The New England Lean Podcast — S2 3: How sweet it is to grow a business with Amy Bouchard!

This week welcome Amy Bouchard to the show!

​​Amy Bouchard was a stay-at-home mom of two hen she got the idea to start her Whoopie Pie baking business. She made $1,900 in her first year, and was ecstatic.

Flash forward to today, and Wicked Whoopie’s sales are into the millions. Wicked Whoopie Pies have been featured on:

The Oprah Show, Oprah Magazine, Good Morning America, Food Network’s “Unwrapped”, “Road Tasted”, “Roker on the Road”, Rachael Ray Show, New York Times, DownEast Magazine & Food Network Magazine – among LOTS of others!

Amy walks us through some of the growing pains that came with growing her business – something that we Lean practitioners can relate to!

As always – I hope you enjoy it, and I hope you get something from it! Make it a great week!
