Nate Snell comes on our podcast to talk about how the pandemic offered Pip's Original Doughnuts the opportunity to sprout a new business he and his wife Jamie had been thinking about for years, which is to bottle their coveted Chai as a concentrate and offer it for sale to their customers and eventually wholesale to grocery stores. Their new Community Chai has as its foundation a charitable component, which is something the Snells have weaved into everything they do. We also talk about how COVID-19 changed their world immediately, and how they scrambled to figure out the best path for their popular cafe.
