Her three-year-old company, The Scrumptious Pantry, has seen sales increase fourfold in 2011. She won't disclose dollar amounts, but she says revenue is up 50 percent so far this year compared with last year.
Scrumptious Pantry products are now being sold in 10 states and in more than two dozen locations throughout the Chicago area. Future plans include a line of East Coast heirloom products and projections for revenues to be in the multimillions by 2015.
Not bad for products based on "old recipes!"
