An Insider's view of Splendid Spoon

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The Splendid Spoon office vibe is a great balance of work and play. Our team is always focused on building the great company that we work for, but doesn't forget to keep the atmosphere fun and light hearted. We value our relationships with each other by prioritizing lunch, yoga, and other group activities.

We are a small team and value open communication and regular check-ins as tools for collaborating on larger projects. Regardless of our individual roles and functions, everyone is a part of the larger Splendid team and works closely to achieve our broader goals.


Customer Experience Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

I was hired 4.5 years ago to help with administrative tasks and samplings at events. As we grew I wore many hats - soup chef, customer support agent, operations director, and product developer. With each position I was encouraged to take risks & was fully supported when things went well and when they didn’t. Today I focus 100% on our food product.


Director of Product

What is your vision for the company?

I created Splendid Spoon for anyone who was sick of fad diets and ready to improve their relationship with food. My hope is that our ready-to-eat, plant-based meal plans will help people reconnect to the power of good food, and my vision for the company is to create a collaborative space that values wellness, transparency, and growth.
