Hello Kind Soup Lovers!

Panorama view from Ariane’s office

It’s already the first day of May and we’ve been hunkered down preparing to start a Soup Revolution! It’s been a while since we’ve souped together and we sure do miss spooning with you! You’ve been ever so patient and kind while we’ve been undergoing the big changes inside these brick walls behind the closed curtains. 

With Dustin’s re-designed kitchen, we’re nearly ready to have our stockpots bubbling up again right now with Evergreen’s Comfort Food; yet we all have a little longer to wait. The soup display refrigerators are trying to make their way from Texas. And we just can’t sell soup any more without somewhere COLD to put it. That pretty much sums up the delay.

By Thursday we should have a solid ETA from the South and shortly thereafter, we’ll have an ETA from the Chef on the Soup. FYI, you’ll be able to smell the familiar bouquet of simmering onions and garlic wafting across the parking lot breeze for several days in preparation; and hear me now Soup Lovers, I’ve never wanted something from Texas to arrive in Colorado so fast. =)

The soupremely cool remodel construction has been a complete success! With Dustin at the lead of his crew per usual, Rico, Hallie, Steven and several trusted friends with key skills beyond ours, have achieved an incredible new look for the inside of Da Kind Soups.

Catch small glimpses of your new soup store while you enjoy a few sneak peeks at the mess we made along the way!  We can’t wait to show you what we’ve done with the place, it’s just souper!

Stay tuned for more updates and pictures to come! See you Ladle!

What a Mess!

Happy WEDNESDAY Soup Lovers!

Three (3) days left to enjoy the Da Kind Soups dine-in experience!

What that means is that after May, our soup BAGS will be available:
1) to the public online for shipping
2) other restaurants/local grocers in a wholesale capacity
and… it is our every intention to remodel our existing space into a
3) Soup Store in our current location, with an expanded selection (both in variety and bag sizes) of our Soup Bags available to the local public to continue enjoying, albeit now, in a take-home capacity.
Many of our loyal and devoted Soup Lovers are excited and positively supportive of the changes ahead for our business and our family. Naturally, there is also dismay at the upcoming loss of our cozy dining space and there are bowlfuls of questions surrounding the changes we’re about to make. We not only fully empathize but also consider it to be the highest of compliments that we will be so missed.
We wouldn’t be changing if everything was smooth as bisque; The restaurant industry is brutal in every sense and the forecast isn’t trending upward. Margins are slim, seasons are unpredictable and with overwhelming labor challenges, it was finally time to rein our hard-earned business back into our own protective hands and re-invent our business model in an effort to save our best product, the soup.
The storefront portion of our plan is contingent on the funding which we are currently relying to come from the above mentioned Kickstarter crowd funding platform. It’s an ALL OR NOTHING deal, and we’re obviously quite far. However, we’re also optimistic yet still, that we can achieve our goal  with help from our Soup Loving community and now with our shipping capabilities, the Soup Lovers far away too.

Please consider pledging your support and demonstrating your love of soup today on our Kickstarter page on our website.  We’re soupremely grateful to have served this community well for nine years and we look forward to many more.

Happy MONDAY Soup Lovers!

 FINAL COUNTDOWN ~ FIVE (5) DAYS!
Five days remaining to enjoy the Da Kind Soups Dine-In Experience.

The early morning simmering of onions and garlic, followed by the hustle and bustle of daily prep, before the soup shop ramps up for the busy excitement of hurried and leisurely lunchers and then time to refuel, restock and ready again for hungry suppers, cleaning and wrapping it all up to start again for another day.  This kitchen’s schedule is about the change it’s daily operation and the end is drawing near.
In just five days this kitchen will grill it’s last reuben, make it’s last tray of bacon, dress it’s last salad and ladle the last hot bowl of soup.  If you’ve ben putting off your farewell meal because you’re busy, or in denial, either way folks, it’s time.  The final week is here and It’s time to come and say good-bye.
And it’s time to stock up on soup as well.  A reminder that during the month of April, the town is going dry.  No soup will be served, hot, cold or otherwise.  The kitchen is going dark during the remodel so if you’d like to taste Tomato a week, or three weeks from now, get some before Friday and put it in your freezer. I promise you, you’ll be souper happy when you look in there after a couple weeks, forgetting you have a bag of chili behind the ice cream.  During the last week of April you might even fetch a good price for it when the soup addict market is at it’s peak.  =)

Please check out our Kickstarter campaignign on our website.  We have a long way to go to get the numbers needed to complete the remodel and we need your help. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dakindsoups/soup-is-kindness-in-da-bag
