He is a graduate of USF college and has been living and working in Tampa Florida for over 10 years. Working at an Italian Ice company for most of his college years, James has always dreamed of opening up his own business. Not knowing what that would be, but keeping an open mind lead him to one day have a pickle epiphany. Now James is part founder and owner of The Chill Dill. He is glad to be able to share his pickles to everyone out there who loves a great pickle.
