Nick Freshman is the founder of Mothersauce Partners, a venture capital funded ecosystem for the food and beverage industry.  Mothersauce Partners aggressively shortens the traditional timeline to achieve profit for food and drink concepts by bringing to bear experience, connections and a suite of services that is largely absent in investing. Nick followed his heart (and stomach) into the restaurant business at a young age. He has spent over 20 years working in a variety of capacities, leading concepts from ideas on paper to thriving businesses. From a top franchise (Five Guys) to a farm-to-table restaurant (Eventide), to a high-volume iconic bar (Spider Kelly’s) and more, Nick has demonstrated success in a range of food and beverage restaurants. His latest project, The Freshman, will be an all-day cocktail and coffee concept opening in early 2020 in National Landing right across from the new Amazon headquarters in northern Virginia.
