Meet The FlapJacked Team: Derek (Director of Operations)

Meet Derek, our Director of Operations. When he’s not overseeing everything manufacturing, customer service, and logistics, you can find him cruising on his motorcycle, enjoying the outdoors with his wife and kids, or crushing the daily WOD.

Derek and family

If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do?

Buy a house in the mountains.

What's your best FlapJacked memory?

Working my first FlapJacked event, which I believe was the 2014 LA Fit Expo.  I was absolutely blown away at how many customers knew of and loved our product.

Do you have any hobbies or quirky interests?

Motorcycles. I absolutely love riding when I can find the time.

If you were an animal, which animal would you be?

I'd be a bird because of their unique perspective.

What's your favorite way to stay active?

CrossFit. My wife and I started doing it about 3 years ago and absolutely love it.  We stay fit and can do it together.

If you were stuck on an island with only 3 possessions, what would they be?

FlapJacked Mighty Muffins, Protein Pancakes, Protein Cookies!

What's your favorite FlapJacked product? 

Peanut Butter Mighty Muffin. I absolutely LOVE the chunks of peanut butter.

What's your favorite quote?

Strength is never a weakness.

How do you prefer to spend your time outside of work?

Being outside. Spending the day at the pool, hiking, or playing with my kids.

What's your go-to FlapJacked hack? 

Slightly undercook the Mighty Muffins.  Typically about 27 seconds so it's creamy and super moist.

If you could only have one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Cheesy eggs, bacon, and FlapJacked Pancakes.
