In This Episode
During tonight’s show we were joined by Andrew Rainey, owner of Randy’s Pickles (https://randyspickles.com) which is a Cleveland-based manufacturer of gourmet pickles. Andrew shared several stories from starting the business in his grandmother’s kitchen in North Ridgeville to his appearance as a contestant on the LeBron James show Cleveland Hustles (https://randyspickles.com/pages/press).
In addition, Andrew also talked about some of his keys to growing the business which started with just getting out there and talking to people to sell their product and do whatever it took to deliver the goods. He also shared some Dirty Secrets about how they became the bank for some of their distributors.
He is also a graduate of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Program (https://www.goldmansachs.com/citizenship/10000-small-businesses/US/) and he shared with us some of his key takeaways from that program in our monthly Goldman 10 for 10 segment. One of his key takeaways was the comradery of being with other like minded business owners as well as the networking opportunities that have helped get Randy’s Pickles to where they are today.
