Vice President of Growth
Constance grew up in Kansas and knew Hilary in high school. Upon graduation she headed West and earned a BA in Political Science from the University of California, San Diego. With her high ideals, she headed to Washington, DC to pursue her interest foreign trade. Years later the opportunity to run the family business happily brought her back to her Midwestern roots. Constance understood Hilary’s brilliance and passion for “changing the world one bite at a time” very early on. Healthy eating is a lifestyle for Constance and her family (husband and daughter). “We ate at Local Burger almost every day. I feel like mealtime is a lost art these days, so we place a real value on eating good healthy food together…and Hilary makes that very easy for us to do. When Hilary decided to make a go of this veggie burger thing, my husband and I were one of the first ones to write a check in support of this exciting venture.” Now a few years later it’s a dream come true to put my years of sales, marketing and business ownership experience and skills to work for something that I believe so passionately about.

Creative Director & Brand Manager
A proud Kansas native, creative director Becky Harpstrite grew up in the countryside outside of Wichita. After graduating from the Colorado Institute of Art with a degree in graphic design, Becky moved to Lawrence to study art history at the University of Kansas. After eight years as a graphic designer at KU, Becky took the leap and started her own company. Many Lawrence businesses were blessed with her talents and skill, including Local Burger and Drink Eat Well. Becky and Hilary met in 2007 when Hilary was offering samples of The World's Best Veggie Burgers at KU. Hilary says she will never forget the day their eyes met; it was a really good day.

Carl comes from 5+ years working in organic & natural grocery retail. His love for great food and ingredients comes only second to his passion for eating them. He may not be vegetarian, he may not be gluten-intolerant, but he sure loves his veggie patties. Likes spending time in the park, on his deck, with his friends, with his dog, and sure, with a cold beer.
