What 2020 Will Bring BEHIND THE SCENES

When October Kitchen moved into our current spot nine years ago, I remember looking inside our walk-in freezer and thinking, “What am I supposed to do with a freezer this big?” Over the years, I swear the freezer has shrunk. These days we have to play a sliding puzzle game and move everything around to make space for anything new. That’s why one of the first things I did when October Kitchen expanded our space was buy a second walk-in freezer. We outgrew our current space a while back, but we love our home in Blue Duck Plaza, which is why I’m happy to announce that October Kitchen is expanding to take over the empty space next door! This shift won’t lead to any big changes for our customers, our menu or any of the services we provide. You can expect your October Kitchen experience to remain largely unchanged. But behind the scenes, it’s quite a dramatic upgrade for us. As I mentioned before, we’re getting a second walk-in freezer so we have the space to store twice as much stuff! We’re also going to have a dedicated service entrance so our shop customers and delivery boxes won’t be crowded in the same space. Plus, Alison, Stephanie and I are moving out of the tiny office we’re currently in and into some real office space. I’ll tell you, it can be tough to focus on a project when you’re in the middle of the cacophony of the kitchen. Another change I’m personally excited for is that we’re going to have space for a second blast freezer. This is a huge boost for our

operation! Our blast freezer is what we use to prepare our frozen entrees. However, it takes up to four hours to run a full cycle, and with our demand, we usually end up staying at the kitchen well past midnight on Wednesdays to get everything done. Being able to get everything done twice as fast will be phenomenal! Expanding into this new space is empowering October Kitchen to be more efficient as well as giving us the opportunity to really look into the future. We’ll be turning part of our new space into a multipurpose room for in-house events. I was wondering what kind of events we might have in that room when I was struck with the memory of Sunday dinners. I have a great appreciation for Sunday dinners. It was a tradition in my family I truly cherished. These days, Sunday dinners aren’t so common. I know we have a number
