Re: “About Execution

Create Cafe’s mission has always focused on providing the highest quality ingredients free from harmful substances reported repeatedly by the media as detrimental to both our health and environment (sodium nitrates, antibiotics, trans fats etc.). This is no small task in an business environment that is small business vs. chains with huge marketing budgets which aim to give the highest calorie content for the lowest price. We provide a something-for-everyone selection in an environment that is fun, eclectic and very friendly. We invite you back to notice the 20 hula hoops by the entrance, TV’s with the the food channel and an old Peter Sellers Movie, the inside and outside kids play area so adults can enjoy a beer while their kids play, and the “no two-chairs, tables, lighting fixtures, alike atmosphere. Try the wooa chicken wrap (biggest seller) and all of the organic, preservative free, all natural, no sugar ingredients options on our menu! We make sure you don’t have to be a healthnut to love our menu.

Create Cafe & Catering has grown and thrived as a local Tucson business since 1999 because there are enough Tucsonans who understand and appreciate the difference between us and our competitors. They know the difference between quality vs. quantity. We have the tastiest thick cut bacon, but without sodium nitrates (a known carcinogen) and preservatives. Find another restaurant in Tucson who serves this! Surely you have become informed, as the foodie you must be, of the harmful substances being put into our foods, the child obesity rates and rapid growth of diabetes. The roastbeef the TW reporter complained about was not as big as our competitor. This is true. But our roastbeef is all natural, is of the highest quality, has no preservatives, msg, or nitrites. We also are not interested in inappropriate portion sizes which encourage overeating.The staff at Create Cafe & Catering have families and feel that we should not feed the public items we would not feed our own children.

A large part of our business is our school lunch program catering to Tucson charter and private schools. We have a responsibility to provide an alternative to the fast food that so many schools use as their vendors. This is not a big money maker, it is a labor of love and our way of giving back to the community.

Yes TW you can get bigger sandwiches with cheap meat. It is cheaper to eat products filled with governmant subsidized corn products, preservatives and chemicals. However, we all pay in the end. Sooner or later the health effects catch up and hit our pocket books at the doctors offices.

If you are interested in doing some good for Tucson while you are critiquing these may be of interest to you:
The Omnivores Dilemma—by Michael Pollan, Fast Food Nation—Film, Food Inc.—Film, Super Size Me, etc.

Stay Happy and Healthy,
Lauri Kaye


P.S. As Nicholas Kristoff from the NY Times 8/23/09 so eloquently wrote, “We are not a calorie factory without any soul.”
