Whether it’s a special occasion or not, food has the incredible power of bringing people together. Rachel Blanks discovered her passion for cooking early on in life and has been featured on various platforms for her recipes. Eventually, her passion blossomed into Simply Savory by Rachel, a business that made the nation realize the endless possibilities in cooking.
Founded in 2019, Simply Savory by Rachel offers over a dozen complete seasoning blends that allow anyone to create irresistible dishes with bold flavors. The brand upholds the principle of removing the limitations unprofessional cooks often feel in their own kitchens. Rachel was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2012, and so her movement in the kitchen became limited. Still, cooking remained to be her therapy. Eventually, she worked her way around her condition and innovated a way to prepare food for her family without any compromise.
“I know so many people who have so little yet get dinner on the table every day,” said Rachel. “My company was built around removing limitations from cooking for people. Why be limited in the kitchen? Flavor has no limits with Simply Savory by Rachel,” she added.
Prior to the founding of Simply Savory by Rachel, the CEO cooked her way in hopes to build a business around her passion for food. She is from Florida A&M University with a degree in business administration and a master’s degree in educational leadership. But Rachel knew that her heart lay elsewhere. So the founder fearlessly braved the industry and showed the world her talent through cooking.
Rachel would cook up a storm for her family and friends. They were quick to notice how her recipes carried love and passion. Simultaneously, Rachel was making waves as she appeared on the cooking segment of WCTV known as The Domestic Diva. She realized how people would be amazed by her seasoning but knew that not everyone had the same resources at home to recreate some of her dishes. That marked the beginning of Simply Savory by Rachel as the founder created multipurpose seasoning for the people she loves, although it wasn’t until years later that it became a brand.
Adding a little spice to her wedding favors in 2011, Rachel gave her 250 guests her signature multipurpose seasoning instead of the traditional tokens. Rachel received various requests not long after that and decided that it was time to let the public have a taste of her secret to effortless meals. Simply Savory by Rachel provides a game-changer for people who love to cook without having to buy five to seven individual spices for one dish.
Simply Savory by Rachel opens up a new world of bold flavors for people who love to bring their family and friends together at the table, enjoying a home-cooked meal. The founder wants to share new flavors and remove the intimidation that spices might pose to home cooks by simplifying the art of flavors for their everyday needs.
Five years from now, the founder aims for Simply Savory by Rachel to have a small spice shop available for walk-in customers looking for authentic smell and taste with her multipurpose seasoning. Rachel also wants to publish her own cookbook featuring her famous spice blends.
