Family-owned granola business selling new line

Cincinnati Enquirer – January 17, 2016

McCabe’s Granola, a family-owned granola business based in Indian Hill, recently began its fifth and newest flavor of granola at Kroger.

The new line, which is paleo, is called Caveman Crunch.

The new line does not contain oats, so the product is high in protein and low in carbohydrate.

“We are excited about this new addition as it crosses over from just being a breakfast to an all-day snack,” CEO Susan Muth said in a news release.

“It’s great to keep in the car, backpack, brief case or purse for a convenient and healthy alternative when you need something to keep you going.” Muth added.

McCabe’s Granola is sold in 1,000 grocery stores in 18 states.

Yahoo: 8 Best All-Natural Cereals for Weight Loss

Bad news, cereal lovers: It’s about to get harder to start your day with a rich, comforting bowl of tartrazine.
Wait…you didn’t know you were enjoying tartrazine each morning? If you eat boxed cereal, you probably are. It’s a food dye, also known as Yellow #5, that’s been linked to concentration disorders in children, and it’s found in many brightly colored cereals, like Kellogg’s Froot Loops. And after years of Eat This, Not That! warning you about additives, Kellogg’s finally just announced that it was eliminating all artificial colors and flavors from its cereals, meaning you’ll soon have to go without your daily dose of Red #40, Blue #1 and other chemicals not found in nature.
The company is giving itself until 2018 to make the switch, but if you want to cut down on the contents of your morning chemistry set, and enjoy a metabolism boost in the meantime, there are plenty of options available right now. The food lab at Eat This, Not That! magazine has identified the best all-natural cereals in the supermarket. They may not have a cute cartoon character on the front or a prize at the bottom, but they will fuel your day right and help you […]

WALNUT HILLS — McCabe’s Granola, the all-natural cereal launched by two University of Cincinnati graduate students in 2006, is getting a marketing and sales boost from new owners, who plan to take the product into grocery and specialty markets around the country.

Chris and Susan Muth and their sons Jameson, 28, and Michael, 25, bought McCabe’s in June with a plan to grow the business significantly.

McCabe’s was founded by Marie McCabe and Kate Desmond, who have moved on to different pursuits. McCabe developed the granola from a personal recipe, and took it to market after it became popular with her UC campus social circle.

Sales quickly grew in the first five years, as the product expanded from UC cantinas to local coffee shops and eventually to about a dozen area Kroger stores.

Made of rolled oats, sunflower seeds, cashews, ground flax seeds, raisins, pumpkin seeds and almonds, the granola is sweetened with 100 percent maple syrup. It comes in original, blueberry, cranberry, and peanut butter and chocolate flavors. Prices vary at about $4 for a 12-ounce bag.

Chris Muth discovered the business was for sale through his work as a business attorney with downtown firm Dinsmore & Shohl. Susan […]
