Bannock Express brings bannock treats right to your door
Josh Lynn · CBC News
What started as a side business to fund an online venture is now a full-time gig for Bannock Express owner Rachel Eyahpaise.”I make anywhere from 20 meals up to 65 meals a day so I get really, really busy,” said Eyahpaise during an interview with Saskatoon Morning host Leisha Grebinski.
Bannock Express offers catering as well, but Eyahpaise said that delivery is where she is seeing the most growth.
“It’s very popular that’s where most of our business is, in the delivery service.”
To meet the demand, Eyahpaise now employs a full-time delivery driver and has another part-time employee that helps out as well.
“People love the bannock and they’re like, ‘It’s just like kokum’s,'” said Eyahpaise.
Path to entrepreneurship
Bannock Express isn’t Eyahpaise’s first successful endeavour. She explained how she caught the small business bug as a child, thanks to a slurpee machine.
“When I was younger I used to just go door to door selling slurpees,” said Eyahpaise.
Eyahpaise said her memory of the experience stuck with her over the years.
“It’s always been in the back of my mind and last summer I took the leap and went full time into being an entrepreneur.”
