Downtown Kingston! | People of the Big Dig: Richard from Menchies

People of the Big Dig: Richard from Menchies

With weather like this it will take a lot more than construction to keep us away from our froyo! Meet Richard from Menchies! A uniquely delicious fro-yo bar is waiting for you smack dab in the middle of downtown. Have as little or as much as your little heart desires and don’t forget to pile on the toppings! 

What is your favourite thing about downtown Kingston?

My favourite thing would be the fact that I don't need a car to get around. I like to walk and Kingston is perfect for that.

What is your favourite product or service that you offer?

The variety of frozen desserts and toppings are great! Customers have the flexibility to choose what they want and how much they want.  For example, if you want to mix Nutella with Oreo and pieces of Skor you can do that... or if you want to make that into a cake, there's always that option too!

What’s your background?

I’m from a small town called L'Orignal.  Yes, I realize I sound silly saying I'm from 'moose'.  If someone asks I just tell them 'it's near that place that has the Beau's Brewery'.  My family moved to Kingston when I was young and they've since planted themselves firmly here.  In my spare time I like to try ignoring my cat who constantly needs my attention, play the piano and completely zone out and play some video games.

What television character do I feel is most similar to me?

Scrooge McDuck from Duck Tales.  We have similar styles.


What is your special/weird talent?

I have many pointless talents.  I'd have to say licking my elbow is a weird one, and I'm pretty good at sneaking up behind my employees unannounced and scaring them!
