Orlando moms deliver the goods

During a neighborhood pool party in 2007, they decided to pursue a business idea, and Wholesome Tummies was born. Gotlib has four children and a marketing background. Blacher has three boys and an MBA. The company they formed now delivers thousands of lunches in dozens of public and private schools in Florida — and in March awarded a franchise to a mom in Atlanta.
