True North Granola was started in 2006 by two lifelong educators, Ingrid and Franklin Chrisco. Franklin was a 5th/6th grade teacher for 41 years, and Ingrid retired in 2014 after a career as an English teacher and a middle school principal for 44 years.
Unsatisfied with the taste and quality of the granola options they found in grocery stores, Ingrid and Franklin Chrisco launched True North Granola Company from their home in 2006 while still actively working as educators. Their intent was and remains to create healthy granolas that are never “too sweet,” that are low in carbs, sodium, sugar, and that are rooted in healthy fats.
Based in Brattleboro, Vermont, the Chrisco’s believed that their homemade granola recipes they had been baking for more than 30 years for their family and friends were healthier and better tasting than the alternatives in the grocery store.
