Pierogi Chronicles: Comfort food, Polish Cuisine, & Digital Marketing | Lauren Gorney: Ep.002 150 150 OnTheStacks

Welcome to episode 2 of the Food Fight Podcast in the Loop Internet studio hosted by Brian DiMattia! In this episode, Brian is joined by Lauren Gorney, Co-owner of NEPA’rogi. In our discussion, Lauren offers a peek behind the curtain of NEPA’rogi, where passion for authentic Polish cuisine meets the trials and tribulations of running a food business. We swap stories of our culinary beginnings, from family kitchens to restaurant chaos, reveling in the shared experiences that shape our food philosophies. But it’s not all buttered noodles and cottage cheese – we get down to business discussing marketing, the role of social media in today’s food landscape, the importance of community over competition, and how genuine engagement with customers elevates the dining experience.
