John Scharffenberger joins Hodo!
We are really excited to have John Scharffenberger join Hodo Soy Beanery as our CEO!
Like just about every other employee, he first discovered Hodo at his local farmer's market. While he admittedly was not a huge fan of tofu, he was wowed by his first taste of Hodo's Tofu and it made a lasting impression. Hodo's freshly made tofu, soy milk, and yuba was completely different from what he associated with store bought, shelf stable soy products.
As John got to know more about Hodo Soy Beanery, including Minh Tsai, founder and tofu master, and John Notz, CFO, he took a more active interest and became an investor and director in 2008. John Scharffenberger's role will be to help grow Hodo's sales and distribution network while at the same time, maintaining its commitment to quality and stellar customer service.
