After Steve Gonzalez and Scott Ketchum couldn't find a space for a restaurant, they made a pasta pivot. Instead of serving artisanal pastas, they would now make them out a factory in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Six years after founding Sfoglini Pasta, the entrepreneurs had experienced such great demand for their products, they needed to find a new facility. The company's new factory is almost 10 times bigger than its original one.
