Food Careers: Episode #2 – Coffee Business Built on Community & Charm

OLDS – My next guest on the Food Careers podcast is Brooke Mierke from Didsbury, Alberta. Brooke is a talented entrepreneur who owns the most exquisite restaurant called, Vintage Coffee Bar. I am fortunate enough to visit this coffee bar often, since it is located in my hometown. How lucky am I? Imagine a crisp farm house style meeting place, where the food is homemade and the coffee is always fresh. Just wait, there’s more and that’s why I was inspired to share this story.

Brooke has big dreams and made them a reality, through research, hard work and building a strong group of supporters. Join us as we walk through this small business owner’s journey to bringing fresh, wholesome, local food to her community. Like most ambitious entrepreneurs, Brooke’s business has grown in popularity rapidly, learning as the restaurant takes shape. In Food Careers episode #2, she shares insights with those who aspire to start their own restaurant business.
