We had the good fortune of connecting with Terence Rogers and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Terence, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
When I was finishing college it was in the midst of the great recession and jobs were scare, people seemed to be able to make a living in more non traditional ways and that was very exciting to me. I had always do some small jobs for myself in the past but I really wanted to move into working for myself. The idea of putting in long days and working hard seemed a lot more exciting when it was for myself and my company instead of someone else’s.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
We really look at business as a sustainable practice, that includes how we source ingredients, how we treat our staff and how we interact with guests. We are in this for the long haul and want to make sure we are support those in the organization and those around us continue to thrive.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Denver is a place for the outdoors, if thats hanging in a one of the many great breweries or restaurants, wondering around or even just hanging at a park to soak in the sun and what the city has to offer.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
To start with my family and my soon to be wife Holly. Everyone has been with us since we started hosting pop-ups in my apartment on a pool table, through the hard times of not being sure we could pay our bills, without the love and support of everyone i don’t think we would have made it this far. Also a big shoutout to my culinary mentor David who taking the time to teach me the ropes of not only cooking but a food business this experience was incredibly valuable and saved me a ton in loans from going to culinary school
