Casey Kathryn Kehoe- Chief Executive Officer and Founder
Casey blends together her years of experience as a competitive athlete with her passion for fitness, baking and healthy-living. The creation of Casey's Krunch came quite organically after Casey was diagnosed with a severe gluten allergy in 2011 while living in Chicago. In order to have a healthy, gluten-free snack, Casey began baking at home some of her favorite traditional baked-goods but in a gluten free version. The one staple product that she found was her preferred snack was granola. She would bake it in large quantities then portion it out into little Ziplock bags to stash in her gym back, keep at her desk at work or even carry around to the sports bar on the weekends. Casey soon realized and discovered there was a gap in the market for small portioned sized gluten-free granola and therefore started Casey's Krunch- to offer a gluten-free, grab-n-go sized package of granola for the busy, health-conscious consumer.
Casey wears a number of hats and is responsible for the product development, daily operations in the kitchen, and marketing/branding. She is also still very hands on in the kitchen with the three Baking Assistants. Together with her co-founder and husband Tom, Casey regularly attends trade shows and other industry related events. As the CEO and Founder, it is hard not to have your hands in a little bit of everything!
