We are P&TY Granola Co – granola bars that say “Please & Thank You”
Our granola bars are made with gluten-free, whole ingredients, including nut butters that we make ourselves. Our bars are chewy and yummy and the perfect snack for kids and adults alike that are on the go. Feel good that when you bite into one of our bars, it will not only taste delicious but fill you with all the right nutrients. Beyond how good they taste; our bars are an invitation to act with respect. We name all our products after manners to spread kindness and remind people that even though we may not agree with each other we can still respect each other as humans. I want these granola bars to be so good that you want to grab one everyday and then are invited to act and make a difference.
I first started making granola bars for my husband because I just didn’t like the bars he was eating from the store, they were empty calories, no nutrition. I set out to make a granola bar that he liked but was also jam-packed full of good nutrients. I eventually started bringing them onsite with me as an event planner for my staff, as a little bit of home-made goodness to provide energy on long days. In 2019 one of my clients was a national health food grocer and the staff there asked me if I sold my bars. “No….but should I?!”
That was in April of 2019 and by June 2019 I sold my first granola bar!
I started P&TY in hopes to make products that are both nutritionally packed but also tasted super yummy.
It then evolved into a bigger message of mutual respect through good manners. I wanted my bars to be so good that everyday people would grab one and be reminded of the power of manners.
Manners, in the grand scheme of things means that you respect someone, even though you may not agree with them. At its essence we are all humans doing great things and we may just need a reminder to be kind to one another.
I think about the Ripple Effect of Manners:
- Eat a PTY Granola Bar
- Show up with good manners
- Mutual respect for each other
- Take that positive energy
- Share more joy
