The story of T-swirl Crepe starts thousands of miles away on the shores of Japan. The Japanese Crepe borrows from a western concept and modernized it into new level of versatility that you can gobble on the go. Building on this new concept, T-swirl started to research and have perfected the 100% gluten free rice flour batter, to craft a crispy thin chewy layer that embraces all the decadent condiments. T-swirl is synonymous with using the finest ingredients to construct a trendy/artistic crepe that arrives to your hand with incredible speed. We have standardized the process to give you a consistently clean and delicious crepe. T-swirl is the only destination to satisfy your crepe cravings. As you crack open the door, the initial whiff is enchanting. The air perfumes with aroma of fresh fruits and savory bacon as you walk closer to the counter. Once there, you are greeted with an inviting smile; letting you know that you are about to embark on a mouth-watering adventure. We have sweet and savory crepes that can satisfy your taste buds. Co-founder Jerry Lin joins Justin to discuss this delicious brand!

At Good Food for Good, their products are certified organic and free of refined sugar, soy, corn syrup, gluten, dairy, or preservatives. Basically, if you wouldn’t add it when cooking from scratch, you won’t find it in their products. Unlike most store-bought sauces you can find, they don’t believe in relying on sugar and artificial additives for flavor. All of their organic sauces are Keto, Paleo, Vegan, and Whole30 Approved, because putting your health first should not have to mean sticking to bland, sauce-less meals. Founder and President Richa Gupta joins Justin to discuss this fast-growing food brand.

From a small kitchen in Asheville, NC, two mothers with a purpose and passion for fermentation began making kombucha as a healthy alternative for their kids. From gifting jars to friends, families, neighbors and eventually selling through farmers markets—their shelves and countertops were quickly overflowing with kombucha. So they took a big leap—a leap that sparks fear, curiosity and can alter a person’s life forever. Buchi took their small-batch home production to a warehouse on a 180-acre farm in the mountains of Southern Appalachia. Unwaveringly dedicated to their mission, the whole team decided this wouldn’t just be their office, but their home. Brewing together, working together, living together, and taking on every hardship together. In 2016, Buchi opened the first commercial kombucha brewery in the Southeast. Buchi’s purpose is to craft delicious, high-quality, nutrient-dense living drinks; invest in the regeneration of our planet; and use business as a conduit for positive social impact. Zane Adams joins Justin to discuss this fast-growing brand.

Designer Dram began when one of the founders set about to create his own whiskey. He quickly discovered that the only way he could do this was by going through the process of creating an entire barrel of whiskey. As exciting as this was, this process takes a minimum of two years and costs upwards of $5,000 if aged well. Now each of us can create our own via Designer Dram. Co-founder Chintan Dhanji joins Justin to discuss this unique alcoholic-beverage experience brand!
