Quevos Founders and Story
Zack Scheier was always on the lookout for an ideal low carb snack. As a teenager, Zack was diagnosed with diabetes and he knew that having a bag of chips meant an insulin shot. His go-to snack was often egg white omelettes. He loved the crispy bits of egg white which would then be left behind on the pan. He knew that if that piece of protein could crunch so well it could act as a good chip replacement. He gave this a thought and ropes in his best friend Nick Hamburger. Nick was a collegiate tennis player who would never be caught sans a protein bar.
They experimented with flavour for two years to come up with the perfect blend of crunch and bold chips which would deliver the necessary nutrition but also didn’t affect Zack’s sugar level. Zack and Nick were lucky to find a mentor in their neighbour, the co-founder of Skinny Pop that was part of a Hersey billion-dollar acquisition.He was one of the first taste testers but above that it was his valuable insight which made their step into the snack market effectual and productive.
They then rented a test kitchen to see how the equipment given would result in producing chips at a large scale. Once they were certain they moved to a larger production space. Zack and Nick joined the New Venture Challenge (NVC) at the University of Chicago, a 10-week course that spoke about everything they needed to know to start a business.
