15: Building a brand that sticks, celebrating women in food, and going green with Kerry Diamond of Cherry Bombe
On this episode of Medium Well, I chat with Kerry Diamond, co-founder of Cherry Bombe and owner of Smith Canteen. Kerry’s work with Cherry Bombe supports and celebrates womxn in the food industry, where she has built quite a following, and she also runs a coffee shop in Brooklyn dedicated to being the greenest shop in town. Our conversation covers both these topics, as well as her path in media, how being a writer has changed, and more.
In this episode, we discuss:
Kerry’s background in media
How Kerry has changed careers and industries multiple times, and why
How Kerry started Cherry Bombe, and how the industry has changed since then
The role of Instagram in the changing media landscape
Advice for writers and creatives
Her “green canteen” initiative and why sustainability is important
The challenges of running a sustainable business
How business owners and individuals can take steps towards sustainable living
Stop by Smith Canteen next time you’re in Brooklyn.
