About Me

James F. Richardson, Ph.D.

15+ years of consulting experience helping brands grow and thrive

I've advised on  growth strategy at every point in the food and beverage product life cycle, from early stage to mature, legacy brands.

I know how the entire strategic playbook must alter as the business grows from a hot product into a powerful brand.


It's time to level the playing field.

I'm here to democratize access to growth strategy consulting services traditionally only available to the Big Guys.

In today's early stage food and beverage marketplace, consumer-centric growth strategy is the best tool to overcome the sales and supply chain advantages of larger competitors. 

If you want to enhance your competitive odds of survival and above average growth, I want to work with you.
