In August of 2004 I pulled the ovens out of my house, took my kitchen aid mixer, a few knives and opened Spoons Cafe in a small space on a side street in downtown McKinney Texas.
I was unemployed, had no money and no experience in the restaurant industry. Everybody thought that I had lost my mind, but I knew I had nothing to lose.
Fast forward to the present, I am sitting on the front porch of the cafe remembering those early times and that decision that changed my life.
The first person I hired is still with me today. Many of the staff have called Spoons their employer for over 10 years. A lot of customers have been with us on this journey as well. Without all of them Spoons Cafe would not be what it is today.
We have become a family. We hope that you join us.
