I Heart Keenwah, a quinoa products company, announces its recent closing of Series A investment. The Chicago-based company, with offices in New York, will use the funding to invest in sales and marketing.
The financing was led by Washington, D.C.-based Anzu Partners.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Anzu to build out the I Heart Keenwah brand,” said Ravi Jolly, I Heart Keenwah president and co-founder. “Since launching the company in 2010 at a local food market in Brooklyn, New York, it has been my dream to grow I Heart Keenwah into a nationally recognized, delicious, healthy snack brand that consumers can enjoy, and this financing is another step towards achieving that goal.”
In conjunction with the capital raise, I Heart Keenwah also recently announced the launch of its second product offering, Quinoa Puffs, available in Aged Cheddar, Sea Salt Truffle, Sweet Chili and Herbes de Provence flavors. The light, airy and portable snacks are ideal for people looking for a healthy snack with nutritional value that still tastes delicious. Like I Heart Keenwah’s flagship product, Quinoa Clusters, these new Quinoa Puffs are all-natural, Non-GMO Project Verified and Certified Gluten-Free.
