David started Kitchen Safe in 2012. They detail the beginnings of their company in their Starter Story interview: 
Q: How did you get started on Kitchen Safe?
I had put on some extra pounds from snacking on junk food before dinner, and so I wanted something to help me enjoy the occasional dessert, without allowing me to snack throughout the day.
My first solution involved my wife Jenny hiding the junk food, but in the event of a strong craving, I could find anything.
After playing hide and seek with my cookies for a few years, the idea dawned on me. If I had a container with a timed locking mechanism to store my food, I would not be able to snack, and my Wife and I could stop with the hide and seek games.
So, I went about creating the concept of the Kitchen Safe. With the Kitchen Safe, I need only muster 10 seconds of will-power, to put items in the container, in order to avoid snacking for an entire week.
I believe we developed a great product with the potential to make a meaningful difference in the lives of others. Poor diet is one of the biggest problems facing America. 69% of US adults are overweight, and more than ½ of US adults and 17%,
Also, 12.5 Million children are obese, resulting in medical conditions such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and strokes. Medical costs associated with obesity are estimated at $147Bn.
While I’m not a health expert or dietician, I know the Kitchen Safe can help others because it has helped me. Since I started using the Kitchen Safe, I have avoided the mid-day snaking and lost 5-10 pounds thus far.
Now that I know the Kitchen Safe is effective, it has become my mission to make this great tool available for others to benefit from as well.
