New Grounds Food was co-founded by Johnny Fayad and Ali Kothari in April of 2013. When 40-hour workweeks, college, and sleepless nights left these co-founders battling with morning classes, they set out to solve the problem. Johnny and Ali had a mutual frustration with running late to their 8:00 AM Financial Accounting class, and wanted a faster and simpler way to get their breakfast and coffee in the morning without compromising nutrition. With this problem they faced, they created the CoffeeBar: an all natural, vegan, and gluten-free energy bar that is infused with an entire cup of fair-trade coffee. Made of simple ingredients you would find in a pantry, the CoffeeBar is a delicious, healthy option to getting your day started and keeping it going. The CoffeeBar is New Grounds Food’s first product to help fulfill their mission: “to provide the people of the world with a healthier way to stay energized throughout their day.”
