Why do you think people gravitate toward Corner Perk Brunch Cafe to do work? We have worked hard to create a comfortable environment for everyone. Our mission statement is, “Serving artfully crafted goodness to our family, friends, and neighbors.” We must live up to that and make each guest feel right at home before stepping through our doors. We want Corner Perk Brunch Cafe to be warm and inviting. But we also try to make each place creative and inspiring to assist with workflow. This place keeps you moving: the music, the people and all the different flowing parts of it. I also think that when you’re in a brunch cafe, you can be inspired by the other people around you.
As a successful business owner, why do you think networking is important? My favorite things about networking are meeting and getting to know people from all different walks of life. I’ve learned the more you get to know others, the more you know about yourself. The more you get to know each other, the more you see things from a different perspective. There’s always a learning aspect; it’s not just about building your brand or reputation. There are always crossovers; whenever I meet someone new, I walk away with more knowledge and interest in a subject.
