Our approach

Food is a cornerstone of everyday life.

When e2p began, we saw an opportunity to apply our experience in the food industry to cultivate enduring partnerships, foster sustainable value, and create profound opportunities for the food entrepreneurs we invest in, their employees, customers, communities, and our investors. We knew capital alone wasn’t enough, so we built this company on a network of expertise, and a holistic approach to the food space.

e2p is led by seven tenured and accomplished partners who bring more than 150 years of collective, relevant, and complementary experience. We’ve fostered meaningful relationships and gained unparalleled experience in the food and beverage industry. We believe we know this space like no one else.

Meet Our Team


We maintain an advantage in sourcing.

We’ve built an exclusive sourcing network exposing us to new and future opportunities, with the goal to be the first private equity owner of every platform investment we pursue. Our proprietary, thesis-driven methods create opportunities and tangible benefits for all parties.


We embrace transformation and invest in growth.

Laying the groundwork for driving sustainable growth is essential. We create a tailored Business Transformation Plan (“BTP”) for each potential investment. This plan establishes clear goals and defines performance expectations for each company, aligning objectives and rewards for all stakeholders, and fostering accountability.
