A Heartfelt History The Marimix tradition was sparked by founder Mari Fassett’s childhood love for throwing together simple but brilliantly addicting combinations of breakfast cereals and pantry staples. These snacks became such a calling card for friends and family during every gathering and holiday that Mari was inspired to share her mixes with the world. Marimix was founded in 1993, with Mari fresh out of college and full of entrepreneurial spirit. With no real knowledge of the food industry outside of reminders to “please bring Marimix” to every party, Mari grew the brand from her home kitchen to national distribution through.Over the next two decades, Mari married her college sweetheart, Scott and the Fassetts welcomed three beautiful daughters. While Marimix hummed along as a mail-order staple, nurturing a strong family became the focus.In 2017, Mari survived a ruptured brain aneurysm, an event from which sadly 50% of people never recover. Weighing the facets of her life, Mari realized that the joy of bringing people together to savor old memories and create new ones was too fulfilling a purpose to leave behind. She dove back into Marimix with a full brand refresh; and doubled down on her mission: to reintroduce the Marimix experience in a way that was more clean, more inclusive and ever as craveable.Mari is a 4th generation Japanese-American, and proud to lead a woman-owned family business. The Marimix team is thrilled to share Crunch-Baked Snackmix with you and your customers.
