When we asked Co-Owner and Chef Chris Harrison from Table 33 what he’s learned in the first year of business and he shared that he’d “been pleasantly surprised by how welcoming the community was. We opened modestly with breakfast and lunch, letting the people drive our growth, while we focused on building our team and our culture.”
They’ve continued to let demand drive their delivery, recently shifting their hours to be able to accommodate the pre-theater crowds.
With the new hours they are looking to add some staff, both front and back of the house, so if you know of a great candidate for them, share this application.
Co-Owner Charlie Carroll shares that he’s “most thankful that in their first year of operations they found Dayton was ready for their progressive food and ideas and welcomed their Gluten-Free menu items.” Opening the patio added
more seating and according to Harrison, “it’s still rocking. Guest are enjoying coffee in the sun.”
Both owners mentioned how their catering has just taken off, they are doing lots of breakfast meetings, boxed lunches and private events. They’ve also hosted bridal showers, family parties and product launch parties on-site.
Looking to the future they hope to have their first satellite spot at the Dayton Metro Library opened in the next month or so. They are currently waiting on some electrical and wiring work to be complete before they can begin offering their complete coffees service, with baked goods and fresh squeezed juices. But that hasn’t stopped them from catering some of the special events that have been going on at the library already.
Speaking of the future, the guys mentioned that adding Sunday brunch to the restaurant offerings isn’t too far away and they hope to continue to evolve the menu. A few new offerings will debut tomorrow, adding some vegan dishes, including a smoked pumpkin soup, and hot apple and pear cider.
