Above and Beyond!

Our menu at IZOLA is simple - we specialize in croissants and sourdough and only serve what we LOVE to eat. With each recipe, we've tested to find the best tasting ingredients (we tested 17 different butters alone!), we measure the results of various methods (think time, temp, mixing speed) to find what returns the best results, and we explore various proofing and baking methods to land on the right loft, color and texture (we cook our croissants hard and deep for a crispy texture and deeper flavor). Flavor is of course super important, but it's also about that texture and mouthfeel that create the whole experience. Picture sinking your teeth into layers of flaky goodness, feeling that shattering crunch (oh how we love how messy our croissants are to eat!), enjoying the soft and fluffy interior, and savoring the chewiness (what Jenny calls "QQ") that makes every bite oh-so-amazing. It's like a little adventure for your taste buds! So, are you ready for a seriously yummy journey? Pre-orders are open now! And a special heads up for this week - Jenny and I are headed outta town to see our son Sacha and hang with fam in the peaceful wilds of Montana. So for this week only, same day pre-orders will NOT be available, as we allow our team the time to focus their energies on providing the best experience to our guests rather than managing our online inventory every 20 minutes...So now's the time to get your pre-orders in, they will close each morning just prior to 8a.

ABOVE AND BEYOND When we interview candidates for positions here at IZOLA, we focus in on traits we cannot teach - are you kind, compassionate, are your reliable and hardworking? Because we can teach you the rest... Working at IZOLA is not for everyone - we hold the team to a very high standard because we truly believe they are more than capable of those exacting standards. We expect our team to be punctual, efficient, thoughtful, and communicative. We provide feedback...often...every single day, not because we are trying to criticize, but because we are constantly looking to improve ourselves and the way we approach the business. So when we recognize a team member for going ABOVE AND BEYOND, that is saying a lot because the team already performs at such a high level. A huge CONGRATULATIONS to team member Monica, for being recognized with our Above and Beyond award and bonus this past week. Monica is our newest Baker. She came to us with a drive and dedication to learn and contribute. In just under 3 months, Monica has become an instrumental and reliable member of the Bake team. Being a baker at IZOLA requires speed, focus, efficiency and attention to detail - three timers could be going off all at once, while a batch of Tahitian Vanilla Knots need to be dipped and a rack full of croissants need to be checked on to see how far along they are on their proof. All while working against the clock to feed those ovens as quickly as possible - serving food hot-from-the-oven means that the more efficient we can be with keeping our ovens fed, the more mouths we can feed! After mastering the bake, she began cross-training in our Dojo and Sourdough departments, to rave reviews from both our Dojo and Sourdough leads. When we needed help with producing our Almond Croissants last week, she stepped right in and impressed us all with her command of the task and how much she accomplished on her own in a single day. Not only that, but with a team member down, she took on additional Bake shifts. She makes it look effortless when we know it is not. Her commitment to her teammates, to the quality of her work, and to the IZOLA customers is beyond admirable. We are so fortunate and grateful that you're a part of our IZOLA family Monica!

We'll have some hot-from-the-oven croissants and sourdough to snack on and delicious beverages to enjoy as we gather.
