Jennifer Wiese saw a need and turned that need into a thriving business. A mother of four boys with dietary needs, one with autism. When Jennifer Wiese's oldest son was diagnosed with autism at the age of 8, she discovered that following a gluten- and casein-free diet helped him be a happier, thriving little boy. The hitch was that the gluten-free foods available on grocery store shelves were dry, bland and very expensive. "I wanted to give my son a chocolate chip cookie that tasted like a real chocolate chip cookie," she says. "The thought of feeding my family cardboard cookies just would not do!" Thus, BeeFree was born. At BeeFree, Jennifer does not value only their food and products but most importantly their people. They understand the needs of their customers and know how sensitive most of their bodies are, thus they make sure that all their products are free from contamination, preservatives and from junk. They also support their local community by providing people young and old a fun experience, and even individuals struggling with their disabilities to spend time in their facilities and make everyone feel special while working at the 'hive'.
