Our Mission

At KiZE our mission, passion, and purpose is “Changing Lives for the Better”. Our founder, Jeff Ragan, created KiZE (sounds like “wise” but with a “K”) from the Japanese word “Kaizen” - meaning “change for the better” or “continuous improvement”.

WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT

At KiZE our mission, passion, and purpose is “Changing Lives for the Better" through food, service, & charity.

KiZE SERVES YOU

By providing you with clean, simple, delicious, truly healthy, real food products that are easy to enjoy and truly energizing and help fuel your best!

KiZE SERVES OTHERS

Our proactive “GIVE FIRST” philosophy is at the heart of all we do. Instead of reactively waiting till we are given to so that then we can go “give back” we aim to proactively “GIVE FIRST” to our community whether it is through feeding the hungry, being a friend to our homeless neighbors, or hiring team members that need a second chance in life.

OUR SECOND CHANCE TEAM

Our facility is a building full of overcomers. Many of our KiZE team members have overcome drug addiction, homelessness and incarceration. We stand with them by giving them a place and purpose to belong, be loved, and grow.
