July 21, 2017: Clover Fast Food, Inc.: Best bread yet

NEWS BITES - PRIVATE COMPANIES

Chris hasn't slept in a few days, but he can finally rest, because he's pulled off something amazing. And it's something you can all taste today.

We are baking our bread overnight. We're thinking this will have a huge impact on freshness. It will also mean that the HUB is a lot cooler during the day. The pita oven gets up to 900 degrees internally in order to make those pitas pop.

If you're by today, tell us what you think of the new bread. And if you're up late at night, peek into the windows of CloverHUB, 1075 Cambridge Street and see the Clover night kitchen.

SECTION 2 PRESS RELEASES: 2017

April 29: Clover Fast Food, Inc: Yoga, poker, 9 meetings and needing to lie down

The meeting room in the basement of CloverHUB had been transformed into a poker den, complete with clamp lights over the tables and steel cases full of poker chips. Andrew, Clover's training manager, had turned this week's GM meeting into a poker match, an activity that most of the GMs. were unfamiliar with. This sort of thing happens once a month as a reminder of how it feels to learn (and potentially be bad at) a new thing.

Jazz music blasted in the background, although at one point Ayr put on the Moana soundtrack. There were snacks (chips and dip, chocolate-covered almonds) and prizes (Joe won a Baratza coffee grinder!) So what was I doing there?

I got to be the first ever person to shadow Ayr for a day. He wants to roll this out as something that Clover leadership (team leaders, SCLs, etc.) can sign up for regularly, and I was a guinea pig for the whole thing. Here's what the day looked like:

7am - Yoga (Breathing Room in Central Square) 8am - Meeting with HBS students 9am - Meeting with Ethan (systems engineer & head of IT) to go over updates to the Clover App 10am - Meeting with Rob (area manager & creator of the Baja Mushroom Sandwich) and Harvard on construction progress for CloverHSC 11am - Meeting with Lucia (director of communications) about designs for compostable packaging 12pm - Lunch with Gary (realtor from DC) - we had Daikon Radish sandwiches + Brothy Mushroom soups 1pm - Brief meet-up with investor 1:30pm - Meeting with CloverKND leadership about ways to improve operations and customer experience 2pm - Food Dev Meeting (where the Mushroom Scrapple sandwich first appeared) 3pm - People meetings (I did not go to these) 4pm - General manager meeting (replaced by poker game) 6:30pm - Dinner with some of the GMs

Every meeting was on a completely different aspect of Clover's business' And Ayr completely immersed himself in each of these aspects before moving on and completely immersing himself in the next.

July 12: Clover Fast Food, Inc.: Zucchini!

That's Martina, who leads up Food Development at Clover, at Next Barn Over in Hadley. She was telling us about her grandmother's recipe for a zucchini flower pancake. If you see her, ask her about it. The flowers are a precursor to the zucchini themselves.

Zucchini is hitting the menu hard. Stop by for Zucchini Fritters after 2pm. We grate the zucchini into a batter, fry into little pillows, and toss with sugar. You'll also see Zucchini in salads and on a Zucchini Sandwich, launching soon.

July 07: Clover Fast Food, Inc.: Strawberry micro season

Strawberry Lemonade, Strawberry Soda, Strawberries after 2pm each day with cream and sugar.

Our strawberries are from Joe Czajkowski Farm in North Hadley. The farm used to grow tobacco, now it grows strawberries!

The berries this year are really sweet and delicious but the season is short (2-3 weeks at the most). Come be a part of it while you can!

July 07: Clover Fast Food, Inc.: Testing hummus bowls at CloverKND Tuesday

We have these beautiful chickpeas from Connecticut and Montana that we've been turning into a silky hummus. We've been inspired by some of the hummus shops in NYC.

And we're thinking they might be a really neat way to highlight local produce. We tasted a few at Food Dev two weeks back, took some of the feedback from that meeting, and we'll be having a Hummus Pop Up to begin testing them out in the wild.

Come by CloverKND Tuesday at 3pm and taste our first pass at Clover hummus bowls. We'll have a local squash bowl, a Rhode Island Mushroom bowl, a chickpea bowl, an Egg and Eggplant bowl, and some fun add-ons. We'll have 50 bowls to sell, first-come, first-serve.

If you come, we'll ask you to fill out a survey in exchange for a little prize. Please also share any feedback on social media using #cloverbowls.
