Stacey Marcellus co-founded Cappello’s with Ben Frohlichstein soon after discovering she was gluten-intolerant herself.
Cappello’s is a Colorado-based gourmet food company specializing in gluten-free, grain-free products. Founded in 2011 by friends, Ben and Stacey, the inspiration for Cappello’s was born out of a desire to create a totally unique food company and to be the best at what they do. Cappello’s: Challenging the foundation of traditional comfort food.
Friends and co-founders Ben Frohlichstein and Stacey Marcellus had always shared a love for cooking and feeding people. But it wasn’t until they ditched their jobs in search of a life in which they could add a different kind of value to the world that this passion truly began to flourish.
Invigorated by their farm experiences, Ben and Stacey reunited in Colorado, determined to find a way to share their newfound love of cooking with simple, real foods. They began by experimenting with creating a new kind of pasta. One made from nutritionally relevant ingredients, with a taste and texture unrivaled by traditional pastas. A dish that could be enjoyed by all discerning pasta lovers, regardless of dietary restriction. Through their own journeys, Ben and Stacey had each uncovered the benefits of grain-free foods. Thousands of miles of pasta strands later, the very first almond flour fettuccine was born. And with it, the Cappello’s brand.
Today, Ben and Stacey lead a team of spirited food lovers, guiding Cappello’s on its mission to set a new standard for frozen food. To shift the prepackaged paradigm in a nutritionally relevant and sustainable direction. To be a source of uncompromised delight for the body and spirit. To bring good and creativity into the world in the most deliciously unique paleo-friendly, grain-, gluten- and guilt-free ways.
