VFC Deli Scaling Down Before We Scale Up! #wecantwait

To prepare for the ongoing construction and disruption of workspace during our remodel, the VFC Deli will be downsizing some programs in order to consolidate our supplies and packaging while maintaining a safe kitchen for all of our excellent staff. Here’s what it means for our customers:

  • Starting mid-August, the Hot Bar has been operating Monday through Friday. Saturday is now dedicated to whole roasted chickens starting at 11:30am (until gone). Sunday Brunch (8am-1pm) continues to be the same as usual, along with whole roasted chickens out on the Hot Bar at 1:30pm (until gone).

  • Bakery and Deli will reduce the number of options in our grab-n-go case, while still focusing on our customer favorites as well as gluten free options. 

  • The Barista Counter is creating a new menu to reduce sandwich offerings and drink sizes to help with speed of service, while reducing our footprint with packaging and supplies. Method to the madness: look for cold sandwiches in the grab-n-go case while hot sandwiches/quesadillas can be ordered at the Barista Counter!

These small changes make a big impact on the amount of space we need to operate while we undergo this exciting remodel of our store. As we get closer to our grand re-opening, we will have the opportunity to scale our production back up! We can't wait to not only offer more variety but also new exciting services, like: smoothies, expanded drinks and coffees, slices meats and cheeses, and full-service prepared salads.

Thank you for your patience and continued support of the VFC Deli. We appreciate your business and #wecantwait to showcase more incredible food and drinks in the future.

 

P.S. We will still offer a deli drink and sandwich feature each month. They are posted near the Deli Window. Pumpkin spice lovers: be sure to try a Pumpkin Spice Latte in October!
