Ariel has been working in the food industry since the year 2000, when he co-founded,

financed and helped launch Sauces ‘n Love (SnL), a pasta sauce manufacturer

based in Massachusetts. SnL products have won over a dozen awards at the NASFT

Fancy Food Shows, made it to Oprah’s O list, and are now retailed all over the United

States at places such as Whole Foods Markets, Zabar’s, Williams-Sonoma as well

as in Sam’s Club, BJ’s Wholesale Club and Costco to name a few. Prior to founding

Nuchas, Mr. Barbouth also worked for Myllan-Carberrys bakery in Massachusetts

both on the retail side as a turnaround manager for their bakery/cafés and also at

their wholesale production facility as an internal consultant involved with every

single aspect of the operation.

After returning to Argentina for a brief period, and falling in love with fast-casual

restaurants that only sold amazing empanadas, Ariel decided to come back to the

US in 2008 to develop the Nuchas concept. He set up a commissary in Union City

New Jersey to be close to New York City.

In just 2 years, Nuchas went from complete anonymity to being awarded a

much-coveted spot in the middle of Times Square in a very competitive RFP from

Times Square Alliance and DOT. During that same period, Ariel also managed to

secure an SBA guaranteed loan to set up Nuchas Truck operation, which won the

2013 Vendy Award for Rookie of the year and is currently a finalist for this years’

Vendy Cup. In 2013 he opened Nuchas at Greeley Square.

Ariel Holds a BS in Manufacturing Engineering from Boston University, and a Masters

degree in Business Administration with a dual concentration in Innovation

and Technology and International Business from the same institution, where he

was also awarded an Award for Excellence in Academic Achievement. In 2012,

he was named Minority Entrepreneur of the Year by the Small Business Development

Center of New York. This year, the Brooklyn Hispanic Chamber of Commerce

named him Entrepreneur of the year.
