Saugus native Nick Raccuia is on a mission to develop high quality and great tasting snacks for Ketogenic and low-carb diets.

Raccuia, 30, is a 2008 graduate of Pope John XXIII High School in Everett. He attended Suffolk University and received a graduate degree in Accounting. He became a CPA and worked at a large public accounting firm and later at Fidelity.
