Hello and thank you for taking the time to view our blog!
This is our initial blog post. The Village Nosh opened in August 2019 in Boulder, CO. We began selling Eastern European baked goods from our home in Boulder using our Colorado Cottage license. After a number of weeks of baking at home, we found a wonderful commercial kitchen in Broomfield, where we rent space.
We wanted to grow our customer base and decided to participate in a number of farmers markets and holiday marketplaces around the Boulder area.
We had sell out events at the Cherry Creek Country Club holiday market in December 2019 and at the Boulder County Farmer's Market Holiday Market 2019 and the Peak-to-Peak Holiday Market 2019 in Lafayette, CO.
Our customers started repeat orders with many on subscription orders. Dianne Fishel, the owner of The Village Nosh, decided that 2020 would be a good time to expand. She applied her corporate business planning skills to The Village Nosh. She applied and received a Colorado manufacturing license to make baked goods in a commercial kitchen.
Our big break came when one of our regular customers attended a Shabbat dinner at a friend's home and we received a RFP from the largest synagogue in Boulder to bid on making 3000 hamentashen for Purim 2020. After 21 straight days of baking different varieties of Hamentashen cookies in February, we completed the order on-time and on-budget. The congregants of the synagogue LOVED our hamentashen with homemade apricot lekvar, homemade prune butter, raspberry jam and homemade poppy seed filling. The communications director of the synagogue was so please with our delicious products that we received some free advertising in their newsletter just in time for Passover.
This week has been a crazy week baking dozens and dozens of Passover macaroons for the Boulder - Denver community. We offered curbside pickup in Boulder at our home and made three varieties of coconut macaroons for the community. We also made FREE deliveries in Boulder to front-line medical staff who worked in Boulder.
Despite the slowdown in overall business beginning in mid-March from CoVid-19 as we lost one of our wholesale customers who closed, our consumer customers told us that they LOVED our organic baked goods. We thank each and every one of our customers for their belief in our business and we look forward to serving you again in the future.
We will be wearing masks and gloves during all of our baking and packaging of any orders as required by state law.
When you are down about CoVid-19 and tired of the quarantine, order something from The Village Nosh, to bring your great comfort, satisfaction and knowledge that your bakers really care about the quality of the foods that you will be enjoying by yourself or with friends and family.
