Welcome Frau Crust!

Our newest Hive Kitchen member is Frau Crust! Some of you may know Anni as the wife of Florian “The Chicken Guy” but she’s here to make her own breads and other baked goods as well. Come visit her at The Hive, currently Monday thru Friday 6am – 11am for some coffee and other baked treats to start your day. Check her website or Facebook to see what she’s baking today.

The Hive Store Open to the Public

Next week on Monday 9/14 we are going to open the storefront for you to finally come in and shop!

There is only one way you’ll be allowed in, however. You MUST wear a mask, and wear it properly the entire time you are in the store. I will be strictly enforcing this rule.

Store update

We’ve had a lot of people asking if we are opening up for people to come in and shop this week, so I just wanted to update everyone. We are going to continue the curbside pickup for the time being for a couple of reasons. The main reason is we want to make sure everyone who works in the kitchen feels like it’s time for us to open up, and we’re not all at that point. There are multiple people and businesses that rent this space, and we need to respect everyone’s opinions with regard to safety. I know a lot of people are anxious to come in and check out the new space, and we are making some plans for that to happen. We’re also talking about some sort of open house, complete with free samples from the businesses that work here. I’ll post more updates on that once we have all of the details. For anyone who doesn’t know, our online ordering site is Hivekitchenstore.com.


Thanks for your patience, and have a great weekend!

Welcome Cream-Crunch-N-More to The Hive!

It’s been a little while since I’ve gotten to do this since the shelter in place orders, but everyone! I’d like you to welcome the newest member of the Hive, Creamcrunchnmore! Besides using the kitchen as a commissary for their ice cream truck, they will also be stocking our freezer with pints of their most popular ice cream and soon ice cream cookie sandwiches for you to buy! Head on over to their facebook page to follow where they will be with their truck next!

Chicken Salad Update!

Chicken Salad Update!

I’ve had a couple of inquiries this week about chicken salad and will I be making any… everyone should be aware by now that there are some issues with the meat supply chain, which is driving prices up. The cost of chicken from the supplier has doubled in the last week, and in order to keep prices of things here reasonable, most of us are pivoting to making things where the meat we do have can be spread out. Chicken salad is almost ALL chicken. At the moment, it doesn’t make sense to make that so instead I’ll use the chicken to make soups, tetrazzini, etc. When pricing returns to normal I’ll be able to make things like Chicken salad and not have to raise pricing.
