From a kickstarter campaign:
Hey there! We’re Broodjes & Bier, a Dutch-inspired sandwich start-up working to make it in Washington, DC. Our dream is to build a brick-and-mortar location where you and yours can enjoy a fresh broodje (sandwich) and cold bier (beer), as if you were sitting canal side in Amsterdam.
So, what’s a ‘broodje’ anyway?
‘Broodje’ is dutch for sandwich. Our broodjes are focused on utilizing fresh, high quality produce, breads, and, particularly, dutch cheeses. Where others use lettuce, we use arugula. Where some concede to Muenster, we opt for 18-month aged Goudas. We keep whole legs of prosciutto at the ready, and are intimately aware of how many freshly baked ciabatta rolls we can stack in our Timbuk2s.
Up to this point, we’ve made and tasted at least 15 delicious and broodje-ful sandwiches. While we have a menu we’re confident will dominate a brick and mortar location, that’s a big leap for a group of youngins’ like ourselves. So, to enter the space in a more responsible fashion, we’re working on a few projects.
We’re putting together a pop-up dinner series where we can serve our food in a sit down fashion as well as, BROODJE CO., a prepackaged sandwich concept for Capitol Hill.
And Broodje Co. is why you’re here!
We’ve already worked out an agreement with The Silver Spork, a local cafe, bakery, and neighborhood staple in Capitol Hill. With your support, we’ll be able to buy the ingredients, packaging, and licensing we need to launch Broodje Co.
How? Our sandwiches will be made fresh, on-site, using locally baked breads and fresh produce. Our cheeses will be the finest the Dutch have to offer. We need your support to make this happen. Broodje Co. is the beginning of the Broodjes & Bier dream and we’d love for you to be part of it.
Dutch inspired, Capitol Hill made!
