Never Business As Usual.
After both having separate careers, Burt Adams and Christy Ouei wanted something they could do together and for that something to have a purpose. Late in the summer of 2018, they found a location near SAU that they thought fit their vision, and after a short negotiation, it was theirs.
The whole year prior, they had been trying to come up with “what Magnolia needed.” Finally, it was decided that craft beer, pizza, wings, coffee, small-batch ice cream from Arkansas, live events and music IS just what the town needed.
Any given Wednesday night sees the placed packed. Packed… on a Wednesday. So maybe they are on the right track. Throw in their desire to be environmentally sustainable, and that their employees are also the recipient of an amazing experience so they can pass it onto customers, and it seems like a winning combination.
Their second location is set to open in late fall 2021 in the former Griffin Restaurant inside the Murphy Arts District in El Dorado. The third location has been purchased, but the business model hasn’t been released. Stay tuned!
