IT TAKES A VILLAGE

Start-ups are like babies: messy, constant attention, unpredictable—and one of the greatest loves of your life. It takes many people, focus, dedication, and coffee. Lots of it.

Patrick has direct experience in creating his own start-up: Pulp Kitchen Juice Co. with the help of many people, including his partner Barbara Lucchese.

Patrick Simone, Founder

A natural born foodie, his entire life has been focused on exploring different foods and creating delicious meals. He had a wonderful opportunity to train and work in Paris, France and Boston. Patrick was raised by 2 loving parents who were an engineer and Harvard professor. This instilled in him a strong passion for helping people and finding creative solutions to issues that would normally stop others from achieving their goals. He explored this passion of connecting people as a physician recruiter in Connecticut. Then one day, he decided to start his own juice company: and the rest was history.  Within a few years he decided to take it to another level and help others navigate the intense and complicated in-and-outs of the food and beverage industry. 

The knowledge of starting a business, and all the care and time that it takes to develop strong business connections are a process that take time and care.  The fees charged are a reflection of all that cumulative experience.  What may take a novice hours, days or months to achieve, a professional can do in minutes; because it took many hours, days and months to develop. With that said, teamwork makes the dream work- and CCS,LLC. is made up of a great team:
