Glenn Greet is the entrepreneur behind the British Market and Bakery, Chippy’s, and the first Musical Director of the Nebraska Brass Band. In the show, we talk about his early life in the pastoral landscapes of Yorkshire in England, what it means to be a British expat in America, and bringing some of the Old World to the New World - including the cultural heritage of brass bands and the consumer nostalgia of British foods and products.
Hailing from North Yorkshire in England, Glenn Greet moved to America in 2000 and now lives in Omaha with his family. A former British police officer, Greet also studied music education and conducting and has traveled with various brass bands across the world. He is the first Musical Director of the Nebraska Brass Band. In 2021, Greet opened Chippy's. Its success in Omaha has spurred the opening of two other outlets - one in Lincoln, Nebraska, and one in Des Moines, Iowa.
