Coffee Shop Theme :: Summer Adventure!

Every season….we dream up a new theme for our cafe. I love my creative buddy [Carrie Rowe] who is equally excited about the interior of Red Caboose as I am. True friend- right there! I love our local flower shop on our street too- Cara is always brightening up our space with fresh flowers!

This summers theme is ADVENTURE! You’ll find elements of summertime festivities….whether its camping, picnicking, hiking through a forrest, fishing, golfing, canoeing or traveling around the world…’ll be reminded of these moments in life, inside our shop!

Two years ago we posted a US & WORLD map and had our guests pin where they were ADVENTURING from….we did this again this year and it’s so amazing to see how far people have come to visit our cozy little town- Whitefish, Montana!

We’ve got a new baker who is whipping up some fabulous pastries for us….if you follow me on Instagram, you’ll see lots of these treats + heart filled lattes!

Here’s a peek inside the Red Caboose…..

Life, Liberty & Cold Brew

Our staff… amazing. We truly are blessed to have such a solid team at our cafe. I love how passionate they are about people, fashion….and coffee, of course.

We never mentioned a word about dressing up for their 4th of July shift……but I was stoked to see each of them arrive in their holiday flair. I had my camera on hand and just had to pull them away to do a little shoot around the corner! How cute are they?!?

Red Caboose Photoshoot

We just launched our Red Caboose website, but I wanted to share a few more images that I love so much from the photoshoot we did with Jeremiah & Rachel!

Jeremiah & Rachel are local photographers who have become sweet friends to us….and who also support our little shop. They love coffee. They are creative. We are a perfect fit. They contacted me about doing a collaboration and we just so happened to be dreaming up ideas for a website- so we decided this would be the project. We had a blast with them… was an honor to have this season in our life documented. These photos mean so much to us.

They captured the core of our shop- the details, the community within our staff and of course, little Ezra. I absolutely love the Red Caboose. I’ve never questioned how special our place is, but these images really do remind me how magical things are inside the four walls. I pinch myself daily….I really get to own and operate a fantastic frozen yogurt + coffee shop in Whitefish, Montana! God is awesome. So good.

Thank you so much, Jeremiah & Rachel. We adore you guys. Thank you for loving us so well…and blessing us with your talent.

Red Caboose Website!

I am so excited to announce the unveiling of the Red Caboose website!! We have been utilizing Facebook since we opened our doors in 2011, but felt it was time to have a personal site….that reflects who we are and shares a bit of our story.

A huge thank you to Tyler Thorney, who designed the site for us. He was awesome to collaborate with and we are really happy with our site. Simple, with a bit of whimsy was the goal…and he executed it well! If you are looking for a designer….he’s your guy! Check out his work here.

We also want to thank Jeremiah & Rachel for hanging out with us for a day….and photographing our shop & our staff! Jeremiah and Rachel are amazing photographers and sweet friends of ours. They are creative and have a passion for coffee- so it was a natural fit! The majority of the photos on our site were shot by them. Check out their work- be inspired!

Without further ado….go and check out our website. My favorite page is “Our Story.” Our employee Mikey had a blast writing all of our bio’s. So fun!

Thank you all for supporting our adventure!

Red Caboose Turns 2!

Last week our cafe turned TWO years old…and yesterday we celebrated with FREE cake batter + sprinkles for our little town to enjoy! We definitely don’t take this milestone for granted [our first dollar that we made is up on the wall and reminds us of where we started]. Everyday is a new day and every single person that walks through our doors is a blessing.

We created an environment that we believe in. We serve products that we 100% stand behind. And our vision is simple… love people, while creating an inspiring environment where people can dream bigger dreams and spend quality time with family and friends. Frozen yogurt and Coffee are just the cherries on top!

It seems like yesterday we were celebrating our grand opening and it was awesome to celebrate this day with many of those same faces, plus new ones. We have been supported in such a big way and we are thankful for this. We took a huge leap of Faith when we moved from Nashville, TN to Whitefish, MT to open this shop [there are many links that take you through our journey if you click on “grand opening”]…..and know without a doubt that we are planted in this community for a purpose [far beyond what we could ever imagine].

We just wanted to THANK YOU. Whether you are a local, who frequents our cafe or a friend, a family member or someone who saw our episode of House Hunters and reached out to us with an encouraging word…..we appreciate your support.
