On this week's episode of Pollinate, Matt sits down with friends Samuel and Phoebe Charles of Rodina restaurant. Like many restaurants and small businesses who faced a challenging year, Rodina has had to strategize new ways to keep their restaurant going and to continue to serve to their customers.
On today's episode they discuss the humble beginnings of Rodina, opening up a corner store, and what they have planned for the future. Located in Historic Czech Village in Cedar Rapids, Rodina offers Midwest comfort food in traditional family style fashion where the food is sourced local, sustainable, and humanely raised as much as possible.
