Who We Are & Mission Statement

Our Mission Statement
We are committed to nourishing the mind, body and spirit by providing products that are environmentally sustainable, socially responsible and (when available) locally produced.  We strive to create superior customer service in a comfortable, fun and friendly atmosphere.  We endeavor to educate ourselves and our customers about food, its nutritional value and means of preparation. Additionally, we are challenged to convey the purchasing power that we, as individuals have on the political/economic climate and the environment. We support our community through donations, discounts and involvement in local organizations.  We make every effort to select associates who reflect our beliefs in the holistic approach to sustenance, sustainability and service.  We attempt to create a work environment that enhances personal growth, creativity and happiness while providing a respectable means of living for our employees.

Andy Keal, Owner
In 2006 Andy became a partner of Nori’s after fully coming to the realization that the health food business was really his true passion. Working around good food and fun people is a passion of his and has found Nori’s, a downtown business in a fabulous town, to be the perfect match. Andy lives in Saranac Lake with his wife and their two children. At Nori's Andy has become the office manager while he maintains the computer system and oversees general maintenance. 

Ashley Tempo, Owner
Ashley has been cooking for Nori’s for over six years. Originally from western Pennsylvania, Ashley has made Saranac Lake her new home. She’s lived in different cities across the country working different food related jobs to broaden her knowledge of food. From learning to cook in a pub, to making pizza in Brooklyn, preparing high-end vegan raw food in New York City, working a bakery position in Pittsburgh, playing barista in California and ‘slingin’ juices in Portland, Oregon. She’s happy to be an owner for a small local business making food that she can really stand behind for the community that she loves. Having high-quality food and love of the outdoors as equally important passions, Saranac Lake and Nori’s are the perfect fit for this traveled cook.

Julie Fischer, Store Manager
Julie has been in the Adirondacks since 1993 and began working at Nori’s in 2003.  She is a graduate of Paul Smith’s College from the Hotel & Restaurant Management program.  Julie has served in fine-dining establishments, cooked professionally, bartended and has even “done a little time” in the world of wine & spirit sales.  Because of her love of food, cheese & wine, she is often called upon by her customers for various recommendations and preparations.  As our health & beauty aid buyer, Julie knows what you put on your body is just as important as what you put in your body.  Julie continues to educate herself and her customers about the origins of our food, sustainability and the greater awareness we must all strive for in our nourishment. When she’s not at the store harassing staff (and customers alike!) Julie hides out in the woods of Lake Clear with her husband Adam, her son and her black lab.
