Ryan Geni and Kevin Carta founded Frozen Coconut. Ryan, a vegan, developed a frozen coconut dessert good for diabetics and those with lactose intolerance. It started as a treat for his mother, and then he shared it with his friends. Everyone agreed, you couldn't tell it was good for you and it tasted great!
Meanwhile, Kevin was planning to start up a health oriented food company that was organic, unique, and good for you. He was leaning towards gluten free pasta when Ryan approached him with the dessert. After some convincing, they started selling it at the local farmers' market, and the rest, as they say, is history.
The pair headed off to New York City and graduated with Honors from Ice Cream University. http://icecreamuniversity.org/ (Malcolm Stogo). Frozen Coconut went from being sold at a small Saturday market to having six flavors in two sizes, and was picked up by a national retail chain. When they aren't handing out Frozen Coconut at events, they are travelling the country, convincing others to try their product.
