Well, 2009 was certainly a BIG year for us at Farley's East! The year began with the construction plans being approved by the Alameda County Health Department and then a surprisingly quick approval by the City of Oakland. From there, we were underway with construction, working fast and furious to open ASAP.
Speed forward to Thursday, June 18, 2009 at 11am and you have Farley's East open for business! Looking back, we have learned so much, grown so much and look forward to continued growth and learning in 2010.
I have to say that we have been overwhelmed with the support we have received from the neighborhood. The countless "thank you's" for just being open has been tremendous. Prior to opening, when we told people we would be open on the weekends, they said we were crazy. Six months later, we have a bustling weekend business all day long. The neighborhood has made this happen and for that, we are extremely grateful.
The Farley's East team wishes everyone a happy, healthy, prosperous and caffeinated new year!
