Genevieve (Gen) Thompson, an Entrepreneur and Senior Executive in the restaurant, retail, and Natural Channel CPG Food and Beverage industry, brings over 20 years of demonstrated professional skills in corporate development, operations, sales, marketing, and management. She has led start-up and emerging food brands and a fast-casual restaurant in strategic planning and development with key objectives and growth strategies.
Gen’s passion for natural foods kick-started at a very young age, eating farm to table, and with rich Latin heritage from Spain and Mexico ~ the love for authentic food was destined.
Following the footsteps of her Bisabuelos, Gen began her entrepreneurship in the food industry when she founded and launched the Two Hot Mamas Salsa Co. brand in 2003. After Two Hot Mamas Salsa Co. garnered critical acclaim for her “Latin with A Twist” recipes and national distribution, Gen began her next project … Two Hot Mamas Grill in 2009.
Next on Gen’s agenda … PIK-NIK in 2023!
