The Factory | This Week
“Our greatest happiness does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us, but is always the result of a good conscience, good health, occupation and freedom in all just pursuits.” – Thomas Jefferson
Here is what we have going on this week, Monday, June 29 – Saturday, July 4:
Please keep in mind that in observance of Independence Day, The Factory Store + Café, the Alabama Chanin offices, and our production studio will be closed Friday, July 3 – Saturday, July 4.
Join us again on Monday, July 6 for a morning filled with sewing, coffee, and inspiration at First Mondays. Please bring your own fabric and notions.
Monday – Thursday, 9:00am – 5:00pm
Stop by any weekday at 2:00pm for a guided tour of our space, including The Factory, the Alabama Chanin production and design studio, and Building 14.
Join us for lunch at The Factory Café this week and enjoy a new menu every day. This week’s menu features our popular White BBQ Chicken Sandwich as well as our Fatback Italian Sandwich which is made using ethically-raised pork from The Fatback Pig Project.
Be sure to join us on Saturdays for Brunch featuring seasonal choices that highlight products from local and regional farms and purveyors.
Also don’t forget to take a look in our cooler—stocked with homemade ready-to-go items like our customer-favorite pimento cheese.
We offer freshly baked whole cakes as well. Our cakes are made from scratch, fresh from the oven. Please provide 24 hours’ notice when placing an order.
Custom catering is now available for all events and occasions. Work directly with our head chef, Zach Chanin, and the Alabama Chanin team to create a menu tailored to your needs.
