Chicago Maple was started in 2018 by Chicagoland residents Jared Hunt, Scott Friske, and Derek Friske. Jared and Scott purchased a portion of Lindy Hunt's — Jared's father — organic maple farm in Michigan — Mackinac Bluffs Maple Farms, Inc. — and, as residents of the Chicagoland area, decided to develop a brand that ties their roots in Chicago with their organic maple Farm in Michigan.
While Lindy runs the operations in Michigan, Scott, Jared and Derek are working to spread the word about pure maple products to area residents through partnerships with stores and restaurants, as well as sponsoring pancake breakfast fundraisers to support local schools and community causes. They are passionate about their products and want to share their passion with the Greater Chicago area.
