Luke Saunders launched Farmer’s Fridge in Chicago in October 2013 after pinpointing a need for healthy meals that were served on the go. Utilizing his background in manufacturing, Saunders developed a concept using state of the-
art software and machinery that would dispense and deliver fresh, wholesome food options in convenient locations.
Saunders was just named to Forbes Magazine's 30 under 30 list for 2016. In addition, Saunders and Farmer's Fridge have been featured on NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, The Atlantic, O Magazine, In Shape and Cooking Light.
Farmer's Fridge was also named USA Today’s “#1 Takeout in Chicago in 2015,” Time Out Chicago’s “Top Ten Salads in Chicago 2015,” and Thrillist’s “The Ultimate Lunch Loop Guide.”
Saunders started his first business as an undergraduate at Washington University in St. Louis. Upon graduation he helped run two family businesses on the East Coast, which is where he garnered his manufacturing experience. He chose Chicago for the location of Farmer's Fridge because it is a well known food town and a great place to do business.
Currently, Saunders lives in the West Loop with his wife, an attorney, who is also a food lover and dedicated travel partner.
