Have you always run your current business?
After recently graduating college, I decided there was no better time than when I’m 22 to start a business and follow my dream. I didn’t know my dream was to make liège waffles, but I absolutely love it now.
What’s your favorite or least favorite vegetable?
Nothing beats a simple roasted carrot with some thyme and balsamic.
What’s your favorite thing to get from other vendors at the market?
I’m a sucker for all pastries, especially scones!
What question do you wish people would ask you at the market?
What’s the difference between a “Liège” and “Belgian” waffle? About $5 and 2 days.
Do you have a favorite market memory?
I worked with the sister of Rise last summer at Fulton and nothing beat seeing the customers faces light up when they saw the big baskets of bagels.
What’s the best advice you’ve gotten about your business?
Don’t be afraid of competition. It’s what keeps you moving and evolving.
If you could have any superpower, what would it be, and why?
I hate to admit this but I’m a huge eavesdropper, so the power of invisibility would be pretty helpful for that.
What do you do when you’re not doing work for your business?
I work at LeMond Bicycles in Minneapolis when I’m not sitting in front of the mixer making waffles.
