It’s the holidays and I thought we should talk about fruit cakes, so I went on the hunt for local bakers that create them. I couldn’t find any. But along the way, I stumbled into another interesting story.
Back in the day, there was A&P. It was the first grocery chain in America and for about 40 years, it was the largest. A lot of factors played into it, but the company came to an end in 2015. Everything was put up for auction.
Brothers Alex and Chris Ronacher kept hearing how much people liked the Jane Parker fruit cakes and they found out no one had picked up the former A&P brand. They snapped it up and brought it to market, learning lots of things along the way.
Today they will share their story and, for listening in, you can get a 10 percent discount on your order by going to JaneParker.com and using the promo code hungry19.
Don’t say I never did anything for you.
