, which incidentally we packaged for easy handling, preparation, and sale. Within a couple years, given the demand and interest from other local businesses, we launched Share Good Foods to serve the community. We like to say we created a scratch kitchen and artisan bakery experience for the grab-and-go marketplace.

Today we operate from an FDA facility in Englewood where our staff make baked goods, sandwiches, salads, oatmeal, and snacks for numerous outlets in the area and region each day. Our outlets focus on building profitability and community in their business while Share Good Foods focuses on being their food expert providing wholesome foods.
