Lionel K from Sconeage Bakery – E001

…and then one day, I met this woman.

It seems the most romantic adventures begin with that sentence.  You meet someone.  Standing on the white sand beaches of Mexico.  Feeling the ocean breeze, the warm ocean water.  And then, the person you want to spend the rest of your life comes into view.  You talk all night long.  You really connect with this person.  And the next morning, they’re gone.

And when she left, she took Lionel’s heart.

Lionel moved to Long Beach, married that woman and launched his coffee shop business.  Before long, Sconeage was born.  Maybe you’ve tried their legendary tri-berry scones.  Or snacked on his drool inducing granola.

Running a coffee shop is tough.  But Lionel and his family prevails.  Twenty five years and going strong.  He found a way to differentiate his business.  Something every business needs to do in order to survive.

Here’s his story.
