Welcome to Four Things I Learned This Week! We have a nice variety this week—enjoy!
Twisted Croissant expands. Good news for Twisted Croissant fans: you’ll be able to find their products at Zupan’s Markets! Via their Instagram page: “Starting Monday @zupansmarkets will be carrying our croissants! NW Burnside, Lake Grove in Lake Oswego, SW Macadam in John’s Landing. We are excited and thrilled to be at their markets!
New Seasons sold to South Korean’s company. Big news in the local grocery store scene: New Seasons was sold to South Korean company Emart. Sale should be finalized in the new year. New Seasons has been owned by an out of state company for a while, so now it’s owned out of the country. There was hope that it could have become worker-owned, but that did not come to pass.
Coffee molecule love. Fascinating little tidbit on Facebook: “I was told that this light fixture is a caffeine molecule! How cool is that?!! This is at Case Study Coffee on NE Alberta.”
Tinker Tavern coming to Montavilla. Not much out there right now but a new drinking and eating establishment named Tinker Tavern is opening in the old Eco Baby Gear location in Montavilla (7890 SE Stark). The liquor license indicates Eric Mahan of Stammtisch and Prost! is involved.
