Lakeshore Coffee House: Meet Sue, Catherine, Alex & Chris
Posted: Apr 29, 2016

In the spirit of Mother’s Day this May we want to celebrate all the moms that make our downtown a special place to work and play.

We applaud and recognize those mothers & daughters and mothers & sons that work together in business everyday.

Sue, Catherine, Alex & Chris from Lakeshore Coffee House

  1. How long have you two been working together?

“Since we opened about three years ago.”

  1. Why did you decide to work together/open a business together/come on-board?

“They wanted to help mom succeed in her dream.”

  1. How do you balance work-life with your personal-relationship?

“We don’t really have any trouble working together – I contact Catherine whenever we need some PR done, it could be Instagram or taking some photos for us, she just gets it done. And my daughter Alex, I can call her at a moment’s notice if we run out of something she’ll race off to buy us more – both my girls are so helpful.”

My son Christopher is in charge of security, he installed all the video surveillance.

  1. What’s the best thing about working with your son and daughters?

“They’re all so bubbly … so outgoing … they speak their mind – I’m so proud of them … of all my kids!”

  1. What’s the best thing about working with your mom?

  1. Do you have any Mother’s Day plans (ie lunch/dinner out, visit a spa, special trip planned)?

“I’m working … I’ll be here! This place is my Mother’s Day!”

  1. What was the best Mother’s Day gift you ever received?

“My kids love. You can’t buy that. That’s the best gift anyone could ask for – I’m so, so, so proud of my kids.” I still get hand drawn and decorated cards.

  1. Is there anything special you want to say about your kids?

“My kids are my life. I do everything for them … they’re my whole world.”
