Week of May 16, 2016

Rob Salvino

At Cereal Box Bakery one of our core beliefs is that good bread is meant to be shared. We aren't the first ones to think so. The words ‘company’ and ‘companion’ derive from the Latin for ‘with bread.’ So, with that in mind, we baked a little extra to share with you. This week in your box (bag) we included one additional item for you such as a package of crackers, some granola, or a second loaf of bread.

We’d be completely happy if you decided to enjoy the extra treat yourself, but we’d also be delighted if you caught the sharing bug. Sure, we'd love it if you wanted to share with a friend who might be a prospective customer, but we'd be just as happy if you shared it with an older neighbor on a fixed income or your son's fifth grade teacher.

We also would love for you to share your comments, recipes, and food photos of the food we deliver on our Facebook page and Instagram.

Also, this Friday we’re participating in the Cascade Bicycle Club’s Bike Everywhere Day! We will have a booth at the Nickerson St. refresh station just south of the Fremont bridge. We’ll be handing out bagels and scones. Come on by if you’re on two wheels that day. Tell your friends. We’re expecting up to 1,000 riders to stop by. We’d love to see you too!
