Shannon and Trent are working their magic. Restoring a tired old historic house to something of beauty. A somewhat modernized look, but with a nod to history and traditional architecture of the times.
Meanwhile, we are continuing to plan for an opening the first week of June. Researching and buying equipment, reviewing menu options, learning the gelato business with some great help from our young Nephew Steven in San Antonio. The Gelato Master!
We’ve been fortunate for a good working relationship with North Valley Bank and they are partnering with us to help out with capital expenditures.
Lots to do.
As always, we are on the lookout for great food ideas–I happened upon a superb yogurt bowl the other morning at a coffeeshop in Worcester, Mass. So simple but so delicious.
Interestingly. Coincidentally, we will be opening 30 years after I opened my first business, also a coffeeshop but combined with a bookstore, in Pocatello Idaho. Our tagline there was ‘Damn fine cuppa Jo‘.
Time passes, but my love for coffee and camaraderie and good food and conversation has not diminished in all these years. So we are both very excited about getting this venture open and meeting our neighbors in a new space–over a cuppa.
