Dover OH Photographer | feature friday with bread head bistro
Dover OH Photographer
I am super excited about my Feature Friday series which will highlight other local small businesses in our area. I’ve got all kinds lined up too from coffee shops, landscaping, yoga studios, jewelry designers, a massage therapist, local artists and so much more. Normally these will be posted on the first Friday of each month. This week is a little different due to various circumstances. So lucky you, you’ll be getting 2 weeks in a row of my Feature Friday series! I can’t wait to share more local businesses with all of you in Tuscarawas County. If you own a local business and would like the opportunity to be featured for a future Feature Friday, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with FEATURE FRIDAY in the subject line.
First up for this series is Bread Head Bistro. We have all known them for years as Bread Head Bakery. Keep reading to find out what encouraged this name change and also what we can expect from BHB in the next few years! I know one thing that hasn’t changed though… the quality of their products. YUM! I’m currently trying not to devour one of their delicious buckeyes in one fell swoop. 😉 When I went to photograph their shop located in downtown Dover, I ordered my favorite drink, the S’mores Latte. As always, it was delicious!! 🙂 (see photo below and just try to resist wanting your own… I dare you 😛 )
Tell me about Bread Head Bistro… When did you open? How did you get started?
I founded Bread Head Bakery LLC in August of 2007. Bread Head began life as a home-based bakery. I worked in small batches, baking unique, all natural artisan breads. In 2008 I opened the original Bread Head Bakery in a 300 sq ft shop on North Wooster in Dover. In early 2009 BHB moved to our current location at 113 West Third Street. We reopened as Bread Head Bakery & Coffee Shop.
(Pssst… Brandi talking here… I asked Jason what his favorite wall is in BHB and he immediately went to the Jimi Hendrix painting 🙂 This painting has been with them since the beginning in this location)
I know you just went through a re-brand from Bread Head Bakery to Bread Head Bistro. What inspired this change? What’s different about Bread Head now and can we expect any more changes in the coming year?
I wish the re-brand was complete! It’s still ongoing, actually. It’s quite the process! I wanted to be more than ‘just a bakery’. The overall feel is the first thing people notice. We have new tables, chairs, lighting and decor. We’ve added larger tables to accommodate larger groups. We’ve made the place much more comfortable, cohesive and inviting. We’ve worked very hard to provide a quality dining experience. We completely overhauled our beverage program. We now offer Muggswigz coffee and espresso. My baristas are incredibly friendly and produce exceptional drinks. We just renovated the entire back-of-house. We added another oven, a stove and a whole lot more. We now offer a full menu that includes flatbread pizzas, sandwiches and breakfast served all day. We’re also taking the farm-to-fork thing very seriously. My fiancee and I own a small organic farm in Carroll County. We’ll be growing much of our own produce for the restaurant this season. We will expand our production capabilities at the farm in years to come. You can expect a steady progression of exciting changes for the next several years! I’ll let you in on our next big project for 2015: we’re completely renovating our building’s exterior.
(^^^^ Hey, it’s Brandi again… I am superrrrrrrr excited to see what you do with the exterior of your Bistro!!!! Thanks for sharing that tidbit!!!! 😀 That will be something fun to keep an eye out for.)
How would you describe your customers?
Can you let me in on any secrets of Bread Head Bistro? Maybe some awesome drinks that aren’t on the menu?
Work related or not, what are some of your favorite-must-have-always-have with you things?
PS – This wall you see here? It has big plans to feature local artists work here in the very near future… Contact Bread Head Bistro to inquire how.
