|Heidi's plans to open doors at beginning of the year|
|Written by Chris Lee|
Heidi Spitz is getting excited as she plans to open the doors of Heidi’s Wednesday, Jan. 2.
Hoping that paperwork becomes finalized, Spitz will open the doors to the public at her 112 W. Denver St. location. The shop is located at the former Buzzz Stop.
Spitz used to work at Buzzz Stop but a serious motor vehicle accident in July 2011 took her away from the business.
She has spent the last five months working at The Oak Tree and has had many people suggest she reopen the local coffee shop.
“The community kind of made me decide there is still a need for it,” Spitz said last Friday, Dec. 14.
Spitz is known for her delicious cakes and baking from home and wants to move that back into town.
Once the doors are open, customers will see a menu fairly similar to what the Buzzz Stop used to offer. The new owner said the decorations will have changed a bit inside.
Buzzz Stop closed its doors in March of this year so there hasn’t been much work to get it back up and running. A good cleaning and a few visits from the health department and Heidi’s will be open for business, according to the new owner.
As for lunch, wraps and paninis will continue to be available and Spitz said she plans to add other items to the lunch menu highlighting the different seasons throughout the year.
Spitz said her daughter Makayla will help her to begin with and another employee will be in each day to help cover the lunch hour.
Spitz is excited to return to the social aspect of the place. She said it’s a great place for people to gather in a relaxed atmosphere to visit over a snack and cup of coffee.
Spitz said the facility will be available for birthday parties, office meetings and other functions. She is also offering gift certificates throughout the holiday season. She can be reached on her cell phone at 580-9549 prior to the opening for those interested in obtaining gift certificates.
Once open, Heidi’s may be reached at 854-CAKE (2253). Doors will be open Monday-Friday from 7 a.m.-6 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from 8 a.m.-1 p.m.
Spitz grew up in Gunnison and attended college at Northeastern Junior College in Sterling. She moved to Holyoke 18 years ago. Spitz and her husband Pat have two children, Coleton and Makayla. Prior to working at the Buzzz Stop, Spitz helped with the family farming and ranching operation. She enjoys team roping, crafts, decorating and spending time with her family.
