Come Celebrate Our 1st Birthday

Wow. 1 year.Grand Opening Party

I can’t believe how quickly the year has already flown by at TuckShop Kitchen, and now we’re about to celebrate our 1st birthday. It feels like yesterday when we were pitching city hall at a committee of adjustment hearing among big wig developers and angry residents raging against their building plans. Luckily for us, only heroes live in the Junction Triangle since we only received overwhelming support and love from the local community, signing petitions and promoting us on the Junction Triangle facebook page. Who can also forget the 8+ months of construction needed to convert a vacant garage and basement into a takeout restaurant and convenience store.

Hosting FreshBooks’ Blind Dates on CBS

TuckShop Hosts FreshBooks’ Employee Blind Date

We are honored to host FreshBooks’ Blind Dates, which was profiled on CBS Morning today! FreshBooks has been organizing blind dates with its employees, not for romance, but to connect employees who may not know each other. Some of their blind dates take place at our shop, so we were happy to offer up our space for FreshBooks again when CBS This Morning wanted to profile them about this awesome initiative.

Our hats off to FreshBooks, the brave Marcus and Shannon for going on the “date”. Hopefully our food helped break the ice! 🙂

Here’s the segment: http://re.tc/6ghzs500
