Sopo Tchoup – Out to Lunch – It’s New Orleans
Every time a new mobile device comes out we can put more stuff on it. These days we don’t need to carry a calendar, phone book, yellow pad, book, map, magazine, music player, camera, DVD player, laptop, or even a heart monitor. So what, exactly, are we putting in these bags and backpacks we all lug around? Somebody who knows the answer to that is Patti Dunn.
Patti’s New Orleans company, Tchoup Industries, makes bags and back packs.
If you have the right font on your device, Sopo has two dots over the “o’s” like Motorhead and Motley Crue. But SOPO is not a band, it’s the name of a store on a retail-challenged stretch of Carrollton Avenue where they sell Tchoup bags and other New Orleans made artisan products.
Robin Borne from SOPO joins Peter on this edition of Out to Lunch.
In the entrepreneur segment of the show, Peter introduces Crutcher Reiss and his startup biz, My Mix Nutrition. Hear a longer conversation with Crutcher, Peter, Robin, and Patti, here.
