Meet the Pre-Made Paleo Team

Richard Bradford, Executive Chef and Managing Partner

Chef Richard is the team captain at Pre-Made Paleo, as well as the managing partner of our parent company, RSB Foods. He is our on-staff visionary and always brings new ideas to the table. While bringing culinary innovation to Atlanta for over a decade, Chef Richard was also the first to pioneer chef-prepared Paleo meals directly to the doorsteps of consumers across the nation.

Richard is our greatest brand ambassador.  He travels across the United States to promote Pre-Made Paleo and to establish and nurture strong partnerships, like the ones we have with the Whole30, US Wellness Meats and the Armour Yards District. 

Richard is in constant pursuit of new partnerships with suppliers who align with Pre-Made Paleo's mission.  To provide the best and healthiest meals to our customers, all of our ingredients come from certified organic farmers, local farmers with organic practices and ranchers that raise livestock that is true to Paleo. 

After graduating from Georgia Tech with a degree in Finance, Richard was accepted into the prestigious Culinary Institute of America to become a classically trained Chef and pursue his passion for food. When Richard isn’t working, he travels the country, seeking new culinary experiences from peers and mentors who share his holistic beliefs about food. Richard is a New York Times #1 Best Selling Author from his recipe contribution in The Whole30: The 30-Day Guide to Total Health and Food Freedom.

Family is one of the most important parts of Richard's life, as is his church. He loves spending time with his wife and two beautiful children, and watching his son explore the world. Richard spends as much time as he can outdoors.  Whether he is going for a hike with his dogs to clear his head, or enjoying the “primal hunt” while fishing, the beauty of nature inspires him. 

 

Amy Crites, Chef de Cuisine

As Chef de Cuisine, Chef Amy manages production operations and makes sure that our kitchens meet strict USDA and FDA standards. Every week she creates all of the menus with collaboration from Chef Richard. As a paleo expert, she is in charge of sourcing all of our ingredients. She always goes the extra mile to get the best ingredients to put in our menus, and sources local and organic whenever possible. Chef Amy also heads up our R&D to provide new amazing products to our customers, such as our AIP Marinara. Chef Amy spent the summers on her grandmother’s farm in North Carolina where they would make meals with produce straight from her garden or from fruit and nut trees that they harvested. Family and friends would always stop by and no one ever left with an empty belly. This is where Chef Amy was inspired by how happy a good meal can make someone feel. She studied at Le Cordon Blue in Atlanta and upon graduating rediscovered her passion for Farm to table. When Chef Amy isn’t working, she enjoys going to different farmer’s markets and local farms to not only get the freshest ingredients but to support local businesses as well. She is also a HUGE NASCAR fan and has been since she was born! Chef Amy is also passionate about helping those in need and believes that if we would plant more food bearing trees and bushes as the landscape for new parks and office building, we could cut down on hunger in America and have a free way to provide fresh food to those in need.

 

Corey Laws, Finance Manager

Corey is a pillar here at Pre-Made Paleo and has been with the company since its first year. He takes care of all of our accounting and data analysis so that our company can keep its strong financial footing. Good ‘Ole Rocky Top, home sweet home to me (Corey) – Corey studied in Knoxville, TN at the University of Tennessee, earning his BS in Business Administration. When he isn’t working, Corey enjoys boating, fishing and traveling. Something interesting about Corey is that as the company has grown, so have our needs and he is in his 3rd position at Pre-Made Paleo.
