Fathers, Sons & The Family Business
On this week’s show, we meet fathers and sons who are working together to make business work across generations. We begin with Baumer Foods, the third-generation company that makes Crystal Hot Sauce. Al Jr. and his son “Pepper” explain how in their family business, there are no shortcuts to the top.
Then, we visit father-son duo Carlos and Will Avelar at their family business, Mawi Tortilleria in Metairie. Will was a rising star in the culinary world when he and his father decided to join forces to provide fresh, authentic corn tortillas to the New Orleans community.
Finally, Dickie Brennan Jr. reminisces about his late father, Dick Brennan, Sr., who invented the iconic jazz brunch at Commander’s Palace.
