Show Notes

We don't advise you listen to this episode of The People of Penn State on a hungry stomach! We're joined by Kristina Mazza '02, the owner of Hoagies & Hops restaurant in Indianapolis, Indiana!

 With bread coming from South Jersey, meat, pickles and chips coming from Philly and the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country, through Hoagies & Hops, Kristina hopes to give Indy a taste of what Southeast PA comfort food is all about.

In the show, Kristina discusses how her passion for food got started, what it's like running her own restaurant, bringing Pennsylvania foods to Indy, the excitement behind hosting Penn State watch parties, and a lot more.
