First Love, Then Business
Starting a new business is tough enough, but when your business partner is also your new romantic partner, it gets doubly complicated. In this week’s profile, I looked at how the founders of vegan food company, Chickpea & Olive, met while working for one restaurant, decided they were meant for each other and then stepped out on their own, together.
Who are the principals in your partnership and what is the name of your company?
My name is Danielle Ricciardi and my partner’s name is Daniel Strong. Our vegan company, Chickpea & Olive, serves local fare at food markets and events.
How did your partnership start?
We met in 2010 at Dell'Anima in Manhattan. Daniel was a sous chef and I was working as a bartender and server. We started dating in the winter 2011 and by the summer of that year Dan had quit his job at one of NYC’s hottest restaurants and we were on our way trying to figure out what exactly we were doing. And that is how Chickpea & Olive was born!

Gothamist named our Phatty Beetball Parm one of the 25 best things they ate and drank in 2013. so what are you waiting for???
"Phatty Beetball Parm Sandwich at Chickpea and Olive: Nestled in the hustle and bustle of the sprawling new indoor Smorgasburg and Brooklyn Flea in Williamsburg you'll find, if you look for it, an unassuming little booth with hardly any hype serving a vegan parm hero that defies expectations. Chickpea and Olive's "Phatty Beetball Parm Sandwich" is yet another indisputable reminder that vegan food can hold its own and sometimes even transcend carnivorous, cheesy alternatives.
Daniel Strong, formerly of Dell'Anima, makes it with Barry's Tempeh, breadcrumbs, beets, some "very simple" marinara from Shushan Valley Farms tomatoes and a subtle dusting of Daiya mozzarella. It served on a toasted baguette from Sullivan Street Bakery, and made to order in small sizes (one beetball) and large (two beetballs) for $5 and $9, respectively. Chickpea and Olive also sells the beetballs "nude" for $3 each or two for $5, and if you want to go crazy you can get them served on top of a bowl of polenta topped off with fresh sauce and a splash of garlic oil. I've only had the sandwich, and it was delicious." John Del Signore of Gothamist
