Emily Golub '06
Emily Golub graduated from Washington & Lee in 2006 with a degree in Business Administration and Accounting. Soon after college, Emily joined her family's business, Intimacy as they began their national expansion. Over the course of 5 years, Emily took on the role of National Director of Stores overseeing the opening, training and development of 18 boutique stores across the US. When the company was sold to suppliers, Emily decided to pursue her own business focused on local foods.
In the fall of 2012, Emily founded Garnish & Gather. Garnish & Gather puts together recipe kits - all the raw ingredients needed to cook a gourmet dinner at home, and all the food is sourced from local Atlanta farms and food artisans. Garnish & Gather serves the Atlanta area to support folks coming together around the dinner table to share in a delicious, healthy and local home cooked meals. Garnish & Gather began serving their first customers in June of 2013 and has seen significant month over month growth since it's launch. In the emerging space of grocery delivery & meal kit services, Emily has focused on positioning Garnish & Gather as delivering the best quality ingredients, creative recipes, locally farmed natural foods as well as a resource for clients to feel a part of the local food community.
