The Business of Food with Steve Alexander

A Chicago businessman ditches the hotdog roller and adds a touch of class to convenience

Locally-owned Foxtrot reimagined what the corner store can look like. What it sells is also different, with food and beverages from local artisans. Pictured is the new Milwaukee and Damen location.

What started as an online delivery-only food and beverage business seven years ago has now added its ninth brick and mortar store to Chicago neighborhoods. Steve spoke with Mike Lavitola, the co-founder and CEO of Foxtrot.
