Hello fellow Omnivores. I’m sitting here at the steezin’ Blackcoffee Roasting Company in our home town of Missoula, MT. Brainstorming the direction of our first blog post, I’ve always found enjoyment in putting my thoughts to paper and hope this forum serves as an extension of that gusto. The goal? Provide a transparent perspective into the Omnibar life. With contributions from others we consider family, I encourage you to share, build, challenge, and grow with us.
Onward. We introduced Omnibar a year and a half ago and our first order came from the respected voice in W. Montana running – The Runners Edge. This team breathes a culture and community outreach that all specialty retail aspires to emulate. Some of my favorite memories with Omnibar have been along side this crew. Whether it’s group dinners saturated with gut wrenching laughter, or the sting of numb hands as final preparations are made for a frigid 6am race start, these are samplings of what make my job awesome. The common theme, good company.
At the end of the month I’ll be hitting the road for a dirt-bag road tour of sorts across the Pacific NW. Adding to the foundation of friendships that have made Omnibar what it is today, I ask you to share with me your favorite places filled with rowdy, passionate folk you feel would benefit from some Omni-stoke in their life. I’ll be documenting my journey along the way and sharing an insiders look at what it’s like to be launching a sports nutrition company in 2015.
Cheers to the road ahead, and good company.
