We’re ironing out your plans for Valentine’s, Galentine’s, Mardi Gras, and the Super Bowl weekend on this week’s show with our guests from Iron Oven, Blue Sunday Bensalem, and Velvet Cupcakes.
Continuing traditions is big for most families, and our first guest did so in a huge way by opening Iron Oven in Southampton, PA.  Alex Nalbandian grew up learning the restaurant industry from his parent’s well-known business, Rising Sun Pizzeria.  Years later, Alex took over the management of his parents restaurant, furthering his familiarity with the industry, managing staff, and running a business. Nine years later, Alex was Inspired to open his own restaurant, and opened Iron Oven.  Now, you can look forward to biting into their most popular item–Philly’s beloved Cheesesteak, or chow down on one of their burgers, pizzas, or strombolis.
If you’re a fan of fusion-based restaurants, then be sure to check out Blue Sunday Bensalem.  The American and Asian Fusion based restaurant offers a modern twist for any foodie to delight in!  If you’re craving a steak, seafood, or note-worthy cocktail then visit Blue Sunday Bensalem.  The venue offers a delicious variety of foods, ranging from Singapore Noodles to Gumbo or feel free to make it an intimate date night and share a Seafood Boil with your loved one!  Or, should you and your friends want to hang out for some drinks and quick bites–be sure to check out Blue Sunday Bensalem’s Happy Hour–it happens every day, including on the weekends!
We love a sweet ending, or in our next guests’ case–a sweet beginning!  Beri Maeda is not new to owning and running a successful cupcake business; her first venture began at age 14 with Baked by Beri.  Years and a successful business venture later, Beri Maeda is currently attending the Wharton School of Business, where she met her fellow classmate and business partner, Allene Yue.  After the pair discussed Beri’s former venture, they decided to begin a startup together, named Velvet Cupcakes–offering unique and intricate cupcakes created with the same delicious recipes that founded Beri’s first successful cupcakery business.  Be sure to follow them on instagram: @velvetcupcakesbakery and check out their tempting array of sweet treats!
