Anniversary celebration for West Seattle entrepreneur

Got that cameraphone photo from Jean Lange of Cucina Fresca – after team members at the company surprised its owner, Chef Brad Glaberson of West Seattle, with a seventh-anniversary cake today. It’s not his seventh anniversary of owning it, but rather 7 years since he joined the company in 2003. He bought it three years later, and now it produces 30 pasta and sauce products sold in 400 stores in 10 states. According to Jean, not only has Cucina Fresca moved to bigger production facilities twice, Glaberson now employs 40 people and is focusing on “green” business practices. He’s been a chef since age 19. This afternoon, his staff surprised him with his favorite kind of cake (yellow with chocolate frosting), to mark the anniversary. (Cucina Fresca is headquartered near Boeing Field.)

    Photos taken while eating are always so flattering aren’t they?
    Cucina Fresca makes a really awesome wild mushroom ravioli.
