THE FIGS STORY
Katie founded 3 Little Figs when she was laid off from her career in broadcast production in late 2009. After a couple years of successful farmer’s markets, and with the experience of supplying other cafes with her baked goods, Katie was ready for a cafe of her own. Katie recruited her mother and sister to join in the fun, and the 3 Little Figs doors opened in October 2011. The business was rounded out by Katie’s husband, Andy, who traded his late nights touring in the music industry for early mornings behind the espresso machine. His passion for coffee complimented Katie’s passion for baking, and a family business was born!
THE HC STORY
FAST FORWARD TO 2017
WHEN THE OPPORTUNITY AROSE TO GROW INTO THE SPACE NEXT DOOR TO 3 LITTLE FIGS, WE JUMPED AT THE CHANCE! SPENDING OVER A YEAR TWEAKING DIFFERENT IDEAS AND DESIGNS, HEALTH CLUB WAS BORN.
A NOD TO THE 1980'S HEALTH CLUB FITNESS/ DIET BOOM (WITH MAYBE A LITTLE MIAMI SPRINKLED IN), WE CRAFTED A BRIGHT, SASSY, ENERGETIC LITTLE SPOT FOCUSING ON SOME NEW MENU IDEAS AND SMOOTHIES!
WE WANTED TO DO SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT YET COMPLIMENTARY TO 3 LITTLE FIGS, WHILE CONTINUING THE BASELINE OF GREAT SERVICE WITH A PERSONAL, FAMILY OWNED AND OPERATED, NEIGHBORHOOD VIBE.
WE WANTED TO CREATE A FUN WAY TO GIVE A NOD TO KATIE’S GREEK HERITAGE, AS WE DO AT 3 LITTLE FIGS. OUR COSMIC GREEK GODDESS OF HEALTH & WELL-BEING WAS CREATED BY LOCAL ARTIST LIZZIE SIEGEL, AKA TOFU SQUIRREL. REPRESENTING A STRONG, SMART, HIP, FUN GODDESS WHO LOVES FOOD AND LIVES IN A FRUIT AND VEGGIE TRAPPER KEEPER UNIVERSE. STRIKE A CLASSIC JANE FONDA POSE, GRAB A GALACTIC BLUEBERRY AND ENJOY AN OUT OF THIS WORLD SMOOTHIE ON A HOT PINK ASTRAL WAVE!
