Emily and Renee make a good team. Both co-founders are incredibly driven and complement each other well. Emily is assertive and direct, ensuring decisions are taken in a timely manner. Renee is enthusiastic, winning over potential investors and buyers with her convincing sales pitches. However, the company is struggling. They have been in Whole Foods for the past three years, but their sourcing methods lead to higher prices that can't compete with Whole Foods' popular 365 brand. The company is currently in debt, and relying on their new venture, EverSpice, to save the company from bankruptcy. While they may not be personally liable for these debts, they have invested their life savings in the company.

Their new product, EverSpice, addresses the problem of the average cook who needs to buy a variety of spices for a recipe, and is frustrated at having to buy a whole jar when they only need a pinch. The product is a spice sleeve that includes 1 tbsp of a spice, split into ¼ tsp containers. The package is made from aluminum, a highly recyclable material, and uses atmosphere technology to seal in freshness at the molecular level.

The target market is a mix of Millennials who are beginning to move beyond microwave meals into more complicated recipes, and older empty-nesters who are taking up cooking as a hobby. Millennials are "invested in cooking with fresh, high-quality ingredients and delaying marriage and children, therefore cooking for only one or two people longer into their adult lives". These packets are more affordable than a traditional spice jar, and the founders plan to target traditional grocery stores and superstores, in addition to specialty grocers like Whole Foods and Trader Joe's.

This product reduces the waste caused by discarding aging and unused spices. It also maintains spice freshness, and of 50 taste tests where people were served two versions of dishes, one made with EverSpice and the other with older dried spaces, in 47 out of 50 cases, people preferred the dish made with fresh spices.
