A DAY IN THE LIFE AT IZOLA.... Each team member at IZOLA is charged with the daily task of taking one photo a day and it's so much fun to see what they post to Slack. Much of what the team does here is not glamourous - they help keep the streets clean in front of the bakery, perform a daily vac and mop of the entire space, wash lots and lots of dishes...but ultimately, the team shares in the same objective, to create a special experience for our guests - whether that's in how they greet you, the care with which they craft the food we serve, or how they pack your order. And the team does this with what we call the IZOLA spirit - they care and are kind to one another, they work together as a team, they are quirky and we celebrate their unique selves. Jenny and I are super proud of the what this team accomplishes each and every day. As I scroll through their photos, it just brings me so much joy to see IZOLA through their lens. And the entire team shares in the tip pool, because we believe each and every member has a direct impact on the guest experience, from the dishwasher to Dojo to front of house and beyond. Thank you for showing the IZOLA team your appreciation for their kindness and hard work. Pre-orders are open now! Or just pop on by, no pre-ordering required. Have a pre-order and in a hurry? No problem! Double park downstairs and call us at (619) 289-8358, we'll run your order down to you with a smile. We call it IZOLA DRIVE-BY.
ROUND 2 CLOSING NEXT WEEK! Round 2 of our equity raise closes next Thursday, August 31st at midnight PST. If you've been wanting to join us as we change the way America thinks about sourdough and croissants, now's the time to take this journey with us.
If you have not yet joined us for an investor conversation, we'll be hosting an online Google Meet on Tuesday, August 29th at 7p. We will share why we are asking you, the IZOLA community, to join us in our $3.5M equity raise, where you can become an owner in IZOLA with as little as a $1k investment. IZOLA is powered by our community. Your dedication to this movement is what allows IZOLA to invest in American Manufacturing, create living wage jobs and expand IZOLA's social impact across Southern California.
*Please only invest an amount you would feel comfortable losing. Investing in private businesses involves risk. Though potential returns are designed to reflect that risk, there is a possibility that you will lose your entire investment.
WOOT WOOT! Great news. IZOLA has advanced to Phase IIa for a $6,000,000 Cal Competes grant. The California Competes Grant Program is an amazing opportunity from the state that helps encourage companies to grow right here in California. If we are awarded this grant, we will be able to create over 170 new Living Wage+ jobs right here in San Diego over the next 5 years. We are definitely the underdogs in this competition...previous awardees include Netflix, Applied Materials, and Nvidia. Super stoked to just move to Phase IIa amongst companies of this caliber. And we are incredibly grateful for the local support we've received with our application. Just like with most things that we do here at IZOLA, we are new at this so we're learning along the way! If you have experience navigating this process, we'd love to hear your tips and sage words of advice! Email me!
