Everyone has a story and here is ours ...
It all began with family, passions of all kind and one book in particular 'To Kill A Mockingbird'.
Randy & Ericah Winzeler's passion for coffee & tea, healthy food, an outdoor lifestyle and family have all been infused into the business.
In 2010 they opened up Atticus and began the journey. They wanted a place that would serve locals and tourists alike, that would be welcoming to stop in, sit down and enjoy a cup of coffee or swing by mid bike ride for a quick, healthy snack. Randy & Ericah work hard to provide quality, consistent drinks and food while still maintaining a fun & active lifestyle & work environment. When they aren't slingin' coffee & tea ... they you'll find them up in the mountains on bikes or skiing in the backcountry.
Summer Sarinova, (Ericah's sister), is the artist behind all the amazing mosaic murals, and glass art seen throughout the store. sarinovaglass.com
Jhett Schiavone (Ericah's brother) and his wife Callie Sioux are the talented musicians behind the 'Fresh Brew Music Series' which took place during the 2014-2015 Sundance Film Festival at Atticus. If your lucky, you can catch their band, Gleewood playing a surprise set at Atticus from time to time as they pass through on tour. Gleewoodmusic.com
Cassandra & pete Schiavone (Ericah's mom & dad) are the inspiration behind the whole business! mom would read 'to kill a mockingbird' to us as we grew up and taught us the values & lessons from the characters - which had a profound effect on our lives as children. Dad taught the business skills, work ethic and family values needed to achieve and live out this dream. They now travel the world, tasting teas, smokin' bbq, writing books, and giving daily inspiration to each and everyone of their children and business'. Without them Atticus wouldn't be the cultured, literary & family environment that is today - We love you mom & dad!
The winzeler clan (Randy's entire side of the fam) all live locally and give daily support, inspiration and love to keep us inspired and they pull us out on the mtb singletrack when we need to re-focus. you'll see randy's mom often in the shop chatting to customers, tidying up & giggling! as well as randy's brother's photography on the walls and on greeting cards for sale in the shop Kevin Winzeler pHotography - We love you winzeler fam!!
Family is everything. our goal is to treat each and every customer & employee like part of our family - we hope you enjoy your visit and thank you for your support!
