One of the many perks to working at Happy & Healthy – free fruit bars!

Linda Kamm, President

Hi there! My name is Linda Kamm and I am the founder of our company, Happy & Healthy Products, Inc. I personally would like to thank you for visiting our website and, of course, eating our fabulous Fruitfull® fruit bars and other products. We truly appreciate your loyalty and we welcome all of your suggestions and comments. Please email us (help@happyandhealthy.com) since one of the best things about our business is hearing from our consumers.

I am truly blessed because I work with great people. It’s a team effort to bring our delicious products to you.

My H&H staff is the most dedicated, hardworking (and fun-loving) group of people in the world. Everyone at the production factory does an outstanding job making our great products. Our franchisees “bend over backwards” to offer the highest customer service possible. Our Fruitfull® Family wants everyone to Be Happy & Healthy®!

I am also blessed because I married my best friend. It’s a “mixed marriage” though, because I am a Georgia Bulldog and my husband is a Florida Gator. We enjoy all kinds of sports and I especially like to participate in golf and fishing. I /we love cooking, gardening, traveling, entertaining, and collecting shells on the beach. But mostly, we just love hanging out with our family and friends.

I am also blessed because I married my best friend and we recently celebrated our 20th anniversary!


Rona Doyle, General Manager

I am very excited to be a part of the Happy & Healthy Products, Inc. family. My experience shows that a satisfied Customer is crucial to a successful business and my favorite saying is “A mistake only becomes an error if left uncorrected”.

If you get the chance to speak with me, you may find a slight accent or a few words said differently as I am from Western Canada. I have a few hobbies that include winemaking, stitching, gardening, reading and relaxing at the beach. But the most rewarding time I spend outside the office is with my husband Rob, daughter Rhea, and son Rylan.


Len Murray, Vice President of Operations

My main responsibilities at H&H are network administrator, manufacturing & quality control, equipment support (freezers, carts, etc.), video communications and developing product packaging for new and existing products.

I also work closely with each new franchisee to plan out the best path to tailor their delivery and storage aspects of the business to meet their goals. Happy & Healthy has a wide range of franchisees operating from small apartments and cars for delivery to large warehouses with full size freezer trucks. My experience as a franchisee (my parents and I shared a franchise for 3 years) gives me the ideal background for such a task.

Living in Florida for the past 30+ years has given me the opportunity to enjoy lots of outdoor activities, year round, such as football, tennis, swimming etc. I also enjoy playing guitar (poorly) as well as many other hobbies. If anyone would like to know what it’s like to be a franchisee as well as what H&H offers as a franchisor just give me a call!


Rita Hammett, Director of Communications

Hello, everyone! Need a hand with an advertising idea or promotional story? How about a tour around our website? Want to share a suggestion or an idea for improvements? I’m your gal.

Born and raised in southern Alabama, I spent a few years in Georgia before migrating to southern Florida in 1998 and, barring the occasional hurricane, I love it! And working for Happy & Healthy is the icing on the cake — or I should say, the chocolate coating on the fruit bar.

When not enjoying myself at the H & H office, I write essays and short stories, read almost anything I can get my hands on, sew Renaissance costumes, and spend time with my now grown-up daughter, Tonia. I also have a cat-in-a-dog-suit (AKA, a Chihuahua) named Sunni. His hobbies include napping in my lap, eating, and dragging me out for regular walks around the neighborhood.


Leslie Frazer, Franchisee Coordinator

My start at Happy & Healthy was faster than the rate at which my family can consume Fruitfull® bars, which is pretty quick! Linda Kamm is not only a great business woman but she is a great salesman who convinced me to join Happy & Healthy after a long career with Pepperidge Farm, Inc.

I am very glad I did! With me it’s all about surrounding myself with good people. I thoroughly enjoy my new team and interacting with prospective franchisees.

For those who know me well, they know I am upbeat and positive. I come from a solid Midwest background; born and raised in Ohio in a large fun family and went to college in Indiana. I have been in the Deerfield Beach/Boca Raton area over 30 years. My husband and I enjoy our grandson Jack, son Daniel and his wonderful wife Kate. I love sports! Golf, Baseball, College Football – Go Notre Dame!

I like to bake, read and garden.

In my new job I will be focusing on Franchise Sales. I promise to do all I can, and more, to enable our Happy & Healthy family of franchisees to grow.


Gregory Gorney, National Sales

Being “Happy & Healthy” are two things that I have always striven for in life. So, joining the talented team at this company would seem as though it was inevitably meant to be! My role is an exciting combination of developing franchise business and national accounts, along with my love of promoting specialty foods, healthy products, and traveling the country.

On the Healthy side, I brought over over fourteen years of natural/organic product industry experience to the company. I’m also an industry lifestyle person, staying active, environmentally conscious, and eating at a pescatarian-style level while “vegging out” as much as possible. My previous experience  as a regional manager offers sales insights, strategies, stories, and expertise that is helpful to insure success of new franchisees.

On the Happy side, I’m an “Ohio escapee” and have been living a Jimmy Buffett-type dream lifestyle in South Florida for over 25 years. You can find me at the beach or in the ocean as much as possible; enjoying swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, and body boarding, or indeed just using my personal “license to chill.” When not there, I’m on one of my three motorcycles: a 1980 Harley-Davidson Sportster (mine since I was 17!), a 1997 Buell Cyclone, and a 2006 Harley Super Glide 35th Anniversary edition. My beach boy/biker combo is topped off with a love of cooking, gourmet foods and fine wines.

My pride bursts over my two healthy-lifestyle, vibrant kids. Lauren, is a recent duel major University of Miami graduate now in management at a Victoria’s Secret store in South Florida, and Gregory II is a proud Gator at the University of Florida. We are all very close, and both are supportive of their father’s career and Happy & Healthy Products!


Carlie Siegel, Sales & Marketing Consultant

Hi everyone!

My name is Carlie Siegel and Happy & Healthy has been a part of my life for over 20 years now. I have had a love affair with Fruitfull® bars since I was 9 years when my mom was working at Happy & Healthy. Some of my best memories from my childhood was going to the office and being able to enjoy as many Fruitfull® bars as my heart desired.

I may be a born and raised Floridian but I love to travel and venture out as much as possible. My favorite place to visit is Chicago so that I can watch the loves of my life (the Chicago Cubs) play ball at Wrigley Field. I have so much passion for life and love trying out new things and pushing my own limits to continue to challenge myself. I fuel my happiness by spending as much time by the ocean as possible. I am scuba certified (which makes me a real life mermaid) and love going paddle boarding. My other favorite hobbies include reading, baking/cooking and practicing/teaching yoga.

My role here at H&H is a combination of franchise sales as well as developing franchise business and national accounts. I am very excited about joining and contributing to the family here at H&H!

 

Joni Henderson, Administrative Assistant

I was looking for a part-time job when I met Linda back in 2009.  Fortunately, there was an opening for an Administrative Assistant at Happy & Healthy Products at the time and the rest is history! 

My primary responsibilities here are to process National Account Invoices and payments and to help staff in any way possible.

I have lived in Delray Beach, Florida almost all my life, as the relaxed pace of Florida living suits me to a tee.  I enjoy reading, watching sports, especially FOOTBALL!, enjoying time with my family and friends, and playing with my three cats.
