New Location – Opening Date & More

By April 13, 2019 No Comments

Hello everyone!  With high anticipation, it’s finally time to announce our opening.   We’ve worked so hard fixing up the new location,  electric, plumbing, painting, new floors, etc.  It’s crazy how fast time went by after announcing our intended goal of opening our own shop.  As some of you may know, we had planned on opening earlier.  Unfortunately, we were delayed because of the necessary repairs of the building, inspections, etc.   We just got inspected this past week, and I didn’t want to announce anything until that passed.

This is a totally new experience for Urban Churn, and I hope everyone will enjoy what we’ll provide.   This upcoming week will be a soft week.    We’ll announce a ‘celebration week’ once we have our feet better planted.  Below is the brief information in regards to our opening.   For those who backed our campaign, I’m sending emails out today regarding the soft-opening invitations, certificates, etc.   When you arrive this week, we request that you submit to us your suggestions, recommendations or any praise you may have so we know what to fix moving forward.

We will have ” Introductory Stages”.  This means we’ll be rolling out new items to the menu as well as physical additions to the shop such as a mural by a local artist.   More information on what we’ll introduce over time will be at the end of this note.

Stage 2 – End of May – Beginning of June

  1. We will start making our own sodas!  I’m all about tradition, so we’ll be making our own Traditional Root Beer, using REAL spices/ingredients, NO EXTRACTS, and NO SYRUPS.  We will also offer it on tap!

  3. We will offer outdoor seating with lights so you can hang in the evenings.
