The Story of a Brand

Oct 28, 2022

This episode is brought to you by Sendlane.


Ronda says, “So Romesco originated in the 15th century in northern Spain. So it has been around for a very long time. There's no one particular recipe for Romesco, much like Mexico has a variety of salsas. We make our Romesco with California almonds, roasted red pepper, garlic, tomato, spices, olive oil and a little red wine vinegar. It is an all natural, low carb, gluten-free product. It's vegan, vegetarian as well.”


Today we interview Ronda Catherine Brittian, Co-founder of Ronda’s Fine Foods. Ronda’s Fine Foods is a Petaluma, CA based woman and minority-owned family business, focused on creating unique, small batch, gourmet food items to inspire the discerning home chef.


Besides discussing products, we do a thorough analysis of her story. From going back to school, later in life, to become a neuro trauma nurse. To losing her mother, father and grandfather at the same time her marriage was ending. She struggled to support 3 children but learned some valuable lessons which she shares in this episode.


We discuss:


* Her gratefulness for her family and her partner, Steve
* Being in your 50s and not wanting to live in regret
* Being okay with failure
* Losing her father, mother, grandfather and marriage - Her origin story
* Starting over as a single mother
* Why you never win the war by running away from the battle
* A review of her award-winning Romesco, including ingredients
