About Marianna Chapman

Marianna Chapman spent two years trying to persuade her husband to get back to "real work" before joining the family food business in 2011. Before that, Marianna worked as a business consultant, writing frequently for her popular business blog, Results Revolution, producing a web-based business TV show, consulting and speaking regularly to national audiences on small business development and community marketing topics. As a farmer's daughter, Marianna is privileged to be an ambassador for Southern food products, the South's farming community and the amazing local chefs who prepare our food.
