Join us for the first Friday Forum of 2017 featuring Margaret and Kris Furniss, co-founders and owners of Caviar & Bananas.
Margaret and Kris met in New York, where Kris worked in finance and Margaret in marketing and branding. After a routine coffee run saved Kris’ life on September 11, 2001, he redirected his path to pursue his passion for food. Margaret and Kris created their own culinary life in New York, and eventually combined their complementary backgrounds – Kris focusing on the operations and culinary side and Margaret on branding, marketing and design – to launch Caviar & Bananas in Charleston in 2008. They opened their fourth location and first outside the Charleston market in Greenville in August 2016.
During this Friday Forum, the entrepreneurs will share their background, inspiration and experiences, as well as what it has been like to run a business as husband and wife. With their fifth store set to open later this year in Nashville, Margaret and Kris will share the lessons they’ve learned and how their roles have evolved as Caviar & Bananas has continued to flourish.
