“I wanted to close the gap between who I was and what I did.”
Jennifer Peters is the Founder & Foodie of Just BE Kitchen, a two-unit fast casual concept in Colorado, with an allergen friendly menu focused on serving “mindful mouthfuls from a conscious kitchen” through meals that are gluten, grain, refined sugar, and dairy-free.
As you’ll hear in our conversation, Jen’s mettle was tested several times along the way to opening and sustaining Just BE, from having her funding fall through right before she opened, to her Head Chef leaving to film a TV show two weeks before opening day.
We discuss how she overcame these challenges, as well as:
- How the idea started from an MBA class project
- Signing 56 letters of intent before finalizing her first location lease
- Why growing your business only unveils new challenges to overcome
- How owning a business is the “most expensive and fastest self development course”
Please enjoy my conversation with Jennifer Peters!
