Next up, Jeff interviews Mary Lou Palazzolo, inventor and owner of Pranzo Bags, a reusable lunch tote that keeps food, beverages and more cold on the go when refrigeration is not available.

Mary Lou invented the Pranzo Bag because she could not find a suitable lunch bag that appealed to her or had the features she was looking for… so she created her own!

During the interview, Palazzolo discusses:

  • How she developed the concept for Pranzo Bags
  • The eco-friendly elements of the Pranzo Bag
  • Taking her idea from concept to manufacturer
  • Her crowdfunding campaign, now live on Indiegogo
