In 2012, Andrew Laurent found himself near death and with limited mobility. He had just suffered a stroke and was beginning to understand the full impact of his diet and nutrition on his condition. As a newly disabled stay-at-home dad, Andrew knew he needed to make a change. He started his own plant-based and vegan journey and soon after launched his vegan business, Broth Bomb, to support his family and help others reduce their food waste and eat more plant-based meals.
In this episode, Andrew shares how he pivoted his restaurant delivery business after his stroke to begin building Broth Bomb. The idea for Broth Bomb came while Andrew was looking for a fun way to share his favorite easy wholesome one-pot recipes with friends and family. Including the seasonings led to the idea. Using advanced sales directly through Broth Bomb’s website, Andrew generated the cash flow required to manufacture their products and launch the business without financing. The business has already sold over 150,000 units!
Listen to this episode to hear all about how Andrew used the changes he was making in his personal life to overcome a physical disability as a catalyst for this new vegan venture.
