Founder Chris McMurray came-up with the idea for Mac & Son while he was making a typical store-bought Mac & Cheese for his young son. He looked at what he was making and asked “Why does Mac & Cheese from a package look & taste so much less appealing than the Mac & Cheese I can make from scratch or order from restaurant?” After looking at the ingredients list & doing a little research, the answer was apparent…there’s no recipe. There's nothing in the mix that will create a proper sauce. It’s just a box of industrial ingredients, no matter what brand one uses. Chris’ approach is different. He starts with an authentic recipe for great Mac & Cheese and found a way to make it easy to store & prepare at home.
