Does Emma from Selling Sunset have an empanada business?

During Selling Sunset season 4, episode 3, Emma told the group about how she managed to launch her vegan food business.

The Netflix star grew up in a small town south of Boston. Now, she splits her time between Boston and Los Angeles as her food manufacturing facility is based in Boston.

Emma started out in business by investing in the stock market when she was 14 or 15 years old.

She said: “When my grandfather passed away we had a food company. It was really small, so I lent my family money at 17 years old for payroll to get the company going.”

Today, that company is a national brand – Yankee Trader Seafood. Emma wanted to start her own line which is vegan and she’s partnered with other companies such as Beyond Meat.

Speaking on Selling Sunset, Emma said: “I’m meeting at Costco, Whole Foods with CEOs and they want real estate, too. So, it goes hand-in-hand.”
