Everyone remembers the best meal they've ever had.
We'd like to be a part of that experience.

We all eat & it would be a sad waste of opportunity to eat badly. - Anna Thomas

Who we are.

Chris Whitehair - Owner

A Rochester, NY native, Chris attended Syracuse University and graduated in 2008 majoring in Film and minoring in Hospitality Management. Early in his career, he worked on numerous feature film projects in addition to serving and managing restaurants. Along with his friend and business partner Benny Howard, Chris co-founded Transmedia Wave in 2010 to focus on his own video productions. In addition, Chris has seven years of professional digital marketing experience.

On June 21st, 2016, Chris decided he was going to start this business (he just didn’t know exactly at the time what it would be!)

On March 17, 2017, Flower City Flavor Company, LLC was incorporated in New York.

On November 25th, 2017, Flower City Flavor Company officially launched!

Inspired by three of his family member’s restaurants, Chris returns to the world of food to keep his family tradition moving forward.
Chris lives with his fiancée Lisa in Fairport. He enjoys watching football, a good adult cocktail, spending time with his four nephews and two nieces and he never misses Sunday brunch at his Grandpa’s house.

Chris' Promise

I am very fortunate that I can own a business that sells luxury, gourmet and speciality food products when there are so many people in this world who go to sleep starving each night. I know how incredibly lucky I am and thus it is my duty to pay it forward and help those who are in need. That is why a portion of my sales will always go to a charitable cause. I will never forget those who came before me that enabled me to have this opportunity and I will use my good fortune to do good in my community and for the world.
