Scott Rousseau has always been a self-proclaimed foodie with a passion for cooking. He also always wanted to run his own food-based business. In 2009, Scott decided to leave the safety and security of finance and go back to school to earn his MBA to equip himself with the tools necessary for running a small business. Upon graduation, Scott was looking to purchase a small start-up in the food industry. After a grueling and lengthy search, serendipity struck in February 2012, and he discovered Beyond The Shaker was on the market.
Having earned a degree in entrepreneurship Scott felt prepared to take on the challenge as a full-time owner. His wife Sarah spends much of her free time helping grow the business while she continues her day-job working in cardiac rehab at the Melrose-Wakefield Hospital.
It’s been an amazing journey for the two of them so far and the best part is creating new blends with the finest, organic ingredients and all-natural sea salt for all of you to enjoy! Each blend is created in small; 10 gallon batches in an effort maintain the quality of each batch. They are thrilled to work with some of the best suppliers in New England in an effort to support other local businesses. Scott and Sarah hope you enjoy their all-natural salt blends and encourage you to check out their comprehensive Salt Guide… because all salt is not created equal.
