CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
In speaking with many healthcare workers, including his mother (a former head nurse) and father (a former EMT), Guaricci noticed a common thread – the lack of healthy food options available to healthcare professionals during work hours. Guaricci recognized this as an opportunity to redirect his expertise of the fast-casual hospitality setting into the very deserving hospital setting, as a way to better serve the population that works tirelessly to keep us all healthy day in and day out. This vision has been the driving force behind Root & Sprig. Dan resides in New Jersey with his wife, Erica, and their three daughters, Ava, Emma and Olivia.
