Wow! We are celebrating a summer with our doors open at Brain Snacks Co! A BIG thank you to everyone who has come out to support the business so far this summer. Every customer who comes through the door makes us smile.
I am so proud of my new place and the people who made it a reality. And so, I am give a few thank yous.
To start, thank you to Andy Crooks for daring to do more with me. Our life is so full and he is an amazing human. I cannot say in words how wonderful life is with Andy on my side.
Thank you to my Mom. You gave me the wings to fly in this world and I am so grateful for everything you have done for me and for our family. Because of you, I know what to do to get things to go right and, more importantly, I know what to do when things go wrong.
Thank you to Ali Nicholls, for taking the leap to join Brain Snacks Co. She is the artist behind our branding, the brains behind our marketing and the genius behind our menu. Ali championed me, supported me and helped me to make so many of the decisions that has made Brain Snacks Co the way it is today.
Thank you to Fiorante for bringing our beautiful space to life.
Thank you to the women in my life who have shored up my confidence and helped me to take big risks. You are extraordinary humans and I value you!
I would also like to recognize the Brain Snacks Co team. We have a team of about 15 people who are learning the ropes in our kitchen and in our coffee shop.
We have hired women (and a couple men) from many different walks of life: high school students; university students; newcomers; people of colour; career women; people with disabilities; and, people who may normally find it difficult to find work. Our mission is to close the gender gap and ensure honest and capable people are valued no matter their gender, their colour, who they love or any other difference.
It’s a beautiful world. See you in the sunshine.
