A word of thanks to & for the team:
Dear Oddly Correct,
I wish to express a word of appreciation & thanks to you, the team that makes the experience of coffee possible, through the brand lens of Oddly Correct. Thanks to you all, without whom, today would not be today.
To Sarah Kolsto, thanks for believing in me enough to drop the sanity (supposed) of a steady 8-5 work paycheck and walk into the unknown, eating bean dishes & transforming living spaces into fulfillment centers. Oh, and for keeping the books in order & taking care of our two wild children through the fog & flame of the last four years. You are an amazing woman.
To Michael Schroeder (Carlye & Eilley), thanks for being open to relocating from sunny NC, to be part of developing a dream & taking a chance to have a good time all the time while working with coffee. I am not the easiest person to work with, so thanks for your quiet grace & lack of response in my lower moments. Also, huge thanks and praise for your ascension into full-time coffee roaster for Oddly Correct. The coffee is tasting great, and I think your engineer mind is an asset to the coffee palettes of KCMO.
To Tyler Rovenstine (Jaime & Merle), thanks to you, for continuing to show up a while back, for taking a road trip to The Coffee Ethic with a stranger, and coming back with a decent idea of what you would be getting into as you would soon make us an offer we couldn’t refuse. Your attention to detail and odd coffee passions that wouldn’t have otherwise crossed our minds, are a welcome addition to the growing diversity & consequent unity we are experiencing as a company. Thanks to you too, for your patience & personal sacrifice in order to help something beautiful grow.
To Randy Taylor (Briana, Leila, Levi, Lincoln, phew!), what can be said about Randy? A lot can be said about Randy. I will mention here, that either space on Main Street which we have occupied, would not have been physically possible without the time & talent of Randy. The dude has boundless energy, skill & creativity- which he pours out on whomever is within reach and in need. We decided to bring him on staff for the 3940 build out, because he would have been doing the work anyhow! He also happens to have an operations mind, so he too is a welcome addition to our team.
So, when press occurs concerning Oddly Correct, the bald headed bearded face comes up on the page most often. Know that the real success is the team behind him & the customers in front of us.
Thanks Kansas City & beyond, for believing in us, digging what we do & why we do it & believing in our city enough to stay and see it to a better today & tomorrow.
