Todd Spanier founded King of Mushrooms in 1996. His passion for mushrooms and wild foods is derived from a close bond he shared with both of his Grandfathers, who frequently brought him mushroom hunting and foraging as a young man. Todd began hunting on his own, and would eventually begin selling mushrooms to many of San Francisco's top restaurants while still in high school. Todd's passion has grown exponentially over the years, and his company has developed into a top sustainable wild food purveyor in the San Francisco Bay Area. Todd's network of family, friends, and fungaioli(mushroom hunters) is what makes King of Mushrooms what it is today.
