“SJF has been a tremendous asset to Rustic Crust. From the time of their initial investment to our most recent round of financing, SJF has proven to be a true partner. The experience that SJF has brought to the board room and the support they have shown the company has been an important element for achieving the level of success that we are currently experiencing. They have proven to be an invaluable asset as we raised additional capital, explored acquisitions, hired additional management, and have grown the company.”
