    Food52 is a leading innovator in the food, cooking and home space with a monthly reach of more than 13 million people. From the beginning, co-founders Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs have disrupted the status quo, building a 360-degree hub combining content, commerce and community around the belief that good food is at the center of a happy life.

    Food52 has been named the best food website by the James Beard Foundation and IACP, one of the "hottest voices on the Internet"​ by AdWeek and, repeatedly, one of the fastest-growing private companies in America by Inc. and one of New York's fastest-growing companies by Crain's.

    In 2018, the brand launched Five Two, its first-ever direct-to-consumer line of products for kitchen, home and life created exclusively with the Food52 community. With Five Two, Food52 is on a mission to reimagine every room in the house — and remake everything in it.
