Business Name: Aesop's Table
Location: Saint Paul
Owner: Anthony Mahmood
We opened Aesop’s Table in 1986, and in an average year we have about 175-200 events. Now we just do catering, and I’ve been at Aesop’s Table for 36 years. I’ve been in the food business since I was in diapers.
Today, Ideal Credit Union asked me to come out here. We come out here, we set up, we do all the burgers. The employees of the credit union serve them and everybody just loves it. Good barbecue is all about the love. If you love the things that you do it’s going to transfer into the flavor.
We are located in Saint Paul on Dale Street north of Interstate 94.
My great grandfather started the Postal Employee Credit Union. When I was 10 years old, my grandpa brought me down to the original branch and signed me up and I’ve been hooked ever since.
As a member of almost 50 years, there are so many different products that Ideal has come up with and things that they do, it has opened my eyes to a whole new world of how I can run my business.
