As a young girl, founder Lauren’s fondest memories were in the kitchen cooking with her family. When Lauren met her husband Stephen in college, the two of them could often be found cooking in the kitchen for all their friends. Food brings people together around a table, and the two of them love hosting family and friends.
Lauren and Stephen Schwalb came up with the idea to create a health food company that not only offered nutritious and healthy foods, but also tasted good. After a dietary restriction kept them from eating some of their favorite foods, Lauren took to the kitchen to create her own healthy alternatives. As an active family of four, they wanted to eat healthy but didn’t want to sacrifice taste. They wanted healthy alternatives that tasted great, too. Out of that, Ohla! was born!
THE O BEHIND OHLA!
Olivia is joyful, happy and like most to kids she can be a picky eater.
Her favorite way to eat an Ohla! Tortilla is a PB&J roll up.
She is sweet and sassy and has lots of layers - just like a PB&J
THE H BEHIND OHLA!
Hadley is fearless, cheerful and will eat (mostly) anything you give her.
Her favorite way to eat an Ohla! tortilla is with ham & cheese.
She's funny, witty, and can make you giggle with just one look.

THE ! BEHIND OHLA!
Stephen, dad to Olivia and Hadley and husband to Lauren, enjoys boating, golfing and skiing. Lauren might disagree, but he is the real cook of the household.
As the Chief Taste Tester, his favorite thing to do is try everything that comes out of Ohla!'s kitchen to ensure our foods taste great and meet our family's standards and yours.
Stephen's favorite way to eat an Ohla! tortilla is a breakfast taco
“MY GIRLS ARE MY INSPIRATION.
As a mother of two, I want to provide healthy options for my children that taste good too. As the inspiration behind Ohla! Foods, I want to teach my daughters to follow what they believe in.
As a family-owned, women-owned business, I hope to pave the way for their future. From Ohla’s table to yours, we hope you enjoy our products as much as our family.”
