Restaurant Unstoppable with Eric Cacciatore
Doug York Restaurant Unstoppable Podcast

Doug York is an Exeter, NH native. He left for college in New York City at the end of the last century and found music instead. Doug and his friend created the hip hop group Granite State which performed and released 3 albums until about 2016 when they disbanded. After working for the school system in Exeter, Doug decided mid-pandemic to open a coffee shop called 7North Coffee Company. Eric and Jared produced a nonfiction miniseries podcast about Doug's journey to open the coffee shop. It has now been open for 1.5 years and the business has changed and grown since we conducted our final interview with Doug for the project back in April of 2021. For this episode, Eric and Jared sit down with Doug to reflect on 7North Coffee Company and the 7North podcast.

With excitement allow me to introduce to you today's guest, Philip Moseley. Growing up, this New Orleans native could be found in one of two places - in his kitchen learning family recipes from his mother or out in the yard mastering the grill with his father. In 2012, he partnered with Ronnie, his best friend, to create Blue Oak BBQ. Today, Phil’s days mirror his childhood; he can be found dreaming up new dishes and manning the grill alongside the team.
