Finding Our Rhythm During Austin’s Hot Summer
September 11, 2015

Rhythm Superfoods kept busy this summer in Austin, Texas with a variety of events including yoga (LOTS of yoga), Bike Austin, music events, volunteering at a local food bank, and good ol’ back to school fairs.

Yoga On the Roof, Summer at the Springs, Bike Austin

If you live in Austin there’s a pretty good chance you participated in at least one of the healthy lifestyle events we attended under the hot Texas sun. Austin is known for being a fit community and what better way to make hungry post-workout consumers happy than to feed them kale chips. This summer we participated in Yoga On the Roof at Whole Foods Lamar throughout July, Summer at the Springs – a free yoga event by Wanderlust Yoga at Barton Springs on Monday nights, and Bike Austin’s Hottest Day of the Year Ride. We could win awards for the tan lines we’ve acquired along the way…

 

Welcome Campers Wild Honey Pie Austin Premiere Party

As one of the sponsors for The Wild Honey Pie Welcome Campers Music Series Season 3, we attended the Austin Premiere Party at The Parish in July. The night was full of music, fun people, and last but not least Rhythm Superfoods’ Kale Chips! Check out the music series here: http://www.thewildhoneypie.com.

 

Volunteering

Twice this summer Rhythm Superfoods employees volunteered at the Capital Area Food Bank Mobile Food Pantry. Lending a helping hand however we can is something we pride ourselves in. Want to get involved? Numerous volunteer opportunities await you: https://www.austinfoodbank.org.

 

Back to School

‘Tis that inevitable time of year. School is in session (or soon to be at least). Hopefully you had the chance to sample Rhythm Superfoods Kale Chips and Broccoli Bites at one of the many Whole Foods Back to School Vendor Fairs in August. We even attended Texas A&M’s Back to School Vendor Daze during the week students were moving in because our Kale Chips are now available at the campus stores!

 

We’re sad to see summer go, but excited for fall and winter events we have lined up. Be on the lookout for Rhythm Superfoods Field Marketing Team demoing in stores and at special events!

Follow us on Twitter and Instagram for the most up to date news!

Interview with Rhythm CEO Scott Jensen
May 7, 2015

WoT_template_SCOTT_Community_involvement

Rhythm CEO and Incubation Station/SKU board member Scott Jensen talks about kale, BBQ, and supporting the Austin community.

Rhythm strives to be a transparent company, to the point of having an actual window to the product on every bag of Kale Chips. How does that concept carry through from production to the marketplace?

We’re getting fresh kale from a farm, mixing it with all kinds of wonderful ingredients, dehydrating it, putting it into a bag, sending it to a store, and then standing in the store with a table and offering people samples to try what we’ve just made. It doesn’t get any more transparent than that.

How does thriving in the city of Austin affect what you do?

A big part of my early career in Austin was an iconic BBQ brand (Stubb’s) and an iconic live music venue/restaurant (Stubbs BBQ) which is where I started. It’s on the stage. There’s no hiding from it. You can’t hide what you’re doing with BBQ, you can’t hide what you’re doing with live music. You’re open to critique on a daily basis, because the public decides whether they like your product or not.

How does that window relate to what I do? Both of these things are incredibly open to view, for people to see everything we’re doing. We’re right out there: standing with people, hearing that they don’t like this flavor, or that they love that one, or this one has too many crumbs. Or, of course, “why don’t you make another flavor that’s a little like this?”

How do the ethos of transparency and the relationship to Austin carry over into Incubation Station/SKU?

We open up Incubation Station to all people, and 75% of those people are from the Austin area. We have public happy hours for any startup companies that want to come and rub elbows with angel investors and mentors. So, coming from the Rhythm area, where everything is out in the open and there to be seen – we’re still doing it the same way.

When I think about the integration of what I do for a living as the leader of Rhythm, as well as a leader of the Incubation Station/SKU…these are two very publically-faced companies. We are out in stores meeting with hundreds of consumers every week. If you’re working at a public utility, generating electricity, the only interaction you have with your customers is the bill that comes to the house. You could be in some huge office building where no one has to sit there and take the beating of answering to bad service. But, we are. We are selling directly, indirectly, and standing in front of people in the supermarkets in the town we live.

From the Farmacy: Rhythm Rx
March 2, 2015

Whoever came up with “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” wasn’t really that far off. Fruits and veggies are densely packed with nutrients your body needs to grow strong and healthy. Superfoods especially are nutrient powerhouses that cover all the bases, from the brain in your head to the bones in your toes. You might as well replace your medicine cabinet with a larger pantry and call it a day. Here at Rhythm Superfoods, we work for the Farmacy… and just your luck – the doctor is in.

Keep scrolling to learn about the many health benefits of kale.
