Casey Cochran / Fit Food Fresh

Casey Cochran and Stephen Kaiser, founders of Fit Food Fresh, couldn’t have predicted they’d be running the highest rated meal plan in Florida when they started just 5 years ago. With no experience in the health, fitness, or nutrition industries, they dove head first into solving the problems they saw in the meal plan industry; creating a service that was truly “by members, for members”.

Before Fit Food Fresh, Casey’s experience seems to cover everything BUT health and nutrition; firefighting, insurance, call centers, and even building a national attorney network. His versatility is well matched with the variety of challenges he faces overseeing operations at Fit Food Fresh, and he loves taking on new projects and constantly learning new skills for creating solutions.
