Our Small Business Snapshot series features photos that represent, in just one image, what the small businesses we feature are all about. Chom "Sunny" Kaminski, founder and owner of Sunny's Gourmet Products, explains how this image represents her business.
We are an all-natural line of grocery products that give you a simple and healthy to way to shake up your home cooking with Korean flavors. We currently have two products available, our Korean Teriyaki and Kimchee Seasoning.
We started in the restaurant business over 25 years ago and developed our own sauces and seasonings for use in our dishes. We just couldn't find anything in the market that was all-natural was low sodium, and tasted good, so we made our own! Eating well and healthy has always been at the core of who we are.
Over time, customers starting asking if they could buy our Korean Teriyaki sauce & Kimchee so they could make the magic of Sunny's at home. So we started bottling it up for special customers and it just grew from there.
The above photo represents the vibrancy of the unique flavor profiles of Korean cuisine and exemplifies our approach to healthy, clean eating and cooking with love.
Our biggest challenge currently is transitioning from a regional operation to a national one. We've been very fortunate to have wonderful partners like Whole Foods, Amazon.com and Lipari Distributors that believe in our products and have helped us grow from 10 stores to 10 states across the Midwest! We look forward to continued building of our partnerships and market presence to bring Sunny's to the entire U.S.
