Fredericksburg Location Grand Opening
To hear the story about the grand opening after four months in pretty humbling. It was definitely a trial to get here. Memory charges like it took place yesterday. We were preparing for an event. All of the food was prepared and cooked.
To hear the story about the grand opening after four months in pretty humbling. It was definitely a trial to get here. Memory charges like it took place yesterday. We were preparing for an event. All of the food was prepared and cooked. At the time we were members of Frontier Kitchen (a commercial kitchen for food entrepreneurs) and stationed our food truck there. The passing away of Sandra Richards hit like a ton of bricks a load of rebar and a semi tractor-trailer of concrete. ?It took some time but the family rebounded. We took the business and made it a tribute to her in a sense.
The day we opened our physical location, there were literally cars in the parking lot waiting for the doors to unlock. From open to close we had a line out of the door. It was amazing. The feedback from the community was resounding. The support was just astounding. The thing that consistently made us take a pause was the mural of Sandra on the wall. We knew if she was here then she would be working the crowds with her smile and her personality. Uncle Lance came here from Texas for Sandra. The family has kicked in for Sandra. Our neighbor came and helped us on opening day for Sandra. Everyone loved the combination of Sandra and Rupert. Now that Sandra has left us, Rupert has spearheaded this dream that Sandra had.
Opening day was her dream coming to fruition. Opening day was all family hands on deck. Opening day was the taste of Trelawny starting the next chapter on the brand evolution.
