Molly O'Meara: "Nothing says community like ride sharing and audio book listening on the way to a food show. Cynthia and I helped each other with business strategy and encouragement as we prepared for our first Michigan Grocers Association Show this year on Mackinac.


With Cynthia I share my amazing sense of direction, impeccable driving abilities and my incessant need to break complicated tasks into smaller manageable pieces.

It's very likely that without FoodLab I would never have met Cynthia, and I definitely would not had the opportunity to take a 4 hour car trip and ferry boat ride with her. The trip changed from a stressful burden that I was needlessly worried about, to an unforgettable journey with loads of laughter, learning and maybe a few glasses of wine."

Cynthia Davis: "From the moment I met Molly she did not hesitate to offer her helpful  experiences and advice on what I could expect from my first Trade Show on Mackinac Island. As Molly and I traveled to Mackinac we brain stormed different strategies as to how we can work our businesses more effectively and efficiently with laughter while looking for police traps.

While in Mackinaw, I shared with Molly my ability to balance many bags (that could have been checked for the ferry) and a water jug for hours. No, seriously, I am easy to work with.

FoodLab has created the opportunity for me to meet amazing people like Molly and many more.  Without FoodLab, my journey in business would be a lot harder. Being a part of this community is hands down one of the best business decisions I could have ever made."
