Ricks Picks NYC
Whenever I walk through the Greenmarket in Union Square I feel compelled to buy everything. Bringing a cart is key otherwise forget it.
About three years ago I was walking through the market and came upon Ricks Picks NYC. Innovative guy (Rick) who had created wonderful pickled products in a jar. I tasted and chatted. Asked if he had a website (because I didn’t have my cart), etc. Weeks later, Ricks Picks was written up in the New York Times.
Over the years, I have been watching his business grow from a far. I noticed his pickles at specialty shops like Citarella and then Whole Foods and even a tiny shop in Maine.
About a month ago, I was introduced to Rick though a friend. Ricks biz is growing and he was looking for possible investors. I got together with Rick, who happens to be one smart guy and talked.
I am thrilled to say that we are now investors in Ricks Picks. Looking forward to working with Rick and hopefully helping his biz grow in 2008 and beyond. And of course eating lots of pickled treats.
