Co-Op Hot Food Bar is Back

The People’s Food Co-op is the only full-service downtown grocery store in Ann Arbor. Marketing/Outreach Coordinator Troy Clarke says, “We brought back our self-serve hot food bar after a two-year hiatus. It seems as if a lot of folks in the area were ready to work the co-op’s hot bar back into their lunchtime routine, and so far, the feedback from our customers has been strong. The hot bar menu will be rotating and updated weekly on our website. Jamie, our new prepared foods manager, was very excited to roll out the hot bar with simple, traditional recipes that span cultures and cuisines.”

            The hot bar offers Indian, American, Mexican and Asian food. The prepared foods department also has breakfast burritos, soups, desserts and drinks. “It’s been great seeing all the positive reactions to the reopening of the hot bar,” says Clarke. “Now that we have that back up and running, opening the café back up is next on our list. We’re really excited to bring back the option for folks to start their day at our full-service coffee bar.”
