R.J. and Lindsey Marvin will trace how they launched Barrel + Brine in Buffalo, outline what challenges and obstacles they faced along the way and indicate how their business is currently positioned, in a virtual founder’s lunch-hour talk hosted by the Fredonia Technology Incubator on Wednesday, March 31, from noon to 1 p.m.

“This is a terrific opportunity to hear from successful entrepreneurs in a food-related industry,” said incubator Director Chuck Cornell. “We are looking forward to them sharing their story with us.”

The husband-and-wife team opened the first location of Barrel + Brine as a culinary operation that specialized in pickled products and also made kombucha and kimchi in 2015. Three years later, the Marvins relocated their business to a StartUp NY program site on Chandler Street and added a café and taproom.

Barrel + Brine’s product line is also currently stocked at Wegmans, Whole Foods Market and smaller retail shops.

The talk is free to the public and guests are encouraged to register online at… This link can also be located on the incubator website and social media pages.
