Description: What do specialty coffee and clam chowder have in common? It’s Mr. Bob Donegan! As Chief Financial Officer and Executive Vice President at Peet’s Coffee from 1994 to 1997, Bob Donegan helped grow Peet’s specialty coffee business from 19 to 31 stores. In 1997, he became involved with Seattle’s Ivar’s Restaurants serving delicious clam chowder, fish and chips and seafood. He was appointed as President of Ivar’s Inc. in 2001 and since he started he has grown the business from 45 to 61 units! We’ll be sharing favorite stories during the early days at Peet’s Coffee, what it’s like running Ivar’s, and about Bob’s current projects and passions. And we look forward to hearing more about Clem the Clam and the popular dancing clams!
