"Noah Munro is a rising star in small business development and marketing." - Sheila Oranch, Owner Coppertoppe Inn & Retreat Center

As an entrepreneur with over a decade of experience growing a specialty food business, Noah Munro has developed expertise in what it takes to build a profitable food business.

In early 2006, Munro co-founded The Mill Fudge Factory & Ice Cream Cafe, headquartered in Bristol, New Hampshire. As the General Manager, Munro drove the growth of the company from an idea into a well-run profitable food business with over 10 employees and steady annual revenue growth. Munro was also responsible for selling over $400,000 of fudge online, shipping to every state in the United States.

The Mill Fudge Factory was recognized as one of the top 3 fudge companies in America by MSN.com, one of the top 5 fudge shops in America by “Cooking with Paula Deen” magazine, and was chosen by “New Hampshire” magazine as the Best Fudge in New Hampshire.

Munro has primarily grown sales by building and leveraging a loyal brand community of over 15,000 people using SEO, email marketing, and social media. You can follow The Fudge Factory’s digital communications by email, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

With the development of an excellent team to manage much of the business operation, Munro has turned his attention towards helping other specialty food business owners build strong brands and profitable companies. He’s still working to continue to grow The Mill Fudge Factory, but now puts his focus on working with other business owners to pursue their dreams as a specialty food business consultant.

In 2012, Munro attended Babson College, the #1 school for Entrepreneurship in the US, where he earned a Masters in Business Administration, magna cum laude.
The academic tools he acquired combined with his real-world entrepreneurial
food business experience provide him with a uniquely valuable perspective.

Munro also holds a Bachelors of Arts in Environmental Policy from Green Mountain College and worked for five years as a Digital Marketing consultant for the Newfound Lake Region Association.

Munro is also Inbound Certified by the Hubspot Academy. If you are looking for a true industry expert for food business coaching, Noah Munro is an excellent candidate!
