Prior to starting Rise & Shine, Owner Sean Heyman worked 18 hour days on film and commercial production. In doing so, he often felt much improvement could be made on the breakfasts served. - always keeping in mind that he could do better - but for now happy to be working in production.

Soon enough, Sean found himself with two young kids to raise. He could no longer be "on-location" , so he took a leap of entrepreneurial faith and started Rise & Shine Breakfast Catering, serving delicious breakfasts for film crews and corporations.
