TOUGHEST CHALLENGE: COVID catering three separate businesses overnight. PET PEEVE: Currently: diapers. Generally: fixed viewpoints. SOMEONE YOU ADMIRE: My co-founders and colleagues teach me business lessons regularly; my wife, personal ones. FAVOURITE MEAL: Knowing that I wouldn’t have to deal with the physical consequences: Nashville hot chicken and Texas barbecue.
