Ever thought of turning a bus into a wood-fired pizza truck? Join us as we chat with Bart J. Wydllich from Artisan Fire Wood Specialties, who shares his journey into this unique venture. We reminisce about our shared roots in Pittston and the places we’ve called home, from Old Forge to Kingston. Bart also opens up about his heartwarming dedication to the Challenger League, a baseball league for children with disabilities, and the joy of potentially guest announcing at their games.

What are the real highs and lows of working in the restaurant industry? From learning bartending on the fly to dealing with managerial conflicts, we share personal stories about the challenges and rewards of restaurant life. We also discuss broader issues facing the industry today, such as the rising cost of food and the difficulty in finding loyal staff. This episode offers an honest look at the transient nature of restaurant work and the impact of poor management decisions on beloved workplaces.

Finally, we explore the sweet side of the food industry—the ice cream business! Inspired by industry veterans, we dissect the art of creating the perfect ice cream mix and the community support that local ice cream shops garner. We also touch on the value of discipline and physical activity for children, highlighting how martial arts can transform reluctant participants into thriving students. Tune in for a heartwarming and insightful episode that celebrates food, family history, and personal growth.
