Shannon Payette Seip & Kelly Parthen, Bean Sprouts
Bean Sprouts, co-founded by Shannon Seip and Junior League member Kelly Parthen, is the nation’s leading hip and healthy kids’ café and cooking school concept. Since the opening of its first café, Bean Sprouts has twice been ranked in the “Top 100 Movers and Shakers” in the restaurant industry for its family-focused, yummy, good-for-you approach.
Bean Sprouts Café not only provides fresh, wholesome food for kids and adults, but is one of the only places in the country to serve organic baby food on its menu. At Bean Sprouts Cooking School, popular cooking classes offer a hands-on, silly, and imaginative culinary experience for children as young as two.
Bean Sprouts is rapidly expanding to future locations near prominent family destinations across the country. Bean Sprouts’ flagship location is inside the Seattle Center, home to the Space Needle, Seattle Children’s Museum, Pacific Science Center and much more.
Bean Sprouts’ debut kids’ cookbook, Bean Appétit: Hip & Healthy Ways to Have Fun with Food (Andrews McMeel, 2010), has received rave reviews in national media outlets, including Good Morning America, The Today Show, Martha Stewart Living Radio, Everyday with Rachael Ray, and Parents magazines.
