Popping up at 7am was Brian Kornfeld, Founder of PopKorn Apps. With a background in aerospace engineering, Brian saw an opportunity in app design to shave tens of thousands of dollars off of the cost of app development and took the entrepreneurial dive with PopKorn Apps. We begin the discussion with a discussion on the stepping stone process of having that idea and getting it to production. Brian has produced many apps and can get that idea to the marketplace for you. We share an excellent discussion on some of the forgotten talking points when it comes to app design like patents. We learn that in many situations, apps are not patentable unless they contain hardware or software that is a trade secret. He advises to still file and having a “patent pending” tag to your app if oftentimes good enough to ward off potential duplicators of your idea. We also touch on iOS vs Android operating systems for apps and we learn some of the nuances of each of the operating systems in this segment. The field is wide open for app development ideas – from entertainment to business, apps are a great way to drive new business to yourself so reach out to Brian Kornfeld today at 727-415-6705 or visit them online at!

At 7:30, we welcomed Patrick and Zezura Ruddell, Owners of the Mini Doughnut Factory located at 2109 S Dale Mabry Hwy in Tampa. Patrick is a seasoned real estate investor turned bakery owner and shares his story of flipping over 600 homes in the Bay area and having to re-invent himself after the housing downturn due to a shortage of inventory and general market conditions that are not friendly to the real estate investor. He and his wife launched the brand in November of 2015 and it took off. Through the use of social media, they grew the brand rapidly. Some days and times of the week, you will have customers wrapped around the building waiting on the doughnuts they said. All doughnuts are made fresh to order, not pre-prepared in cases like typical doughnut shops and they have a variety of recipes and you can even customize your own doughnuts. With plans to expand shortly into St. Petersburg, Patrick and Zezura have tapped into a bakery idea that is unique and simple, the mini doughnut. Tasty and a great gift idea on top of that, visit them online today at or call at 813-254-5374!
