Brendan McCann and Dan Casey are the owners of Perfect Blend Café and The Twisted Vine Wine & Tap, both located in Delmar, NY and are both natives of the Capital Region of NY.
In August of 2006, the two, along with 3 friends, packed into a minivan and set out on a cross-country road trip. Over the course of 12 days – during music concerts, days of driving, and hours of conversation – a dream was devised, which would eventually turn into what they have built today.
The two have a passion for making other people happy through the power of good food and good conversation – both of which can be found at their establishments in Delmar.
I caught up with the two in order to hear about their entrepreneurial journey, and learn about what they attribute their success too.
