Laura Fuentes: CEO of MOMables
Laura Fuentes is on a quest to make healthy living simple and delightful.
As a founder and CEO of MOMables.com, Laura provides meal planning and recipes to assist busy families in preparing healthy, home-cooked meals. She is also a cookbook author, TV presenter, spokeswoman, and product designer. She’s the genuine deal when it comes to making the life of a culinary lifestyle entrepreneur look effortless!
Beginnings of an Entrepreneurship
Laura, a self-proclaimed “foodie” from an early age, always came up with business concepts centred on food. Laura started her first company selling door-to-door baked cookies when she was ten. Although that venture was short-lived (her parents were not pleased with her wandering around the neighborhood), it set the seed for her future career as a food entrepreneur.
Laura started a corporate job in marketing after college but quickly realized it wasn’t for her. She wished to be her employer and follow her passion for cuisine full-time. Laura took the plunge and resigned from her day job in 2010 to launch MOMables.com.
The Evolution of MOMables
After nine years, MOMables has grown into a thriving online business with thousands of users worldwide. What began as a tiny blog with family-friendly recipes has evolved into a full-service meal planning service with an app, cookbooks, merchandise, and more.
Laura created FreshPrep in 2019, a meal kit delivery service that helps busy families get healthy meals on the table without cooking from scratch. Everything is prepared and ready to go with FreshPrep; all you have to do is heat it! Since its inception, the company has grown steadily and shows no indications of slowing down anytime soon.
Laura is an inspiration to young entrepreneurs everywhere, having gone from selling cookies door-to-door to starting two thriving culinary enterprises. If you want to start your own food business, check out MOMables and FreshPrep — you won’t be disappointed!
