Winding up for the pitch: Freeport-based business to participate in FastPitch

ROCKFORD — Emarc Malavolti and Dean Balbach are ready to take Fresh2Go to the next level.

The Freeport entrepreneurs will pitch their minty-fresh product during two regional competitions in October: the Northern Illinois University EIGERlab FastPitch Competition on Oct. 4 in Rockford, and Freeport Fish Tank on Oct. 26 at The Wagner House downtown.

Fresh2Go has found some success since it started in late 2016. The packages filled with gum, a mint, and a flosser are available at Highland Community College, Joe’s Pizza, Higher Grounds Coffee, This Is It Eatery and other locations, including some Rockford stores. The two hope to reach an even wider audience through the competitions.
