Orlando-Based Mom-Owned Company "Wholesome Tummies" Featured In Entrepreneur Magazine

Locally-owned company “Wholesome Tummies” and its founders, Debbie Blacher and Samantha Gotlib, are featured in the latest Entrepreneur magazine, a top source for small business news in the U.S.

Orlando, FL (PRWEB) June 13, 2012 - Locally-owned company “Wholesome Tummies” and its founders, Debbie Blacher and Samantha Gotlib, are featured in the latest Entrepreneur magazine, a top source for small business news in the U.S.

The story, “Look Out Lunch Ladies, Here Comes Wholesome Tummies”, focuses on a key concern of American families: providing nutritious meals to schoolchildren. Their story about creating a successful franchise model to address school lunches is featured in the May 2012 issue and was just released in the online edition.

“The obesity epidemic in this country is staggering,” says co-founder Blacher, “and it’s time we, as parents, seize control of this national health issue. When Samantha and I first began addressing the issue of healthier school lunches, we were trailblazers. Now, healthier eating is the lead story on network news and even has First Lady Michelle Obama as a vocal advocate.”

The creative and business team behind “Wholesome Tummies”, Debbie Blacher and Samantha Gotlib, have fulfilled a niche in the relatively untapped market of providing healthful school lunches to private schools.

Blacher, a mother of three and a corporate HR professional, and Gotlib, a mother of four and a self-described “serial entrepreneur”, created “Wholesome Tummies” to address this need in 2007.

“We knew that many private schools contract with fast-food companies to serve lunch. Our franchise model provides an alternative that balances nutrition, taste and cost, in addition to giving local leaders a solution to fight childhood obesity in their own backyards,” says Blacher.

Today, seven “Wholesome Tummies” franchisees provide thousands of healthy meals to children in private schools in four states. The company plans to expand into more markets this year. Amber and Mark Taylor have just taken over the Orlando-based franchise.

To combat the country’s growing obesity problem, “Wholesome Tummies” uses only fresh and all-natural ingredients to create kid-tested, nutritionist-approved menus that are made from scratch each day. The program goal is to empower children to make healthy food choices and develop early eating patterns that lead to lifelong good health.
