Congratulations to NORMS Restaurants and Urbane Cafe on expanding their brands to new areas! This past week marked the beginning of new chapters for our two clients as NORMS started the construction for its 18th location in El Monte, and Urbane Cafe opened its 14th cafe in Santa Maria
On Thursday, January 18, we took a trip to El Monte for the groundbreaking of NORMS’ 18th location. The event was attended by a near 100 people who were excited to see the Southern California staple make its first mark in the city with attendance from El Monte Mayor Andre Quintero, Councilman Juventino J. Gomez, Councilwoman Norma Macias, Councilwoman Victoria Martinez, and Councilman Jerry Velasco.
Then, that following weekend, Urbane Cafe started strong before it even opened with its three pre-Opening fundraisers that benefited Boys & Girls Club Santa Maria Valley, Delta High School and the Special Olympics. The three fundraisers generated over $14,000 in total over the weekend. This led into Monday as the new cafe had a line out the door all day as the first 50 guests received special giveaways with their sandwiches and salads. But, that wasn’t all as Urbane Cafe continued with 5 Days of Celebration for Santa Maria that highlighted teachers, firefighters, police officers, students, and neighbors within the community.
Overall, it was an incredible week for our clients, and we’re excited to see these two expand further in 2018.
