The Bread Spread Podcast:
Local businesses are an integral part of our daily lives. We see the barista in our local coffee shop more than we see our immediate family. These businesses are an important part in our daily routines.
In this podcast we get to know the entrepreneurs who gave up everything to be part of our community and hear their stories.
Not one to shy away from a challenge, we speak with Lisa Sanguedolce of Le Dolci Bakery & Culinary Classroom and her new venture, The Lactation Cookie Company. We hear what inspires Lisa and how she maintains her ‘Yes, I can!’ attitude.
Overcoming challenges is part of Len Senater’s character. We hear how The Depanneur began, what inspired the concept and how it continues to evolve as a community hub for connection, food and coming together.
In business for over 30 years, we speak with Pete Neal of Neal Brothers. He shares how it all started and what continues to drive him professionally and personally, with purpose.
