It’s the third episode of Hungry Grl Big Podcast (can you believe it?!) and I’m sitting down with no one other than Lauren Townsend, co-founder of Millie’s and quite honestly one of THE sweetest people you will ever meet…. live from Millie’s new headquarters! We’re talking about the birth of Millie’s, how the ice cream empire grew to what it is today, and how Lauren balanced starting a company, working a full-time 9-5 job while doing so, and how her and Chad (her husband) started a family in the midst of it all. This is a story not-to-miss, and if you get hungry while listening, be sure to follow their drool-worthy IG st @milliespgh!

Jessica Iacullo, What started as “just” an Instagram page to pass the time during my college days has boomed into my full-time job working with brands like Cosmopolitan Magazine, Kraft Heinz, Forbes, Jets, Boars Head, Baked By Melissa, Business Insider, various Food Network Chefs, Citi Bank, US Open, McDonald’s, Love Your Melon, Her Campus, and Little Words Project… just to name a few. In the years since I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh, came back to NYC, and have since returned to the 412, I have also developed my journalistic skills for both my website and outside publications as well as creating a newsletter that I can call my own.But at the end of the day, I’m just a girl that likes to eat and tell other people about it.
