There are 11.4MM kids in the US that live in low-income households.
The Holmes Entrepreneur Initiative was founded with a purpose to teach students in underserved communities entrepreneurship through the production and selling of applesauce.
Since 2015, over 5,000 U.S. students have participated in our programming.
Our mission is to teach:
Entrepreneurship as a career
Thinking with an entrepreneurial mindset
Branding and promotions
In addition to teaching the next generation, we vow to help feed the hungry by working with key partners to provide our applesauce products to those in need at little or no cost.
There’s a reason our applesauce is so darn delicious. We use nature’s finest ingredients, with no added sugar and no junk. Crisp apples, juicy pears, tangy cider & sweet cinnamon meld to create a chunky homestyle sauce bursting with fresh-cooked apple taste. It’s applesauce, elevated.
Grandpa Holmes always made food from scratch. One day his grandson Ethan asked him how to make applesauce. Ethan chopped, cooked and experimented until his recipe was perfect. Crisp apples, juicy pears & tangy cider. Chunks of real fruit. And a bright fruit flavor. It’s applesauce, elevated.
There’s an orchard inside every apple. The seeds just need nurturing to thrive. Humans are the same, which is why our company teaches entrepreneurship to students. Our mix of crisp apples, juicy pears, luscious strawberries, sweet peaches & tangy cider elevates our applesauce. And our work uplifts our community.
