Gary Mack and Alan Forbes, spouses and co-owners of Bay-Village Coffee were our featured speakers today.  Their eatery of excellence won the Thunder Bay Chamber of Commerce’s Business Excellence Award, and they told their story of falling into the business - they bought the shop, did some fix ups, dashed off for a week of barista training in Toronto and opened the doors the next week!  Success soon followed.  Coffees, teas, outstanding home-made food, community spirit, local love and fundraisers – served with fun and smiles every day!  
They now specialize in "car hop" service and "Taste of Joy", have a payroll of 16 and iconic presence in the City! Their
tag-team ad lib style was highly-infectious, ebullient and won accolades from the audience – many of whom are already regulars. Splendid work, gentlemen!

They were introduced and thanked by strong admirer, Rotarian Michael Nitz.
