Our Vision Is Simple
Farm to Fit was born in 2011 by G. Scott Brown and Dré Slaman, who were looking for a service just like ours and couldn’t find one – so in true entrepreneurial spirit, they decided to create it! In the beginning, G. Scott and Dré ran all facets of the operation with one chef, out of a shared commercial kitchen in North Portland. As pioneers of the healthy prepared meal delivery concept in Portland, the duo realized they hit on something and were ready to expand to a larger kitchen in Downtown Portland, then quickly in another on NE Sandy Blvd.
The business continued to grow and so did their family with the birth of their daughter, Pierce, in July of 2014. In July of 2015, already busting at the seams in their new kitchen, G. Scott and Dré, bought a Used Volvo Parts warehouse in NE Portland.
Over the next year, they built a customized commercial kitchen in Northeast Portland, doubled their kitchen space, and created a kitchen for Farm to Fit to call home. Farm to Fit has regular customers throughout the Portland region, including Happy Valley, Lake Oswego, Tigard, Hillsboro, Beaverton, Vancouver, and Salem and is proud to employ over 30 team members who are committed to making the Farm to Fit experience stellar.
Dré is a San Diego native that arrived in beautiful Portland, via many cities, in 2010. She comes from a family of entrepreneurs and business ownership is in her blood. An actor by trade and training, Dré received her MFA in Acting from Northern Illinois University, and when she is not joyfully grinding it out at Farm to Fit, can be seen on TV and theatre in the Portland area. Dré believes healthy eating should be easy, accessible and delicious, and that excellent customer service is paramount to a business designed to help people.
