Salt and Straw

Salt & Straw Co-Founder and CEO Kim Malek Visits ICE

A food industry leader, innovator and entrepreneur, Kim Malek built Portland, Oregon-based ice cream company Salt & Straw from a humble ice cream cart into a rapidly expanding, family-run concept still serving small-batch, locally sourced, creative flavors at nearly 20 locations after eight years. Today, ​Salt & Straw has scoop shops in Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle and Downtown Disney in Anaheim, and the brand will soon have a presence right here in Pasadena. Join us as Kim shares what it takes to start and run a successful food business.
