Four Minneapolis small business owners will be featured Thursday during an event focused on community development and business growth at Dogwood Coffee's Warehouse.
The owners of Dogwood Coffee, Butter Bakery Cafe, Hot Indian Food Truck and Regla De Oro will be engaging in a discussion about how to grow their business and better connect with the community.
The event is organized by Square, a company that helps small businesses accept credit card payments, but Thursday's event will focus on the small business experience versus the tools Square offers to support them, Semonti Stephens, of Square said.
Thursday’s discussion will feature Square CFO Sarah Friar, Daniel Swenson-Klatt, Butter Bakery Café Owner, Dan Anderson, Dogwood Coffee Bar Owner, Amol Dixit, Hot Indian Foods Owner, and Jessica Smith, Regla De Oro Owner.
"We're excited to bring Minneapolis business owners together to discuss the passion for their craft as well as the challenges they face," Friar said in a news release. "I'm looking forward to hearing from Daniel, Dan, Amol, and Jessica as they share their experiences.”
“Opening Butter Bakery Cafe, a community based neighborhood café, has given me a way to connect with my neighbors, work where I live, share stories, and take on one of the restaurant industry's biggest challenges - waste,” Swenson-Klatt said. “Working with new technology, especially ones like Square, who really understand the need to build community has been a blessing and an opportunity to challenge myself. I look forward to hearing other stories and making more connections at the Let's Talk event.”
