Seb Rametta is not just another businessman who has made it big in his chosen field; he is a visionary, who possesses the necessary skill, courage and intelligence to convert a simple venture into a worldwide success. His ability to judge emerging opportunities, trends, and the shifting competitive environment and utilize them for the further growth of his business has helped Seb Rametta become one of the most renowned and respected personality in the food service industry.
The success story of Mr. Rametta started in 1991, when he established Arnie’s Bagels, Inc. along with his partner. Arnie’s became the wholesale manufacturer of all-natural premium, par-baked authentic New York bagels. It did not take long for Mr. Rametta to turn Arnie’s into a major national brand catering to clients such as McDonald’s, Disney World, Dunkin’ Donuts, Roy Rogers, Friendly’s, A&P Supermarkets and King’s Supermarkets. Finally, in 1994, with the consent of all the partners, Arnie’s was sold to Quaker Oats, helping Seb and his co-founders earn a handsome profit.
Later, Seb Rametta and his partners invested in Ranch*1 Group, Inc, a grilled-chicken franchise company based in New York. This decision was motivated by the fact that increasing health trends and shifts in QSR market were impacting fried foods significantly. Mr Rametta was quick to identify the great recipes, great prices and a loyal customer base of Ranch*, which provided them with the edge needed to dominate the market.
After achieving enormous success with Ranch*1, Seb Rametta was in search of new and better opportunities. So, when he spotted the substantial opportunities that the “Original SoupMan” brand could provide, he entered into a strategic partnership with Al Yeganeh. The partnership, which was initiated in 2004, soon turned into a great success and has resulted in the creation of the present company, which has made a mark in the food service industry not only across America, but worldwide.
