Ms. Madison brings over 15 years of entrepreneurial and operational experience to Fireman Capital Partners as an Operating Partner. In 1997, Ms. Madison founded Stacy’s Pita Chip Company, a top selling natural snack food brand. It started with a career change from social work, a strong desire to create delicious healthy food, an entrepreneurial spirit and a small food cart in Boston used to sell pita sandwiches. As an incentive to keep people happily waiting in line, she baked pita chips each day (using extra bread) and gave them away to customers. She then decided to package and start selling the chips to stores. The Company experienced rapid growth and became a top-selling international snack food brand. In 2006, with sales topping $65 million, Stacy’s Pita Chip Company was sold to PepsiCo.
