What is the “Local Flavor?”
…There’s a small but ever growing revolution taking place in cities and towns across the nation. People are taking the country back from the big box corporate chain mentality that has become the norm in recent years. With job security and career happiness at an all time low, people are taking to the streets literally in droves. They can be found in food trucks and trailers, at farmer’s markets, and in pedi-cabs. They are do-it-yourselfers. They are independent-minded. They run Mom & Pop make-shift shops. They are local-minded freelancers of all sorts and while some still maintain their 9-5’s, many more do a multitude of things to get by. They are inspiring, innovative, and infinitely interesting and their businesses make up the real flavor of a community.
They love what they do and do what they love.
They are the Local Flavor.
