Loyal to the Soil is a local startup focused on bringing local product suppliers together with local retailers in an efficient and cost-effective manner.

Founded by locals Rachel Malloy and Jim Malloy, owners and founders of Bunky Boutique, Chris Nieto, founder of Merzproject Architects, and Alan Lobock, co-founder of SkyMall, Loyal to the Soil was selected by SEED SPOT as one of its 16 ventures, out of 191 ventures that applied for the incubator’s inaugural class.

Loyal to the Soil is a web-based platform connecting those designing, manufacturing, and wholesaling Arizona products with those Arizona merchants retailing the products.
By facilitating and strengthening relationships between Arizona wholesalers and retailers, Loyal to the Soil will increase exposure for the talent of the Arizona design and manufacturing communities, save time and money for Arizona retailers, and strengthen the Arizona economy.
