The Anchor Oats traditional hot oatmeal was the inspiration for starting Anchor Oats. The idea for creating an oatmeal company came from a trip on our boat, the Piave, our 102-year-old wooden boat. I created a hearty, healthy oatmeal for breakfast to bring on our boat trip because I couldn’t find anything like it ready-made. My husband said, "Hey, you should sell this". At the same time I was making my own overnight oats everyday to take to work for a filling, healthy breakfast, again because there wasn't anything ready-made in local markets.
After we returned from our boat trip, I decided to bring together my hot oatmeal and overnight oats recipes to create a product line of hot and cold oatmeal products, and Anchor Oats started to take shape.
After about a year of research, planning, hours of Googling, stalking the oatmeal aisles at local Tacoma grocery stores, and graduating from the Spaceworks Business Incubator program, I'm proud and pleased to bring you Anchor Oats.
