FAU student’s Bacon Boxes on Inc’s Coolest College Startup list

Florida Atlantic University student’s Logan Rae and Kimberly Hruda have landed a spot on Inc. Magazine’s Coolest College Startups list with their delectable business startup Bacon Boxes.


Logan Rae, a neuroscience student, made a bacon bouquet resembling roses for a friend’s birthday; that’s when she realized she was onto something innovative and original. Hruda, another FAU student had met Rae through friends, she also recognized the business potential of the bacon bouquets and decided to join forces with Rae and the two quickly became business partners. The two FAU students worked very hard to get their bacon bouquets on the market before Valentine’s day.  A task that required over 100 hours of work per week.

One year later, the company relocated to an industrial kitchen in Boca Raton. Bacon Boxe’s signature product, the Bacon Bouquet are all crafted using high quality ingredients that are free of hormones, steroids, and antibiotics. Boxes ship nationwide and come in an assortment of flavors.
