This makes Enjoy Life Foods the 2 nd fastest growing, privately owned food company in the Chicagoland area.
“I credit Enjoy Life Foods’ continued success to an extremely energetic team of employees who are highly sensitive to the growing needs of more than 45 million Americans who have food allergies, intolerances, Celiac Disease or Autism,” said Scott Mandell, President, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Enjoy Life Foods. “Where others have tried, we have succeeded in developing products that serve as safe and delicious alternatives for our very special consumers,” he added.
Enjoy Life Foods has become a leading gluten free and allergy-friendly food company, offering consumers 26 allergy-friendly and gluten-free products. Over 5000 stores throughout North American carry Enjoy Life products and the company continues to be recognized as one of the world’s most innovative companies developing pre-packaged foods for the growing population of people who live with food intolerances. This past year, Enjoy Life Foods teamed with Fair Winds Press to develop an allergy-friendly cookie cookbook, Cookies for Everyone!. A companion title, Cupcakes for Everyone! will be available at all major bookstores including Barnes & Noble, Borders and Amazon in January of 2010.
“We are humbled by our growing popularity,” furthers Mandell. “We know that our phenomenal growth has only occurred due to the fact that we have fantastic, loyal customers. They not only enjoy our products, but they help spread the Enjoy Life philosophy of great tasting foods for everyone to other people within their support communities. Without our customer support, we would not have had the success we enjoy today.
Enjoy Life’s growth is expected to continue with new product introductions coming in the first half of 2010. In addition, new and improved formulations will be introduced to existing products, an indication that the company never looks to sit on its laurels and is always seeking to remain the best gluten free, allergy friendly food company in North America.
