Tell All Thursday: Meet Sarah
You may recognize Sarah from the KW-local & famous Chow Dumplings - She's put dumplings on fold for a little while to join the Four All team in the kitchen!
Sarah's work experience has always been diverse; working in everything from construction to food service and retail, then back to food service when she started Chow Dumplings with her husband Terry. She never would have guessed that her experiences would lead her into the ice cream biz. She says, "...getting to know Ajoa and seeing her drive got me pretty pumped about the idea of working together at some point".
Being a KW-local, Sarah recognizes that the KW culinary community is awesome. She believes that the tons of amazing small businesses add a phenomenal energy and character all over KW. "Having my own business able to be a part of that for even a couple years was incredible. Chow received tremendous support from the Kitchener Farmer's Market when we launched at the Food & Wine show in 2015, that gave us huge visibility in the beginning. Continued support came from Kathy (Kitchen Manager of The Courtyard Kitchens) with her flexibility of working with my schedule, Block3 Brewing for hosting our pop-ups, and of course all the Chow fans that came out to all our events over the last couple years".
Working now with Four All, Sarah is excited to work with a collaborative, creative group and receive mentorship from a passionate business owner, like Ajoa. She's been a fan of Four All since we launched last May and has enjoyed watching the steady growth of a community-focused small business. "Spend a few minutes chatting with Ajoa about ice cream and you'll want to work here too!"
A few other fun facts about Sarah:
- Her all time favourite flavour so far is our current foodie flavour: Mango Heat. If she could dream up any flavour of ice cream it would be a spicy-chocolate-avocado-something
- She's "a little" obsessed with the Legend of Zelda series
- She's played an embarrassing amount of The Settler's Of Catan
- And, she's hand folded THOUSANDS of dumplings
