Oral History Minute: Interview with Seth Sullivan

Oral History Minute: Interview with Seth Sullivan

Sunday Evening Oral History Minute: Featuring Seth Sullivan, co-owner of The Cardinal restaurant in Boone, NC.
In Seth's interview he stresses the importance of the High Country community to the success of his business.

"Within the community we work with everything from brewers and local farmers, even local exterminators so a pretty wide swath of different kinds of people. Obviously we use large big box purveyor for somethings like French fries and that’s US Foods, but even the people we are in direct contact with live in this economy. But we try to do everything else as locally as we can. We have several local beers on tap, we have farm fresh produce even this time of the year that we are getting from a local farm, as much as we can. Our produce distributor is a local.That’s something that my partners and I, because we have decided to make our lives here, it’s really important to us, being able to support a local economy that is kind of insular in some ways, but it is something we make an effort for. "
