Here’s Why Ellsworth’s Flexit Café Has Not Reopened … Yet – q1065.fm
No blame. Just facts.
First the story about why the move. First, the building that Flex was located in, The Grind Building, is owned by the Desert Harvest company. They make nutritional supplements and need all the space in the original building that housed Flexit. Here is the story of the original move.
The original prediction was that they would be up and running in the new location, 3 doors down, by Labor Day.
Obviously, Labor Day has come and gone. So has Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day.
But the latest update on when they will open at the new location has been updated to by the end of this month. Here’s the story from The Ellsworth American.
Tradesmen only have so many hours in each day, and they are being stretched with repairs, maintenance and new construction. Plumbers and electricians and carpenters are all needed in too many places at the same time. And that is the cause of the delay in opening the new Flexit.
When the café does reopen there will be a couple of changes. Good time to mix things up a bit. Some additional items will be added, some will be subtracted from the menu from the former location just yards away.
An addition to the menu will be more hot items adding to the variety of cold sandwiches Flex it is known for.
Look forward to the updated menu and the ‘vibe’ of hanging at the Flexit Café for a sandwich, a cup of coffee, or the new hot food items.
And if owner Paul Markosiaan needs a cup of sugar he can go next door to borrow it. Finn’s Irish Pub is next door and is owned by Lorena Stearns. They are married.
Who says married couples can’t work side by side? Especially when they are in separate buildings.
