Biography:

Jon started Kodiak Cakes in 1994 based on his Mother’s suggestion of creating a whole-grain food mix company.

In 1995, Jon’s brother, Joel, came on board and helped sell Kodiak Cakes in resort towns and gift stores. In 1997, when Jon decided to go back to the University of Utah for an MBA, he turned the tiny company over to his brother Joel who has developed it into a nationally recognized brand. Jon spent the next two decades in healthcare leadership and consulting. He worked for the University of Utah Hospital, Stanford Hospital, Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) as well as three healthcare consulting firms.
