Do You Know The Muffin Man Who Lives On Drury Lane?

Here’s more about The Muffin Man, Thaddeus Pinckney in Schenectady, NY.  How did we get started?

Thaddeus Pinckney, a.k.a. The Muffin Man, is a very bright and happy fellow that founded Luvins Muffins in Cohoes, NY, in May of 2001 using his food science skills from obtaining a B.S. in Food Science from Rutgers University (NJ) and his business skills from getting a MBA in Marketing at The University at Albany (SUNY-Albany).  While growing up in Plainfield, New Jersey, Thad tried to create a new product for the huge amounts of blueberries grown in Southern NJ each year and began the creation of an all-natural blueberry beverage. Unfortunately, after many attempts at making a premium beverage, Thad finally realized that the costs associated with an all-natural blueberry beverage were far too great, leaving him stuck with bags and bags of blueberries in his mother’s freezer.  After sleepless nights of drinking too much Kool-Aid, Thad thought of putting the blueberries into muffins and the rest is history.  Soon, Thad became the Muffin Man and began to make and send muffins to supermarkets and prisons.

Luvins Muffins is now a 501c3 nonprofit organization that raises funds to give muffins smiles, cheer, and goodwill to local charities.   Every time you purchase a muffin, The Muffin Man gives a muffin to a charity.
