Chef Eric Rivera is one of my first podcast guests, and we recorded his interview when he was first moving back to Seattle. Fast-forward a few years, and both of us are in very different roles.

Chef Eric has founded addo, an innovative pop-up restaurant and chef business incubator space. After a year in the Coffee Flour space, Eric has moved the location and has founded his own on-going pop-up, Lechoncito, serving Puerto Rican delights for business lunches and dinners. He’s even taking a tour group to Puerto Rico next year!

Never held back by fear, Chef Eric talks about why it’s important to encourage or even push growth and why he’s glad his own chef teammates outgrow his business.
