The Foodnited States

Chris started The Foodnited States in 2017. They detail the beginnings of their company in their Starter Story interview: [1]

Q: How did you get started on The Foodnited States?

The Foodnited States actually started as an idea from my then 8-yr-old son, Cameron. His idea to “make each state out of food” turned into a photo series that I developed and it eventually went viral on Instagram in 2015.

The story of the Foodnited States was mentioned on The Today Show and featured on Newsday, Food and Wine, Conde Nast Traveler and many others. Cameron and I were even able to score an appearance on The Rachael Ray Show.

My career as an art director and experience as a professional cook really came into play, as I created all 50 states out of food by hand.

After the series was over, merchandise seemed like a logical next step, after many requests from fans to do so. The brand was launched with the initial line of tees in 2016.
