Today’s guest runs a donut empire with his family and friends. Well… maybe not an empire, per se, but they are definitely getting there. A few years ago they started up a small donut shop in the Exchange, and they could not keep up with the market’s insatiable demand for tasty donuts. They consistently had lines running out the door and around the block. I hope you enjoy our chat!
Today’s guest used to work in the propane business. It’s more fascinating than you’d expect. Since then, though, he’s opened several of Winnipeg’s most popular and unique restaurants. He is both passionate and calculated when it comes to the business of food, and that shines through in our conversation. I hope you enjoy it!
