James Beard Award Nominee on Making A Cool Culinary Experience

Shannon Healy is the founder and owner of Alley Twenty Six, a staple cocktail bar in downtown Durham. This James Beard Award nominee and restaurant owner shared his journey to creating and sustaining this bar from day 1 to now. We talked about how the bar got its name, the evolution of the food and alcohol scene in downtown Durham, and his North Star – investing in educating his customers and employees while selfishly creating something cool that everyone can feel a part of. If you're a food entrepreneur looking to get creative with crafting the ultimate customer experience, this episode is for you. So pour yourself a drink (non-alcoholic and mocktail options are also valid!) and enjoy the laughs and expertise in this interview.
