Tony Antoci – CEO
When Josephine and I bought Erewhon, I really had no idea what exactly we were getting ourselves into. We set out to buy a market. That’s all we were looking to do. But as I’ve come to learn, Erewhon is so much more than that. And we are not just store owners. We now have the huge responsibility of ensuring the future of one of the most remarkable places in all of Los Angeles.
Erewhon is an oasis – a haven of pure, clean, nutrient-rich foods and products that change the lives of the people who shop here. What we offer is made with great care and love, and with respect for the wellbeing of our customers and our planet. While it is a business and we must make a profit that is not our primary goal. Profit is the side effect of our real purpose which is to be of the greatest service by maintaining the highest standards in the marketplace.
Over the next few years, we will grow and expand, open new stores, create exciting new products, and reach out into our community to provide guidance and education on how to eat and live well. As we do this our every decision will be informed by our mission to provide only the best the earth has to offer.
Josephine Antoci – President

I want the atmosphere in the store to be one that makes you feel completely welcome and we are working hard to make you feel valued. We want you to know that we care about you and we are doing our utmost to be of service. We have a remarkable range of items that are excellent for you. Come visit and let us add some health and happiness to your life.

Jason Widener – Vice President
At Erewhon, we see life as a journey and have always embraced a holistic philosophy of living. We believe we must never stop learning, so are always looking for innovative brands, thought leaders and wellness seekers to join us on this amazing journey. At Erewhon, there is a a true reverence for nature, ancient traditions and spirituality. This is what brought me to Erewhon in 2010. I started at the Tonic Bar, just for the chance to be taught by Truth Calkins and Dragon Herbs. Even today, you will often find me behind the bar, as excited about formulating and mixing as I was all those years ago. It is passion has helped to build the Erewhon community for the past fifty years and supported the growth of the company—all while making sure we stay true to our core values. We are firm believers in living a life of service and I am honored to have helped countless brands launch at Erewhon and even more individuals find their purpose.
