More to come in Spring 2020!

We're in the process of building our core infrastructure and making our first facility & restaurant purchases. If you know a food business owner who would like to retire in the next 5 years, I'd love to interview them!

About the founder of Sculry:

Christopher Whitson


I founded Sculry to take advantage of inefficiencies and missed opportunities in the food market. I have a unique take on the industry thanks to eclectic perspectives & experiences.

  • Increased margins; includes making non-profitable operations (like loss-leaders) profitable
  • Grow customer loyalty and satisfaction (my 2nd favorite goal to achieve)
  • Enhance employee morale, buy-in, & responsibility for success (my favorite goal)
  • Make a difference in people's lives (check out the moonshot startup I founded that worked in healthcare, maritime, nuclear, hospitality, and tech...all at the same time!)
  • Have fun and love what I do.

I attribute success to people. It's always people. It's what drives ROI...not tax efficiency, or interest rates, or vendor pricing. Great customers literally pay for the investor multiple. Well-trained & respected employees convince the customer to pay that multiple time after time. Take care of the people! It's not rocket science.


Career profile
Visit my LinkedIn page to get an overview of my history of experiences and roles. There are so many things I've enjoyed doing: non-profits, consulting, food, hospitality, tech, software development...it's all there. If you have questions, just ask!
Other people
Sometimes it's hard to tell if a bio is giving you BS or not. If you visit my Angel List profile you'll be able to see what others thought about my risky startup work. I think it's a good way to gauge someone when you see how they conduct themselves while doing things with a high possibility of failure.
In a nutshell
I'm a dad of 3 boys, a husband of 14 years, a stock investor since my teens, world traveler, ocean sailor, .NET developer, a happy miser, lover of long distance ocean swimming, and wildy judgemental. If you don't mind snarky takes, dirty words, progressive politics, and the like...I'm on Twitter and you can initiate a stalking campaign or start a convo with me there.
