Can you say excited? I can and I have the pics to prove it! Yesterday Island Indulgences, LLC, yes I said LLC had the opportunity of celebrating with the Englewood community and the team members of the Whole Foods Englewood store. I was so excited to see all of the hard work that the Whole Foods Market put into the event. The team members were genuinely interested in hearing our stories. I even met a guy who lives less than 0.5 miles from where I grew up. Having the chance to share my story with him and his colleagues was very humbling. I cannot forget to mention all of the new suppliers that were there sharing their stories and products with the team and the community. I was just as much inspired with them as they were with me! How could I forget the media attention and the visit from Mayor Rahm Emmanuel and the Mayor of London, that too was an unexpected treat. So get ready we are eleven days away from the Grand Opening of the Whole Foods Englewood Store. This is an area that has previously been identified as a food desert! So much good is going on in Englewood make sure you're there to see it!
