Laura Jhaveri - Killa Bites
ALS and Killa Bites - The Story

One year into operations, Killa Bites is going strong, poised for growth and delighting sweets-lovers far and wide. The Ridgefield-based business is operated by founder Laura Jhaveri and partner Donna Suomi, who create and distribute gourmet popcorn, biscotti and their signature “Cake Bombs.”

The idea for Killa Bites emerged in July of 2011 when Jhaveri’s husband Akhil was diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease). The fast-paced disease turned the family’s world upside-down. Akhil left his job in December of 2012 and Laura searched for a way to support her family.
