Advice Line with Pete Maldonado of Chomps

Former guest Pete Maldonado, co-founder and co-CEO of Chomps, joins Guy for another “Advice Line” edition of HIBT Lab. 

In this episode, we’ll meet Jennifer, a sourdough bagel slinger thinking about taking on ‘big cream cheese.’ Then Brandi, a tea shop owner hoping to bring her blends to big box retailers. And finally, Jake, an Alaska native trying to bring fresh wild salmon to Utah…even if he has to knock on every door north of Salt Lake. 

If you’d like to be featured on a future Advice Line episode, leave us a one minute message that tells us about your business and a specific question you’d like answered. Send a voice memo to or call 1-800-433-1298.

And check out how Pete and his partner Rashid scaled the Chomps brand, from his first appearance on the show last year.

This episode was produced by J.C. Howard with music by Ramtin Arablouei. It was edited by John Isabella. Our audio engineer was Gilly Moon.
