New Artisan Cafe to be Unveiled

The Owensboro Convention Center, proudly managed by Spectra, is pleased to announce the grand opening of the newly remodeled Artisan Café by SFG on Wednesday, November 11.  A brief media conference will be held at noon followed by the opportunity to enjoy free samples of the new menu until 2:00 pm and then again from 4:00 pm until 6:00 pm.  “The community is invited to stop by during their lunch break or after work to experience the new Café’” said Dean Dennis, General Manager of Spectra.

In conjunction with the grand opening of the Artisan Café, the Owensboro Convention Center and Specialty Foods Group are offering a unique fundraising opportunity to local non-profit organizations entitled “Make it Count Mondays”.  Each Monday, a local organization will be randomly chosen and featured on the Owensboro Convention Center’s Facebook page.  Additionally, 10% of the Café’s sales on that day will directly benefit the selected organization.

“SFG is proud to partner with the Owensboro Convention Center on this exciting venture.  The new Café will not only allow us to showcase our large variety of delicious locally made products but, more importantly, it provides a wonderful opportunity to support our community and those in need”, said Ric Herrera, SFG Vice President.  “We are thrilled with the Artisan concept and encourage everyone to come experience this new downtown eatery”.

The new Artisan Café by SFG is dedicated to providing fresh food using quality ingredients including SFG’s Kentucky Legend Ham, Kentuckian Gold Turkey and Field Bacon among others.  The Café is open Monday through Friday from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm and during special events at the Convention Center.  In addition to daily lunch specials, the menu features delicious sandwiches, garden fresh salad bar and wraps as well as an array of house baked pastries, specialty coffee drinks and more.
