Denver has so much going for it, for the FOODWORKS community and beyond. It’s the ultimate place for outdoorsy, adventurous types, but it also boasts a laidback urban sophistication that’s just cool, pardon the pun. The city founded on the prospect of gold shines today as a diverse destination for unique cultural events, colorful arts districts and must-visit museums. In the spring, Denver plays host to a famed Cinco de Mayo celebration, the largest of its kind in the United States. Come fall, hordes of craft-beer lovers descend on the Colorado Convention Center for the Great American Beer Festival, the largest beer festival in the world.
And let’s face it. You really can’t talk about the Mile High City without talking beer. (Okay, and cannabis.) While it’s true Denver has the craft-beer scene on lock, there’s much more that defines the culinary vibe of this snow-capped city and, in turn, the work we do at FOODWORKS. Hip neighborhoods such as RiNo and LoHi are packed with everything from upscale Italian to Venezuelan arepas counters, and they’re the perfect place to discover the next FOODWORKS favorite. Denver is also a hub for intriguing pop-up restaurants, approachable chef-driven concepts and artisanal third-wave cafes, all of which we work to support every day as part of the FOODWORKS family.
“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.”
“FOODWORKS cares about my profitability. They ask me, ‘How much do you need to make to make this work for you?’ I know my break-even point and they’ve been so cognizant of that, putting us in locations where we’ve blown that number out of the water several times over. It feels like a true partnership.
I can’t emphasize enough how understanding they are. You have to be, otherwise small businesses are never going to gain visibility. FOODWORKS doesn’t compromise on the quality of restaurants they work with, but at the same time, they’re super flexible. That balance is hard to come by.
Our second brick-and-mortar location is due in no small part to our relationship with FOODWORKS.”
“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.”
