Casey and Matt Steele created Square One with a vision to offer professional commercial kitchen space to up and coming food businesses. From there Square One grew to include cooking classes, team building events and more then we ever could have imagined. Casey teaches several cake pop classes as well as kids cooking classes at Square One while managing the facility. We are fortunate to have such a lovely community and to love what we do!
Bee Mittleider is the owner of Deep Blue Seafood.
She’s a food lover, culinary explorer and fantastic mum who’s happily married to her university sweetheart (he’s a completely amazing guy). She’s excited about finding ways to make seafood easy and approachable for home cooks and loves sharing her knowledge of seafood with others.
Bee moved from her native London England in 2004 to get married and start a life with John, a lifelong North Dakotan.
Missing the variety and accessibility of seafood she enjoyed in London, she and John started Off The Hook Seafood in 2013 and expanded their business with the opening of Deep Blue Seafood in the summer of 2016 becoming Fargo’s first and only seafood market and restaurant. They have an incredibly awesome daughter, Tabitha, who can be spotted running Deep Blue Seafood with Mom and Dad. You can find Deep Blue Seafood at www.dbseafood.com
