I have focused so much of this storytelling platform on the small food businesses that make up our region. This Kitchen Convo is with the awesome team at First Watch. I walked away from this interview thinking about how lovely it is to hear how big companies still feel small.
The founder of First Watch lives in Florida but is from Cincinnati so this was the first market developed outside of Florida. Now there are more than 350 locations. What a success story!
I met with Lauren, the regional marketing manager, and two of their directors of operations. We chatted about new menus, laughed a ton, ate cinnamon chip pancakes, washed it down with fresh juices and celebrated how rewarding it is to have a job you love and go home to your kids every AFTERNOON!
It made me remember how important these stories are for all of us because isn’t that what we all want – a job that we love that also supports being home with our families more?!
Thank you Lauren, Tonya and Matt for sharing so much goodness with us!
Tune into this week’s episode. Listen to a team of passionate folks who have found a job they love, making food they love, supporting a community they love.
And finally, a deep heartfelt THANK YOU to First Watch for sponsoring Season 3 of Kitchen Convos.Thanks to their willingness to be part of this project, we were able to launch our YouTube channel and pay our producer, who volunteered his time the last two seasons. Maybe that is too much information but when Lauren called and said they’d love to sponsor, my heart literally jumped out of my chest.
