After 5 years of working in Finance, Alysia, the owner of Caramunchies (The Snacker's Snack) started her own company when she realized that she wanted to pursue a career that she was passionate about. Her clients at the bank would assume she had a degree in business and kind of laugh when she would tell them she had a degree in Food and Nutrition. Turns out that degree would be super useful after all!
She grew up in a big family that loves to cook and share meals together, with a dad who’s been in the food industry in Edmonton as long as she can remember! Her happiest memories are from family dinners at her grandma’s house when everyone would help cook and then all sit at the round dining table to enjoy the homemade food together.
Those gatherings would always be loud dinners full of laughs with everyone talking over each other. Because of this, food grew to be her love language. Whenever there’s something to celebrate, she will invite people over for dinner or go out for a meal together. If someone’s not feeling well, she will bring them some goodies to cheer them up. She started Caramunchies to make snacks that satisfy and to share her love of food with all those around her!
