We are a worker-owned cooperative- that believes in cooperating to create delicious food for our community. We run our business democratically and provide a voice for our workers. Workers have the opportunity to become worker-owners and share in the responsibility, management, benefits and profits of business ownership.
We are part of a larger movement to create an economy and world that is based on cooperation, mutual support and community. Thank you for supporting this new community project!
We all have childhood memories of parents, teachers and others encouraging us to work together. A co-op is what “working together” looks like all grown up. From the outside, many co-ops look like any other business, since a co-op provides products and services like conventional businesses do. But it’s what goes on behind the scenes that makes it different.
A cooperative exists to serve its members, but what makes co-ops unique is that the members are also the owners. So, in addition to getting the products and services you need, you also have a say in the business decisions your cooperative makes. From Go.Coop
Rather than rewarding outside investors with its profits, a co-op returns surplus revenue to its members in proportion to how much they use the co-op. This democratic approach to business results in a powerful economic force that benefits the co-op, its members and the communities it serves.
