In 2015, co-founder Evan Lampsa underwent open heart surgery to fix a congenital heart defect. While the event alone did not inspire him to create ketchup, it did motivate him to create healthier foods for people. Ketchup is a condiment many people do not perceive as detrimental to their health, but more than 20% of mainstream ketchup is made up of sugar alone.
At Ketchup Please, we believe in a healthier and happier America. Our product is specifically engineered to both provide an alternative to unhealthy mainstream brands, and put a smile on your face.
By providing consumers with a cause they can understand, and a mission they can believe in, Ketchup Please is making America a healthier and happier place, one ketchup bottle at a time.
Evan Lampsa is an avid golfer and enjoys developing Ketchup Please when he's off the course. Originally, Evan sought to create a brand centered around heart patients. His focus expanded to all people when co-founders Reed Kastner-Lang and Cole Montag became business partners with him. Evan also enjoys writing and cooking. Stay tuned for our upcoming blog: Blood, Sweat, and Ketchup.
