Fruitbelt Sparkling Fruit Tonic
Sparkling Fruit Tonic
Michele Gazzolo & Beth Denton, Founders
With a dedication to sourcing fruit from southwest Michigan orchards, friends and founders Michele Gazzolo and Beth Denton created Fruitbelt. Originally, the goal was to find a way to use the harvest from the orchards beyond making jams and pies. With Fruitbelt, they did exactly that. They craft sparkling fruit drinks for Michigan communities and beyond.
Kalamazoo Candle Company
Adam McFarlin, Founder
Creating Kalamazoo Candle was a happy accident, according to owner and founder Adam McFarlin. Needing a little extra cash over the holiday season, he researched a list of ideas — and found candle making. He decided to start by using soy wax and paper wicks. Since 2013, the rest is Kalamazoo Candle Company history.
John Roos, Founder
True to its Ann Arbor, Michigan, roots, RoosRoast founder John Roos is a self-described ski bum, poet, artist, consultant chef and car salesman turned coffee connoisseur. In 2005, he decided to put down some of his hobbies for a while to open RoosRoast — but art was not one he left behind: John handprints his own coffee bags.
James Atto, Founder
Located in Detroit, RŌSTED’s crunchy lentils are all about simple ingredients: lentils, olive oil and spices. Founder and CEO James Atto and his company have brought over 35,000 bags of their Crunchy Lentils to customers across the U.S. — all since 2015. A deliciously satisfying snack, RŌSTED’s lentils are ready-to-eat right out of the bag.

Loving our local growers, artisans, makers, entrepreneurs and producers is something that just comes, well, naturally. After all, our local community has been one of our most important ingredients — it's been that way since the doors opened to our very first store.
