Albuquerque’s natural beauty is reason enough for us at FOODWORKS to fall in love with the city. From painted skies to picturesque mountains and rolling trails to the grand Rio Grande, the vistas in this high desert city are something to behold. And they’re just the backdrop. As the epicenter of Southwestern life, Albuquerque is ripe for exploring Native American culture and history stretching back thousands of years. (Plus, it will forever have bragging rights as the city where “Breaking Bad” was filmed.)
As for our favorite topic at FOODWORKS—food—it’s the proverbial icing on the cake in Albuquerque. There is truly nothing like New Mexican cuisine, an intertwining of Mexican, Native American and Spanish flavors that highlights native ingredients like blue corn, squash and those famous red and green chiles—and there’s no better place in which to experience it than Albuquerque. Traditional Southwestern eateries happily exist alongside trend-setting chef-driven restaurants. The city’s diverse ethnic makeup means you can enjoy everything from banh mi to Neapolitan-style pizza. And did you know the Rio Grande Valley is the nation’s oldest wine-making region? It’s enough to keep our FOODWORKS team excited about what’s lies ahead in Albuquerque, aside from those gorgeous mountains.
“FOODWORKS struck us as an interesting concept because we’ve been trying to grow for so many years now. People ask us all the time about opening up another location, but the timing hasn’t worked out. So when FOODWORKS presented this to us, I was like, ‘Wow, we can go into these different locations and serve our food without having to open an actual store.’”
“For FOODWORKS to reach out to us and offer us this opportunity as a small business, to come into their cafes and be a part of what’s going on with downtown Detroit, that's been a blessing.”
“FOODWORKS is great to work with. They make it very easy, from setting up to payment. It’s just a no-brainer, and Shannon [Kubina, general manager for FOODWORKS in Detroit] is amazing to work with.”
“Outside of the additional revenue, FOODWORKS has given us marketing exposure. We've gotten catering opportunities from just one week of doing a pop-up. That's exactly the exposure I was looking for in our second year of being open.”
“FOODWORKS has an expansive network, so we try to go to as many locations as possible. You’re able to reach a different base of people, which is always great for business.”
“With FOODWORKS, we saw an opportunity to work in a professional kitchen with professional chefs. It’s about learning every aspect of the food industry, and it’s helped us better serve our customers’ needs at our food truck.”
“You’ve gotta generate buzz. You’ve gotta get people genuinely excited about what you’re doing, and that’s what FOODWORKS does. They’re all about bringing local flavor to downtown Detroit.”
“FOODWORKS has been the perfect opportunity for us, especially in the summertime. Normally, restaurants in Arizona drop 10 to 15 percent in business due to the heat, but we haven’t had that this year at all… I sell out of my signature Crispy Garlic Chicken every time. It doesn’t matter how much I bring. And I can see sales of that dish increase at my restaurant.”
