We jumped… and we’ve landed!

We jumped… and we’ve landed!

The first step is always the hardest… But we did it! We’ve opened at our new location 7255 South Havana Street, #110, Centennial CO 80112. It took 4 months of planning, permitting, and construction. Our new hood is 11 feet long and weighs 800 pounds. We have two ovens. More mixers. More products. We opened in a blizzard which seems auspicious, everything new, and clean, and white. (Maybe a little too much white but who’s to say?) WHAT’S NEW? Everything remains gluten. dairy, soy protein and peanut free.  We’ve expanded the grab-and-go section to include sandwiches, salads, baked russet and sweet potatoes, and our 8 second flatbread with the NEW ‘ranch’ dressing. In addition to the ‘ranch’ dressing, I’ve been working on a sundried tomato artichoke spread, a ‘honey’ mustard sauce (using agave), and perfecting our chipotle aioli sauce! We’ve got the first batch of croutons coming out for the salads. WHERE HAVE WE BEEN? In August 2105 we moved out of the Tamarac location without a new space. It was a little stressful. Our equipment went into 4 months of storage. Every table and shelf was broken down and packed. The cases, the frig’s, the oven, EVERYTHING was wrapped in huge amounts of bubble wrap and packed into storage pods. Picture us cramming the 11 foot three compartment sink into a storage pod! The hood and excess equipment spent the months in my garage. (Thank you to my family for bearing with me. It has been a crazy time.) Our vendors waited. Our customers paced. And my staff, my wonderful staff, has worked terrifically hard to get us broken...
