Lynnae Schneller, a lifelong pickler turned her family pickling pastime into Lynnae’s Gourmet Pickles, a thriving commercial business. Since 2011, Lynnae has produced her savory pickles from her company headquarters in Fircrest, Washington, with sister-in-law, Aly Cullinane – Partner and VP of Sales. The duo has gone from selling 1,000 jars in the first month of business to producing 10,000 jars a month. Initially only available in select gourmet stores along the West Coast, Lynnae’s Gourmet Pickles recently expanded into new markets across the U.S.
The company’s secret recipe spans three generations and in a similar fashion to how the pickles were made generations ago, all ingredients including the spices are fresh, gluten-free and do not contain dyes or added preservatives. She currently has three flavors of pickles that range from $7.00-$9.00 a jar. Sales for this year are expected to come in at $240k. Visit www.lynnaesgourmetpickles.com.
