Downtown Snoqualmie welcomed a brand new business to the area on Tuesday, Sept. 5, with the official ribbon cutting for Heirloom Cookshop on the corner of SE River Street and Falls Avenue SE.
Kristen Schumacher, the owner of Heirloom Cookshop, welcomed citizens, Chamber of Commerce members, other business owners and Snoqualmie Mayor Matt Larson to the restaurant a few days before it opened for welcoming party and ribbon cutting ceremony.
Heirloom Cookshop officially opens for business on Saturday, Sept. 9, and will offer soup, sandwiches, coffee, and more every Tuesday through Saturday.
Schumacher said she will not only serve food, but will also host classes and hands-on workshops for those wanting to improve their cooking skills.
At the ribbon cutting Schumacher thanked all of the people who helped support her in starting the new business.
“Thank you to so many of you who have been so loving, so supportive, always there for me,” she said. “I’m overwhelmed with joy and just thank you. This business has been a dream of mine for a long time, but I couldn’t have done it without so many people who helped me.”
