Full Steam Ahead!
Updated: Feb 10
After this past Can-Day Sunday we decided it is time we go all in!
This past weekend was an absolute blast! We are so lucky to have a community who only wants to see us succeed! We began with a pop up in Sudbury, MA. Denis had a table set up, where 300 people rowed a marathon for a cause. We want to thank the CrossFit Tilt community for always being so good to us and supporting us. Keep an eye out for a big announcement coming soon regarding a Tilt and Church St. partnership coming soon!
On the home front, Amanda and our good friend Smyth Bartley hosted a photo shoot pop-up. Pups & Cups was a major success, where every 15 minutes we were greeted with the cutest pups in the local area! We will definitely be hosting another Pups & Cups in the near future but this time with proceeds going towards a cause!
Can-Day Sunday caught us by surprise! We had no idea how busy it would be. We were caught off guard and it was steady flow of people wanting the chance to meet our crew and to sample our coffee. The doors opened up at 9 am and closed an hour later than we had expected to which ended up being at 2 pm. The positive vibes, words of encouragement and warming welcomes from the neighborhood was super rewarding. We have worked our butts off and it's finally starting to pay off.
Here Is What You Need To Know & What We Have Planned!
Our shop is being operated as manufacturing and production. As of right now we are not permitted to be full service until we get an air exchange unit required by the town of Canton. We can not have folks come in and purchase coffee or have full service seating. We are working diligently to have this air unit put into our shop so that we can have the wonderful community of Canton and beyond in our nano brewery/coffee bar! The reason why this has not happened yet is because we had run out of money for our build out budget. Even with a successful Kickstarter, the Kickstarter alone barely put a dent into the final cost of our new equipment and construction costs.
We couldn't afford to hemorrhage any further and decided to begin working in our new cool space so that we can come up with a game plan to afford this costly air unit.
This weekend brought us over a hundred brand new followers on our Facebook page, 30+ new subscribers to our website and a few dozen new Instagram followers! Without a doubt we are digging deep and trying to make a miracle happen by going "all in". It may cause a temporary set back in our already hectic financial situation but this is our dream! We truly appreciate from the bottom of our hearts of all the social media love we have been getting! You guys are the very reason why we are growing so quickly and we really appreciate the support! With this being said, we will be holding off on Can-Day Sundays until further notice. We have to respect the towns process of making sure our space is safe and operating under all codes necessary to be a full service business. In the mean time we will have cans back in stock on our site later this week, since we AGAIN SOLD OUT OF cans!
BACK TO THE MACC! Round 4!
We are excited to announce that we will be returning to the Mid Atlantic CrossFit Challenge for the 4th year in a row! Our team is thrilled to be part of the process in which athletes compete to earn a spot at the CrossFit Games! The MACC became one of the first CrossFit competitions in the US as sanctioned CrossFit Game qualifier. This year is bigger and better with now over 720 athletes competing this year! D.C. here we come! We will come out with a blog sharing how we prep for an event this big!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this blog. This is our first blog write up on our new website provider. We hope it's just as exciting and entertaining as all our old ones that we use to publish back in the day!
