Redamtè is going through some pretty big changes in the next few months. As our customers and friends, we want you to know what’s happening.
We will be closing our café doors at 449 State St. on Saturday, May 31st.
The decision to close at the beginning of the summer was an incredibly difficult, but necessary one in order for us to move forward in our mission in the long term: to engage and empower individuals, organizations and communities to participate in restorative entrepreneurship. It has been an amazing few years of serving the downtown and campus community with high quality, local, and fairly sourced products as well as facilitating a variety of educational and community building events. It has been a great joy to get to know so many of you, not just as regulars but also as friends, and we will certainly miss seeing you on a regular basis this summer in the café.
So what’s next?
We have been talking seriously with another location in the Campus/State St. community for the past few months. While nothing is certain at this point, we are working hard to make this possibility a reality. This new location would be an amazing opportunity for Redamtè to reach a wider community and have a greater impact in our mission. With this new possibility our timeline for reopening would be sometime early in 2015.
In the meantime, we will continue to give updates through social media and our website about how things are progressing. We also plan to continue many of our events such as Defining Social Entrepreneurship and Recipes for Change with Slow Food UW in other downtown locations as well as other new event possibilities.
How can you help?
Stay in touch!
Keep following Redamtè on Facebook and Twitter and sign up for our email list to get the latest updates on how things are progressing. Also, since we’ll be revamping a number of things with the reopening, we will seek yourinput on how to do it best.
Come on out to events!
A great way to stay involved this summer is to come out to the different events we will be offering. These events will be posted on Facebook, Twitter and our website.
Stop by the rest of May!
You can help Redamtè in the transition process by helping us finish strong here at 449 State St. A strong finish to the year will improve our ability to create a new space to better serve you when we reopen. That, and we’d love to see as much of you as possible!
And lastly, keep making change a part of your day - every day.
Thank you again for all your support over the past few years. It really has been a joy and honor for us to serve you and the Madison community.
