Who We Are

Pursuit of Loaf isn't just a catchy phrase, it's a lifestyle born from the desire to achieve something greater. Our founder and Breaditor-in-Chief Zach began the pursuit in 2016 and has warmly welcomed friends, family, and fanatics into the shared striving for sourdough. Join us, you won't regret it.

Zach lives in Ann Arbor, MI, and spends any of his time not in class DREAMING of the next adventure! A lover of Loaf to the core, he enjoys spreading the Loaf almost as much as he loves the Pursuit of it.

What does Loaf mean to you? 

"Loaf to me means a true belief in the promise of reaching your goals, whatever they may be, and a knowledge that the Pursuit of Loaf requires sacrifices. The biggest part of Loaf is making sure that you take the time to acknowledge and enjoy what you have achieved, and not get caught up in the ever-demanding pace of life. Relax! Loaves abound!"

Katie, 26, lives in San Francisco, CA, and takes advantage of all the outdoor adventures California has to offer. After years of hearing her brother talking about Loaf, she enthusiastically joined the team to help build the website and create t shirt designs. 

What does Loaf mean to you? 

"I have always thought of loaf as the feeling you get when you reach the top of the mountain after a long hike. It is a feeling of pure joy and pride because you know you worked hard to achieve something. I don't think that Loaf is something that comes every day, you have to earn a loaf moment by challenging yourself and trying new things."

Alex has been so busy pursuing loaf that he hasn't had time to write a bio. 

What does Loaf mean to you? 

"Can't talk now, busy getting bread."

Mark, 26, was born and raised in Michigan but now calls the Rocky Mountains home. In his free time, he pursues loaf by snowboarding and cycling (he just biked across the country!!). Although his specific position is still unclear, you could say that he adds a certain je ne sais quoi to the Loaf team that keeps our bread fresh. 

What does Loaf mean to you? 

"The Pursuit of Loaf to me is all about not settling in life and continuing to search for my purpose by trying new things, seeing new places, and meeting new people!  I pursue Loaf by constantly looking for the next challenge or adventure to help me grow stronger mentally and physically."

Ben, who lives in Denver, CO, graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill in 2019 with a degree in Business Communications and Entrepreneurship. He has been a member of the loaf team for a few years now and primarily works marketing for the company. 

What does Loaf mean to you?

"To me, Loaf is making the most of every day and pursuing whatever it is that makes you happy in life. Whether it’s exploring the great outdoors or spending time with the people that make you happy, Pursuit of Loaf has been a huge part of my life and I can’t wait to share that with y’all!"
