How 3 brothers built an artisanal pickle empire
Meet the pickle brothers.
Will, John, and Joe spent 2 years perfecting pickle recipes and founded The Pittsburgh Pickle Company in 2014.
At the start, the brothers were slicing cucumbers and bottling all their products by hand.
As customer demand grew, they realized they needed some equipment to help speed up production.
Raised $50,000 from their community
The brothers decided to run a crowdfunding campaign on Honeycomb to raise money for large co-packing equipment. They raised $50,000 with the support of 33 community investors!
