Founder & CEO, Farmer’s Fridge
Luke Saunders is the founder and CEO of Farmer’s Fridge, a rapidly growing network of 180+ automated smart Fridges stocked with chef-curated, restaurant-quality salads, sandwiches, bowls and snacks. A
n entrepreneur at heart, Luke ran his first business, Bears’ Bikes, as an undergraduate at Washington University in St. Louis while majoring in International Studies. Shortly after graduating, Luke headed to New York to run a small family business focused on manufacturing specialty industrial lubricants. He later relocated to Michigan while his wife attended law school and took a role as a traveling salesman.
Regularly challenged by finding fresh food on the road, Luke arrived at the concept for Farmer’s Fridge: good health starts with what we eat and eating well shouldn’t be hard. Drawing on his entrepreneurial experience, Luke set out to build a disruptive yet simple way to make fresh, healthy food as accessible as a candy bar.
