“Nothing puts a smile on a consumer's face quicker than a good peach.”

This week’s guest is Shannon Houchin of RoadsideRepublic.com, and she’s passionate about peaches, fresh produce, and delivering an awesome customer experience.

Shannon actually reached out to me and said, Nick, you’ve got episodes on flipping books and mattresses, clearance products, domain names, flea market finds, and a ton of other stuff - but have I got a side hustle for you: I flip peaches.

So, of course, I had to call her up to learn more.

Turns out Shannon has been doing this for 10 years and has scaled up to operating up to 100 roadside stands at once.

Whether you’re looking for a way to make extra money on the weekend, or to scale to something larger, Shannon has a compelling story for starting a roadside produce stand.
