February marks an anniversary for us. Four years ago Johny Lolita’s was born. The time has really flown by! First I would like to say Thank You to everyone who has made our business a success. And, a special Thanks to to those of you who have been with us since our humble beginnings out on Hwy. 28 in La Union. NM. Thank You!
Secondly, I would like to take this opportunity to address a question that we still received, at least once a week, all these years later. "Is there a Johnny?” For those that don’t know me, I am John…a.k.a. “Johnny”…as in Johnny Lolita’s. I am the guy that made your latte or prepared your lunch, set up, managed and tore down the the “Artisan” markets. I am the guy that ran around behind the scenes (and still does) doing “stuff”. I am the guy responsible for the majority of the sarcastic Social Media posts (and all of the offensive ones!). “No, I am not Shawn’s (a.k.a. “Lolita”) employee”. Although I do work for her and she is the boss of me, I like to think I have some sway in the business. After all, I’m the guy who said, “we cold SO run a Coffee Shop!”
Lolita is the creative force behind Johnny Lolita’s. The Master Roaster, baker, candy maker. The beautiful face of Johnny Lolita’s. I am still the guy moving around in the backgrounded snidely muttering comments and opinions.
“Yes, there IS a Johnny!”
