If Sadrah is the visionary at No Evil Foods, Mike is the architect. Mike stands quiet and thoughtful (at his standing desk!) at the helm of a company whose fast-paced growth trajectory is actually hurtling through space at breakneck speed. Behind the scenes, Mike sketches the big picture, turning vision into reality. His plant-based journey began as a simple experiment, but became much more–not only a passion, but an opportunity to help drive positive change in the world. From a small DIY outfit that sold at local farmers markets, his determination helped grow No Evil Foods into a bonafide company with nationwide distribution and expansive production capabilities.
With every notch in a company’s growth, there’s an individual in the office with whole a lot of spreadsheets, and a few more gray hairs…or no hair at all! At No Evil Foods, that person is Mike Woliansky, our wizard behind the curtain.
Before the days of Plant Meat, Mike had a career in music, including performing and tour/band management from dirty basements to 10,000 seat arenas—screaming all along the way. It was here that he learned resourcefulness in the face of great odds against success, and experienced nearly every aspect of entrepreneurship and business management imaginable. He also spent time as a freelance writer, and cut his teeth in the food world at four star restaurants like The Dining Room at the Inn on Biltmore Estate.
Mike graduated from Penn State University with a BA in English and Minor in Business.
