There’s a fascinating feature in the current Washington Business Journal about gourmet catering and small business innovation. Nancy Goodman and Joel Thevoz, the married business partners at Main Event Caterers in Arlington, Virginia have created an aquaponics system for growing vegetables and raising fish – in their warehouse! The article is called Aqua-profits and it includes a fun photo gallery.

It was a pretty cool space even before they installed a fish tank and a hydroponic garden. Nancy and Joel are a creative caterers and smart businesspeople running a cool business.
