THE PFEFFER & FROST TEAM
Elli has always had a sweet tooth, and having grown up in Dresden, design is practically second nature for her. That’s why, luckily, it was easy for Til and Jannik to persuade Elli to co-found Pfeffer & Frost with them. The aim was nothing less than to modernise the Elisen-Lebkuchen, Nuremberg’s famous flagship product! By now, Elli is a partner, visionary and mastermind behind almost everything that Pfeffer & Frost is as a brand. With endless creativity and perfectionism, she constantly produces new ideas and products, each of them a small contribution to making the world a better place. She loves good coffee and food, interesting conversations, and is always looking for inspiration.
CO-FOUNDER & DESIGN
A man of ideas: It was media designer Hannes who, many moons ago, persuaded Elli to co-found a design agency. And in their office in 2018, the new idea conceived by Jannik and Til was not only given a face, but also its name: Pfeffer & Frost. As an indoor rower, Hannes understands the importance of stamina and perseverance. His personal motto is „Be relaxed about stress“ – and those around him benefit from this, as he creates a fun working atmosphere every day.
CO-FOUNDER & DESIGN
Chrissi was already a team member when our company was still in its embryonic stage – she gave feedback, tasted our Lebkuchen, and helped us package them in true start-up spirit. Chrissi loves to maintain a healthy balance of enjoying food, fasting retreats and physical activity, as staying connected to her body is particularly important to her – no strict rules, just following her gut instincts. She knows that, if you’re enjoying what you’re doing and being appreciated for it, it never really feels like “work”. At Pfeffer & Frost, she is in charge of distribution and communication for our sustainable food and team event boxes.
What would a company be without a CEO and all-rounder? Jannik is able to quickly spread his enthusiasm for new projects to other people, and his current mission is to make the world a little better with sustainable and delicious food boxes. Pfeffer & Frost gives him the opportunity to keep growing as a person, while always acting in alignment with his values of fairness and mindfulness.
CO-FOUNDER & MANAGER
Til is a co-founder of Pfeffer & Frost. Although his childhood dream of programming robots didn’t quite come true, he’s kept his enthusiasm for technology alive. He is a passionate cyclist and loves his home city of Nuremberg just as much as travelling to other countries. At Pfeffer & Frost, Til is in charge of automating shipping processes and running our online shop. Cheers to Til for every parcel successfully delivered!
