The Bakery Life: It’s Starting to Look Like Flour & Co!

26 Aug

The construction sight at 1398 University Avenue in Berkeley is soon going to undeniably look and feel like Flour & Co.  We were seeing major hints of the warm colors and earthy tones this past week.  Wood seemed to be the week’s theme.

Our wood tables, bread shelves, and baked goods case were delivered by our carpenter extraordinaire, Pascal’s Workshop.

Picture it filled monkey bread, toasty tarts, and good old buttermilk biscuits

Ryan spent the majority of the weekend refurbishing wood tables.  We also sanded and sealed some long wood planks for a dining room design element (you won’t be able to miss it!).

you will have to wait and see

Garret at California Epoxy spent the last few weeks refinishing the floors.  They are looking dynamite!

Oh, but that’s not all.  Lights are coming on, water is being plumbed, walls are being painted, the credit card is getting more exercise than it can handle, and we started interviewing our future teammates today.

With September approaching, we’re going to be intensely working the next few weeks to ready the space, people, and baked goodies.  Before you know it, you’ll smell cinnamon swirl bread baking in our ovens!  Can’t wait to share it.
