Weg’s Seasoning is a company that can help “spice” up your life! The company was founded by Nathan Finch, a University of Utah MBA student. It specializes in hand-blended spices with no MSG or artificial flavors. Finch recently received a grant from the Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute Get Seeded milestone funding program to further his business. We asked Finch questions to learn more about his company. Here’s what he said:
Why did you choose the name ‘Weg’s Seasoning?’
The company is dedicated to my grandpa. My grandpa, whose last name is Weggeland, is an excellent cook and his cooking always brings my family together. That’s why I chose Weg’s Seasoning as the name of my company.
So why seasoning?
I absolutely love seasoning! It has to be one of the easiest ways to make basically any food delicious. I am always working on creating new recipes and finding ways to use my seasonings, and the best part about it, all of my recipes are easy so everyone can make them.
What do you hope to achieve with your company?
I hope to help and inspire people to learn how to cook and love how to cook! There are only a few things that are more important than cooking. It sounds extreme, but it’s completely true. Cooking brings family and friends together. Cooking also allows people to be creative and artistic while providing joy to those you share it with. It is also a very important part of life to understand where food comes from, and cooking gains greater respect for food. Truly, cooking plays a role in family, friendship, gratitude and joy, that sounds really important to me!
So what makes your company unique compared to others?
Our company provides seasonings that do not contain MSG or artificial flavors. Our motto is “strictly spices.” Also, we are launching videos on basic cooking techniques for people. We have designed our videos to be fun and entertaining while also inspiring people to cook.
