Kieran's official bio
Kieran has four decades of experience developing and building brands and businesses in the food, beverage and hospitality sector. After establishing the successful restaurant portfolio, Cara Irish Pubs based in the Twin Cities area, including The Local, Kieran’s Irish pub, The Liffey and Cooper and selling them in 2011, Kieran founded 2 GINGERS® Irish Whiskey and within two years 2 GINGERS® was acquired by Beam, a leading global liquor company. Kieran is now leveraging the experience gained from these businesses as well as his networks to create The Lone Grazer Creamery, Red Table Meat Co., and Bakers' Field Flour & Bread at FOOD BUILDING. He is principally responsible for the vision and direction of FOOD BUILDING brands.

About the Local Legends speaker series
Startups are nothing new in Minnesota. Many of the products and services we take for granted were started by a lone entrepreneur at some time. Target, General Mills, Medtronic, 3M, Best Buy? All founded by someone with a big idea. We want to sit down with the founders of well-known and much-loved local businesses and projects and simply ask them, “how’d you do it?”
