Swine and Sons- Alexia Gawlak
I got to spend a lunch break with Alexia Gawlak, the chef, and owner of Swine & Sons a Michelin-recognized counter service restaurant and caterer located in historic Winter Park, Florida. This locally loved and nationally recognized counter service is offering DANG delicious sandwiches, burgers, salads, and everything in between.
I spoke to Lexi about how she and her husband Rhys helped start Swine and Sons and how they later took over ownership. We discussed how they pivoted and moved locations from their original spot to into the Local Butcher to now within Foxtail and the Courtesy-you could call it the Swine House. We spoke about how they balance it as well as the best and hardest parts of running a restaurant. I asked Lexi about sandwich-making tips. We spoke about their opportunity to be on Guy's Grocery Games and the evening they were awarded the Michelin Bib Gourmand. We spoke about new opportunities that come from a new location like Swine Subscription Boxes. Was great listening to Lexi talk about her love for food.
