The COVID-19 pandemic created bumps in the road for many of us, and has hit the food industry particularly hard. No longer could you walk into your favorite joint and sit down for a meal, nor can restaurants rely on dine-in service as their main source of revenue. In order to stay afloat during these unprecedented times, pivots have been necessary.
Cameron Whyte is one of those restauranteurs who made some major pivots in the past year. Cameron is the owner of three local restaurants in the Milwaukee area, Merriment Social, Third Coast Provisions, and, his latest venture, Flour Child Pizza. On this bonus episode of The GoGedders Podcast, we talk to Cameron how a pandemic forced him to pivot as well as his fascinating story about how he ended up grabbing the attention of he who has all authority on frozen pizzas, Barstool Sports Founder, Dave Portnoy.
