Imagine this: a passionate and determined mom, just like you or me, who recognized the need for healthier options when it came to feeding our little athletes. She saw a world full of sugary and unhealthy snacks, and she knew something had to change.

So, she put on her superhero cape and set out on a journey to create nutritious snacks that kids would actually love. And guess what? She succeeded! Now, kids all around can refuel with tasty snacks that are good for them without compromising on flavor.

She knew that the key to getting kids excited about healthy snacks was to make them fun and irresistible. So, she crafted a range of delicious snacks in various flavors, shapes, and sizes that were specifically designed to appeal to young taste buds. From fruity energy bars to crunchy granola bites, she created a whole menu of goodies that kids couldn’t resist.

And here’s the best part: not only are these snacks yummy, but they’re also packed with all the good stuff kids need to stay energized and perform their best on the ice. With nutritious ingredients like whole grains, fruits, and nuts, these treats provide a balanced boost of energy and essential nutrients.

So, moms and dads out there, when your little ones come home from a hockey game or practice, you can feel confident knowing that they’re nourishing their bodies with snacks that are both tasty and healthy. No more guilt about giving them unhealthy options!

Guess what? Playing sports is totally good for you. It’s a healthy activity that keeps you fit and active. But I’ve got a little problem to talk about. You see, sometimes when you go to a sports event, the food and snacks they give you aren’t always the healthiest. Bummer, right? Well, that’s where Hockey Snacks comes in. They’re on a mission to change all that!

The person who started the company, Seanna Thomas, had a special reason for starting it. You know what happened? She had an experience with her own son’s team, and it made her think, Hey, we need to do something about this! So, that’s exactly what she did. Her company has been growing and changing, especially during the pandemic. Cool, huh? You can read all about their journey right here in this week’s Small Business Spotlight.

What’s Their Business All About?

Hockey Snacks delivers tasty snacks that are good for you to sports teams and tournaments. But here’s the really cool part – their snacks are nutritious and allergy-friendly. That means they’re good for everyone, even if you have allergies. Seanna Thomas, the founder of Hockey Snacks, explained it like this: “We want to give young athletes, teams, tournaments, and families all over the world the right information and education about nutrition.

What Makes Them So Special?

Hockey Snacks serves a special group of people – athletes and sports teams. They’re like a one-of-a-kind snack provider just for them. It’s pretty unique, right? You won’t find anything else like it!

I’m telling you, there’s no other business around Toronto, Ontario that does what we do!

How We Got Started

It all began with a personal experience.

Let me explain. I saw my son, who was only 7 years old at the time, after a super early hockey practice on a Saturday morning. One of the parents had brought a bunch of Doritos for the team to munch on. Right then and there, I knew we could make a positive change. And that’s how my business took off and transformed into what it is today!

My Greatest Achievement

I remember the first time I served at an event. It was in a cozy little town called Elmira. Everyone there was overjoyed to have access to wholesome snacks instead of the usual pointless trinkets that are often given out at sports tournaments.

The Risk that Paid Off

When COVID hit, I faced a difficult decision. I decided to shift my entire business online, which was a huge gamble. The pandemic left me with no other choice. It hasn’t been easy, and there are still challenges to overcome, but it’s also been incredibly exhilarating to witness my business evolving in ways I never imagined.

The Lesson I Learned

I’ve come to realize the importance of planning. Since my business was initially unplanned, I wish I had taken the time to do more research and carefully consider certain aspects before diving in. It would have saved me some trouble along the way.

If I Had an Extra $100,000

If I had an extra $100,000, I would definitely use it to make my business even better. I would hire someone to help me make things run more smoothly and efficiently. This would free up my time and allow me to focus on growing my business. I would also use some of the money to promote my services through marketing. This way, I could reach out to sports leagues that cannot afford to hire nutritionists. I believe that everyone should have access to the knowledge of how to properly fuel themselves!

An Interesting Fact

Even though my business is called Hockey Snacks, we don’t just serve hockey players. In fact, we offer our services to athletes in all sports, no matter where they are. The reason why it’s called Hockey Snacks is because that was the first sport that showed interest in what I do. I was so involved in the hockey culture, being a typical Canadian mom, that I never imagined my business would grow so much and expand beyond just one sport!
