The Todoroffs Are Back

Juicy Kitchen's ownership change is off.

by Eric Olsen

From the December, 2017 issue

Juicy Kitchen founders Susan and George Todoroff are once again running day-to-day operations after a planned ownership transfer fell through.

"We decided to step back in, at least for the time being, because there are aspects of the business we really love," says Susan. "We love our customers and the community we've built around the cafe, and we have some great employees."

The Todoroffs say their immediate plans are "to continue serving creative, healthy breakfast and lunch items in a welcoming, friendly atmosphere." They will also continue to supply wholesale customers such as Sweetwaters, Roos Roast, Argus Farm Stop, and others, and do a "limited amount" of catering.

"I've spent years forming relationships with our staff and customers, and it's great to reconnect with them," says Susan. As to how long they'll stay, she says, "We are giving it six months to a year to see how things go." They plan to give more autonomy in running the place to their daughter, Nadia, and the other managers and long-term staff. "It would be great to turn over the cafe to them someday."

The Todoroffs say they enjoyed time off but are happy to be back. "It's like having a kid. You miss it when it's gone, then when it's back it's a bit of a headache. But ultimately it's your baby."

Juicy Kitchen, 1506 N. Maple. 585-5562. Mon.-Fri. 7 a.m.-3 p.m., Sat. & Sun. 8 a.m.-3 p.m.
