Founder Story


In 2017, Mom and I launched Zesty Z in Brooklyn to build a company around the Mediterranean Diet, our Lebanese culture, and the exciting flavors from the region.

Like most families from the Middle East, we put Za'atar on everything! From breakfast to late-night meals. We encouraged all our friends and neighbors to try it.

​My childhood ​also ​inspires our popcorn. Every Friday night, my sisters and I went to the video rental store - throwback! - and chose movies to watch all together.​ ​

Mom used her air-popping machine to make popcorn and then season it with various Mediterranean toppings instead of butter​.

​Zesty Z is an inclusive brand, and we hope you'll join our family on this global adventure!

All The Zest,

Lorraine & Alexander
