On the Judges Panel
Robin King, along with her husband, Jack, is co-owner of Three Birds Tavern, and creator and owner of Out of the Weeds, the production and distribution company of the all=natural dressings and sauces created in the kitchen of Three Birds Tavern.
Robin and Jack retired from their prior careers in Ohio in 2009 and moved to Florida. In Ohio, Robin raised her son and daughter, Zachary and Mackenzie, and spent the last decade managing Jack's legal practice. Prior to that she had a career in risk management, and spent more than a decade working with the American Heart Association managing big-ticket events, major gift solicitation and grant writing.
Once her children were off to college, and Jack retired, Robin pursued her life-long passion in the creation of food, dining experiences and special events first with Three Birds Tavern. Now Robin is working to expand her mission of offering a higher quality of life for all, starting around dining tables, with delicious, innovative and healthy shared family meals, bringing the versatile, all natural products Out of the Weeds and into your kitchen through the shelves of your favorite grocers. Look for the salad dressing roll-out this fall, and new products introduced in 2016.
