Chef David Francis
Research & Development
Flavor mastermind, Dave's sauces are what started it all. David has a lot of experience with food and has always had a great passion for flavor and uniqueness. Full of fun and imagination; Dave's ideas are authentic, researched, yet modern and fresh. Señor Francis is always on the lookout for new ideas for food and business, driving the products you love. He loves Bourbon, cinema, smoking meats (and sometimes cigars), and spending time with his girlfriend Nicole and 2 cats.
Chef Andres "Dre" Sandoval
The other flavor wizard of the team, Dre, creates condiments and ideas alongside David, and provides a backboard for new inspirations. Product, website, and art design; company planning, logistics, media, and production are some of the many hats this man wears!
He loves his team, the thrill of entrepreneurship, and bringing great products to you! In his spare time, Dre loves video games, ganja, reading fantasy, playing guitar, and spending time with Katie and their 3 cats.
The Market Lady
She's the Market Lady and all around badass. Wife to Chef Dre, she's been there since the beginning, when Hunger was just an alcohol fueled conversation. She makes sure all the production gets done and ready for our loyal consumers. State and local paperwork, event planning, running the markets, growing relationships, and handling online orders, Katie does a lot! She gets the sauce to you! She loves watching shows, video games, pasta, and hanging out with Dre and troop 1142, the cats.
Dee is a long time friend and huge supporter of the brand. She was formerly an established Sales and Education Representative for a local Wine Distributer for 17 years, and has recently taken the leap to join us on our mission! Dee will help propel Hunger into its next phase with true salesmanship both behind the tent and on the road. She jams on sipping wine, good tunes and concerts, dancing, games and her awesome fiancé John, and super cool daughter Kayleigh who is nine, and has the best pallet for her age! They also have 2 kitties.
