What’s your favorite part about working for Happy Harry’s?
“It’s evolved a great deal over 25 years, but our industry is an industry that for the most part involves celebration and fun and family and friends, and when people come in to get their favorite bottle of wine or six-pack of beer or spirit or a fun cocktail, they’re usually in a good mood and excited because there’s an event to attend,” he said. “There are very few jobs you can work at where you’re the fun store."
