With every notch in a company’s growth, there’s an individual in the office with a whole lot of spreadsheets, and a few more gray hairs…or no hair at all! At No Evil Foods, that person is Mike Woliansky, our wizard behind the curtain.

It was here that he learned resourcefulness in the face of great odds against success, and experienced nearly every aspect of entrepreneurship and business management imaginable. He also spent time as a freelance writer, and cut his teeth in the food world at four-star restaurants like The Dining Room at the Inn on Biltmore Estate.
Mike graduated from Penn State University with a BA in English and a Minor in Business.
