FROM A PASSION TO A BUSINESS WITH IMPACT

Our founder Emily Griffith launched Lil Bucks in May 2018 at a fitness festival in Chicago. She simply had an obsession with crunchy sprouted buckwheat seeds, which she discovered while living in Australia. Fast forward 1.5 years, and Lil Bucks is, for the first time ever, going into wider distribution in the Midwest. The vision to build a sustainable buckwheat brand that has measurable impact on our soil health in North America is ONE BIG STEP CLOSER to a reality! 

ABOUT THE GIG:

After 1.5 years spreading the buckwheat love mostly as a one-woman show (officially – we wouldn’t be anywhere without our fans!), Lil Bucks needs enthusiastic wellness nuts to help spread the love of these seeds! What we’ve found works best to introduce this new superfood are: demos in stores, samplings and events at fitness and yoga studios, WeWork samplings, in-person nutrition workshops (or build-your-own acai bowl events, yum!) and more! We like to get creative to keep it interesting.¬†

Since we all can’t be everywhere at once, we are looking for brand ambassadors to take their cities by storm with Lil Bucks!

Lil Bucks Brand Ambassadors represent our brand and embody our core mission: help humans achieve their collective potential and joy by eating nutritious, REAL food, loving Mother Nature and spreading good vibes. They are vibrant, active, positive and embrace every day. 

As a Lil Bucks Brand Ambassador, you will be responsible for driving brand awareness through strategic local events, samplings at wellness studios and retail outlets, in-store demo’s and influencer seeding opportunities to create a personal connection with the consumer. THIS IS AN EXTREMELY IMPORTANT JOB!

If you are interested in the wellness world, the food industry, or just want to spread the word about a brand you’re passionate about, this is an incredibly fun learning opportunity.¬†
