Diversification for a More Sustainable Business Model with Local Oceans Seafood
Most of our conversations over the last several months have emphasized the struggles of maintaining a food business during the pandemic, from adding delivery concepts, to indoor dining floundering to building and heating their street patios. Today we are excited to hear how a West Coast business has been able to grow and increase employee benefits during this challenging time. Our guest today is Laura Anderson, owner and operator of Local Ocean Seafood in Newport, Oregon. Laura comes from a small boat fishing family and has grown Local Ocean into a market with a small eatery attached to a full blown restaurant with double the capacity. Throughout the pandemic they've helped keep their business running with DockBox, a weekly, seafood-focused meal kit that contains all the ingredients and instructions needed to make Local Ocean's signature recipes at home (if you live in Oregon!).
