Blackbird is a “Mom and Pop” restaurant focused on good food and family values. When we say Mom and Pop… that’s literal. Pat and Joe own and run the restaurant with help from their kids and a few extra hands in the community.
But… “how did it begin?” is the question often asked.
The restaurant opened its doors in 2010. But, like any great story, there is more to it. Let’s look through a little of the history.
2000 – 2007
Pat was a cook at the “Sale Barn”. She was quickly earning a name for herself as she could deliver orders for very large groups. Several people could do that you might say. However, she added an element of quality that truly set her apart.
Pat picked up some Catering jobs. Those snowballed and she became a “go to” for good food in large volume.
Pat and Joe were presented with a place they could rent to take their flavor full time.
Blackbird opened it’s door. Starting with only Pat and Madeline (Pat and Joe’s daughter)… and things took off.
*The name Blackbird came from a poem that Adam (Pat and Joe’s son) remembered when he was a kid. The name of the poem is “Sing a Song of Sixpence” but Adam vividly remembered the Blackbirds.
Blackbird moved to a more centralized location and continues to focus on family values and great food.
