Chris has been married for 15 years to Debbie Powers Cook. They share an adventurous partnership in life and enjoy parenting their sons, Graham and Carson (13 and 11, respectively). Their collective family passions revolve around food & basketball.

For the last two decades, Chris has been providing food to school districts nationwide as a proprietor and manager of three different school food businesses. He currently serves as our Vice President. In the last 16 years, he has overseen the development of over twenty private label product lines. He is responsible for creating the Smart Foods Theme Day Chicken Nugget products, which have fed 55 million children since the late 1990’s.

Last year, at his sons’ local elementary school, Chris volunteered in the classroom and conducted several fun and educational food workshops with all the 3rd and 4th grade students to help encourage healthier food choices in his community. His youngest son, Carson, insisted his friends needed a better understanding of what they need to eat to stay healthy. In recent years, Chris has conducted a successful series of food-related disease prevention seminars in support of school food service programs across the United States.
