Mike Adair is the Founder / CEO of a Red’s, a clean label frozen food brand. Mike started Red’s 14 years ago based on his wife’s famous Taco Tuesday dinners and named the company after their beloved dog Red. Red’s is now one of the largest natural frozen food brands in the country and makes delicious, clean label and convenient burritos, breakfast sandwiches and other handheld items.
In addition to his commitment to feeding families like his own, Mike is also passionate about creating a sustainable food chain and advocating for the frozen food industry. With recent advances in technology, he’s seen firsthand how we can deliver high quality ingredients without sacrificing flavor or even using preservatives, while also capturing food at its peak and limiting supply chain waste.
Prior to Red’s Mike had a six-year career in finance at Pioneer Investments. This career started in Boston after attending Boston College and moved him to New York City and Seattle. He also has an MBA from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth, where Red’s was his entrepreneurial class project.
Outside of work, Mike spends his time hiking, fishing, playing cornhole and obsessing over his lawn. This is all in between racing kids to sports activities all over Tennessee. Mike lives in Nashville with his wife Paige and their three kids, daughters Finley (14) and Samantha (13), and son Hunter (10).
