Updated: Nov 6, 2021
How did Mid-Day Squares get started?
So.......This awesome woman, Lezlie created these insanely delicious Squares. She's the kinda' gal who lives to the beat of her own drum. Fun fact: Everyone who knows Lezlie calls her “Panda”. Lezlie is married to Nick and her brother is Jake, they are partners and the founders of Mid-Day Squares. This is their story:
In 2015, Lezlie started to really get into plant-based foods, always messing around in the kitchen. Nick, who was her roommate and best friend since 14, was always turning to the typical confectionery chocolate bars like… Oh Henry! to be specific. To convince him into Lezlie's vibe of eating she whipped up a version of what is known today as Mid-Day Squares.
In 2017, Nick and Lezlie got married and decided they can make a food brand that resonated with their peoples, their vibe, and their way of living. After countless hours, trials and taste tests they were finally ready to release their first flavor, “Fudge Yah” in 2018.
They knew, in order to explode the brand, they needed to bring on Lezlie's brother, Jake aka Jaques. Jake's ability to build hype, create a loyal fan base and make their guests brand evangelists was just what they needed. 20 months in, they have celebrated their one millionth bar sold!
