Once Lyndsey Bell realized that the corporate life was not for her, she and her partner Jay Valeri dove into the world of donuts and coffee.  Since they found their sweet spot and opened Bigfoot Donuts seven years ago they have gone from strength to strength.

In this episode, Mark, Lyndsey and Jay talk all things donuts and coffee, being able to take advantage of opportunities when they are presented, who exactly is going to drive their donut truck, and more.  It's a fun talk with two hard working bakers.
