October 15, 2013 // Franchising.com // BOULDER, CO – Based in Boulder, Colorado, one of the communities heaviest hit by recent flooding, Smiling Moose Deli witnessed the devastation from the fast-rising waters first hand. Because of the massive geographic area this storm covered, Smiling Moose Deli employees on the Front Range found themselves displaced from their homes or faced with extensive property damage.
"Being a part of the solution was a ‘no-brainer’, we knew it was the right thing to do," said Chris Lynne, Brand Manager. So, with the help of Mo the Moose, they got serious about a sweet deal called ‘Cookies for Colorado’. Without hesitation, nearly every franchise owner, across the country agreed to participate – eager for the opportunity to help return local Colorado communities back to normal!
For every cookie sold between now and October 31, 2013, a portion will be donated to Boulder and Broomfield Counties’ Community Food Share, Inc. This well respected food program has specifically committed to extend their efforts for long-term recovery and funds will allow food banks to ensure a sustainable source of food for displaced community members and those impacted economically by the floods.
These fresh-baked cookies are the perfect finish to any of the hearty sandwiches, homemade soups and salads offered at Smiling Moose Deli, but they also serve as the perfect afternoon snack! We hope our guests will be encouraged to pick up a dozen to take home, or bring back to the office to share, rebuilding Colorado one cookie at a time.
Smiling Moose Deli serves up the fresh quality and flavor of a deli with a wry smile. Smiling Moose is absolutely serious about offering innovative hand-crafted sandwiches, homemade soups, fresh-baked cookies and more. Smiling Moose isn't a secret, but for everyone who finds us it’s a welcome discovery. Stop by today and enjoy our delicious, Rocky Mountain deli-style food...served fresh with a side of fun!
