You Betcha Kimchi was started by Iman Mefleh and Joe Silberschmidt, two aspiring farmers, in the fall of 2013. The vision was to make a tasty Minnesota take on kimchi using all local, organic vegetables. We began by chopping cabbage in the laughably little kitchen of our apartment and raising the eyebrows of our neighbors with kimchi’s formidable aroma during its fermentation. You Betcha Kimchi is now available in over 30 stores in 6 states as well as being featured in several restaurants, food trucks, and Twin Cities farmers markets. Iman and Joe opened their own shared commercial kitchen, Seward Makes, in summer of 2019 where You Betcha Kimchi continues to pursue their missions of partnering with local, organic farmers and getting a healthy and delicious product on more and more local plates. We are proud of our product and hand-make each batch ourselves.
