Today, Ian owns Five5eeds Café on Snow Park Drive, previously run by the Percy family, fellow Australians ”who created something extraordinary,” he says. “It’s an honor to continue their commitment to quality - and Aussiness.”
Savoring “endless food and drink experiments with local produce and unique flavors,” Ian says, “I’m always looking at what dish to try next or what ingredient I can use differently.” He earned his kitchen chops at eclectic Sydney cafes and “an Ecuadorian street restaurant,” he recalls. “I have also visited coffee farms in Papua New Guinea and South America and seen ethically sourced coffee changing communities.”
“I’ve learned that Parkites are loyal and kind,” he says of his PC business experience. “People are so welcoming and quality focused.”
Busy raising a two-year-old and serving on the Chamber board, “I’m passionate about Park City, but I’m Aussie through and through,” Ian laughs, fondly recalling his mom’s Down Under downhome recipes. “Think Veggie Bake and Salmon Mornay with cornflakes on top. Soul-warming!”
That’s exactly how we describe the atmosphere and fare at Five5eeds, Ian. Stop in today!
