Please join us for our next Transportation Club of Seattle Meeting!

Our guest speaker will be Bob Donegan, President of the Ivar's Restaurants .

Bob has the best office in Seattle at the west tip of Pier 54, 10 feet above the highest tides with a full view of all marine activity Elliott Bay. Ivar’s operates its own stores from Bellingham to Tacoma and east to Spokane, and its world famous
clam chowder is sold in about 13,000 locations throughout the US, Canada, Mexico and sometimes China and Japan. Ivar's produced enough white chowder last year to fill 14 777-200s, or if stacked in 8-ounce cups, to reach as tall as 134 Mt. Rainiers.

Bob grew up in Milwaukee, graduated from the first UW in Madison, met his wife in graduate school in Connecticut, and moved to Seattle in 1984 so she could teach in the business school at the second UW. Prior to Ivar's, Bob worked with
Peet’s Coffee and about 40 start-up companies.
