It's Baaaack!!!



Our IZOLA Morning Bun is a favorite way to start the day. Paired with a hot cappuccino and I'm ready to take on the day. Our morning buns are crafted from our same 4 day process croissant dough - made with butter from Normandy, organic flour from Utah and organic milk. For the filling, we add cinnamon, organic sugar and the zest from about 1/2 an heirloom orange for each morning bun. Our Dojo team rolls them up and they proof overnight. In the morning, our Bake team gives the Morning Buns a little extra bump of steam and heat before baking them off. Coming out of the ovens, the filling is now carmelized, creating a slightly gooey bottom. Our bakers then give them a little extra dusting of organic sugar before we serve them hot from the oven to you! While they don't last long in our household, if you have an extra Morning Bun or two, store them in a sealed plastic bag to keep them from drying out. To reheat, just pre-heat your oven (a toaster oven also works great) to 200° F. Morning Buns can dry out quickly, so you'll want to give them a quick spritz of water (just run it quickly under the sink, trust me!) before placing them in the oven. Bake until warm, about 10 minutes. Pre-orders are open now. We also hold half of our inventory each day for walk-ins, so pre-orders aren't required - you can just pop on by. 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.




IT'S BAAACK! For those of you who popped by the bakeshop this last week, you were amongst the first to hear that coffee is back at IZOLA! We soft launched this past week to refine our process and are now excited to officially announce that coffees and teas are back on the menu. Enjoy a cappuccino made with beans from Cafe Moto and grass fed organic milk. Or try our Iced Potion - a refreshingly herbaceous iced tea made in house with peppermint tea, honey, fresh mint and thyme and lemon.




CELEBRATING COMMUNITY This past weekend I had the opportunity to walk in the Pride Parade for the first time. Leading up to the parade, I was excited, anxious, scared...I didn't know what to expect. And man, am I glad I did it. To see HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of people come out to support the LGBTQIA+ community - it was restorative...and I got to see the best of humanity that morning. Pride to me is simply a celebration of love and of community. It's a time when we come together to embrace each person's individuality whether you are gay, straight or anywhere in between. We get to dress how we want to dress, love who we want to love. We are kind to each other.




COME JOIN US! Join Jenny and me next Wednesday July 26th at 7p on Google Meet as we share why we started IZOLA at the start of a global pandemic, what has kept us going each day as our little project has grown to over 30 employees and over $1M in revenue, and what our vision is for the future. The day we snapped this photo Jenny and I were stoked that we had enough demand to fill almost a full rolling rack of croissants for the day. We were still making all of the croissants ourselves, pulling late nights on the weekends, driven by the joy we saw on the faces of our customers and the kindness we received from them. Fast forward to today, our passionate, hardworking Dojo team is working day and night 7 days a week so that we can bake about 1000 croissants a day, served hot from the oven. And it's still not enough - we're selling out each day and that's not what we envision for the IZOLA experience. We are raising funds now, which will allow us to increase our production by 20x! We aim to change the way America thinks about croissants and sourdough. The IZOLA way. Hot from the oven, great hospitality, amazing quality. Justice. Investing in American Green Manufacturing. Creating careers. Improving the quality of our bread and croissants. Planning to open 12 IZOLAs in SoCal. Hard? Yes. But so exciting to invest in American manufacturing and in our community. Believe in what we do? Join us. To learn more, RSVP for our Wednesday call and drop by for a minute and say hi or stay the whole time. It's a fun time and super casual. We'll share with you where we've been, our plans for the future, and why we are raising over $3M in the next year. Never invested before? Not to worry! It's super simple. *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.
