Owner Spotlight: Peter and Mary Kreuziger featured in Tampa Bay Magazine

Our very own co-founder, Peter Kreuziger and his wife, Mary, were featured in the July/August 2018 Tampa Bay Magazine’s “A look at…” spotlight. The series highlights business owners, philanthropists and influencers from around Tampa Bay and offers a causal, get-to-know you, question style interview.

Peter and Mary spend their life together and work together. Peter is the president and CEO of the Bon Appetit Group (Bon Appetit Restaurant’s parent company) and Mary oversees the creative side of things, in the marketing and design department.

If you live in Dunedin or frequent Bon Appétit Restaurant, you may already know Peter and Mary personally, but in case you don’t, we thought we’d give you a little sneak peek from the feature.

Here are 5 of our favorite questions…

Tampa Bay Magazine: What did you want to be when you were younger?

Mary: Interior Designer

Peter: I am doing it daily (hospitality business)

Tampa Bay Magazine: What is your favorite word?

Mary: My favorite word is “Yes”. I am not fond of negativity. “Yes” is a word that helps you move forward.

Peter: Gratitude

Tampa Bay Magazine: What is your pet peeve?

Mary: A weak handshake with no eye contact

Peter: Tardiness, unreliability and dishonesty

Tampa Bay Magazine: What would you like to be able to do that you can’t do?

Mary: Be a carpenter

Peter: Practice law or medicine

Tampa Bay Magazine: What is your motto?

Mary: I try to live by the words of Tim McGraw’s song, “Humble and Kind.”

Peter: When life is pressing you down a bit, rest if you must, but never quit.

Of course, you can’t tell everything from just a few questions. But if you walk away with just one little idea of who Peter and Mary Kreuziger are, I hope it is that they’re caring, welcoming and dedicated to their business, community and the people they serve. The Kreuzigers are longtime residents of Dunedin, where they raised their two daughters, Courtney and Casey, and currently reside with two very loved pugs.
