It’s been over four years since Tamela Green and Anne Marie Arroyo embarked on the career-changing journey which would result in two now-beloved eateries: MOXIE and Trouble & Sons Pizzeria. 

During this week’s podcast, we chat with Green and Arroyo about making lemonade from lemons, as they used their 2015 lay-off from Harley-Davidson as an opportunity to bring their long-time dream of owning a business to fruition. We chat about both the challenges and rewards they encountered along the way, including adapting to the “new normal” of the COVID-19 pandemic and finding creative ways to continue to serve their customers. Along the way, we get to know two women whose fearless determination, spunk and tenacity assisted them in creating a new life for  themselves and their family while benefiting the local community.

Lori is an avid cook whose accrual of condiments and spices is rivaled only by her cookbook collection. Her passion for the culinary industry was birthed while balancing A&W root beer mugs as a teenage carhop, fed by insatiable curiosity and fueled by the people whose stories entwine with each and every dish. She’s had the privilege of chronicling these tales via numerous media, including OnMilwaukee and in her book “Milwaukee Food.” Her work has garnered journalism awards from entities including the Milwaukee Press Club. 

When she’s not eating, photographing food, writing or recording the FoodCrush podcast, you’ll find Lori seeking out adventures with her husband Paul, traveling, cooking, reading, learning, snuggling with her cats and looking for ways to make a difference.
