Joel’s story is a one of perseverance. When his brother Jon handed operations of Kodiak Cakes over to him in 1997, Joel was a 23-year-old economics major attending the University of Utah. Over the next 12 years, Joel juggled side jobs, earned an MBA from Oxford University, and he still found time to make Kodiak Cakes a success. Today, Joel runs the company he built around his family’s flapjack recipe in Park City, Utah, where he enjoys spending his free time in the surrounding mountains with friends and family.
