Keeping food cold so I can help you “Keep It Paleo!” is what takes up most of my time nowadays.
Negative ten degrees is ideal, but we’ll take -20 if we can get it. We’ve been running our Ice Age Meals operation out of a 160 square foot freezer for the past year, but just closed on a 2,000 square foot freezer last Friday. I found the place back in February and have been working with the broker and owners ever since. The facility was used by Kraft Foods for storing DiGiorno pizzas over the course of 8 years. It’s been vacant for over two years and is the perfect fit for the Ninjas and I. Well, almost…
2,000 square feet is 12.5 times the size of our current freezer, so we are in the process of dividing the new freezer in half so that we aren’t wasting resources on cooling unnecessary space. Over the past 4 days, a dividing wall has gone up, we are now just waiting for the door to be mounted. From there, we’ll transition our cold storage and distribution operation from The Paleo Test Kitchen to the Super Awesome Paleo Empire Compound (SAPEC). This size of facility will allow for a large amount of growth, but I’ve got big plans and the confidence that we’ll be breaking new ground before you know it.
The next milestone is building a new kitchen facility and gym on the property. This will allow the Ninjas to have top notch training on a daily basis without having to go off site to do so.
My goal is to build an empire of health, fitness, tasty food and fun. I will not measure success in dollars and cents, but by inches lost and years added to life. The mornings come early and the nights run late in an effort to realize this dream, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I hope that you’ll follow along and that, if you find it in your heart (and your wallet) to do so, that you’ll help fund this project. We’ve still got a forklift and a box truck to purchase and the other expenses for a project this large are never ending. While we can always finance, funding is more my flavor. In line with this is the Fund Our Freezer project. So, please take a look and take a part in helping us make positive difference in the world.
I will do my best to make you proud, and do my bester to help all y’all…
“Keep It Paleo!”
