Buffalo is an amazing city for a ton of reasons, but the most significant reason is the people who have built up the community we live in today. Buffalo has seen a resurgence in recent years, and that's thanks to hard-working men and women who have put their passions to work for Western New York.

The goal of our newest segment, Shiftwork, is to highlight those movers and shakers in Buffalo and beyond who have put in the work to make our community as great as it is. We are teaming up one of Buffalo's greatest philanthropists, Russell Salvatore of Russell's Steaks, Chops and More, to bring you the very best of Buffalo business.

Each month we will highlight a different entrepreneur--I'll get a chance to chat with them to discuss how they've gotten where they are, the steps that got them there, and what the city of Buffalo means to them.

In this episode, I sat down with Mark Andol, the founder of the Made in America Store right here in Buffalo.

Mark's got a fascinating backstory, as he's progressed from a blue collar, get-your-hands-dirty hard worker (that Buffalo is famous for) to an owner and founder of two full businesses--while still maintaining that hard-working attitude. He's focused on the American worker, and his mission to create jobs for American citizens is so refreshing to hear in today's economy.

You've also gotta hear about "Socks for Soldiers", his program to provide for American soldiers!
