the big O doughnuts
By: Jessica Curzon // July 28, 2016
"I have been working as a nurse for 15 years and I have two daughters, 18 & 16 years old. My oldest daughter is very strictly vegan, whereas my younger daughter and I border on vegetarian. We were driving downtown about a year and a half ago when she was craving a doughnut, but there were no vegan options in Salt Lake. At that moment we just looked at each other and said, “That should be a thing and we should do it!”

BROADWAY BUZZ GIVEAWAY: 20% OFF PURCHASES
(Valid Friday 7/8 - Thursday 7/14)
"I grew up in Salt Lake City, and though I’ve left a couple of times, I always end up back here. Opening a shop has been a dream of mine since I was kid. As a teen I’d shop on Broadway—there was a shop that sold comics and magazines and the girl who owned it would sit out front in the sun. I thought “That is the dream—I’m going to own a shop on this street and sit out front whenever I want!” A decade later and it’s real for me!

BROADWAY BUZZ GIVEAWAY: 20% Off Regular Purchase PLUS - 3 Juice Flight w/ Purchase
(Valid Friday – Saturday DOWNTOWN LOCATION ONLY)
"I was born and raised right here in Salt Lake City Utah. I grew in the Midvale area and moved to SLC three weeks after graduating high school. I’ve always really loved that we have this hustle and bustle of a city but it still feels like a small town. Everyone knows everyone and it anchors this idea of I’d rather be a big fish in a small pond than a tiny guppy in an ocean. I felt like Salt Lake was the perfect place to make an impact on the community and then with the farmer’s market, I really fell in love with local food. I wanted to find a way that I could support the local food movement in a way that was creative and diverse so juice came to be.

BROADWAY BUZZ GIVEAWAY: 15% Off Retail Purchase
(Valid Friday – Saturday)
"I was raised in Salt Lake City, and as much as I have loved living out of state, I always return home. I think it’s because I see something blossoming here that’s been building for some time: a cultural resurgence. Heightened diversity. Growth. Some people may think of log cabins and mountain décor and kitsch when they think of Utah, but that’s just not the case anymore.

"I lived in NYC for 10 years and there wasn’t a day that went by that I didn’t crave the diversity that Utah’s backyard offers. I knew that I would end up here again one day. I’ve been in business with my brand for almost 3 years now. I co-op my part of Broadway with Fellow Shop owner, Hannah Montgomery; this allows us to offer a range of products to our customers and keep our overhead manageable.
I often find myself paralyzed or hurled in the fast lane in our society of scarcity, instant gratification and quick fixes. In times like this I know I am not integrated, connected or serving my greater goals, dreams or aspirations. For me I find the most happiness and abundance when I cultivate equanimity and stay anchored in the present moment.

In Chapter 9, Composting Failure, Brené talks about regret in the context of failures of courage, “whether it is the courage to be kinder, to show up, to say how we feel, to set boundaries, to be good to ourselves.” I have experienced failures in these areas, and while I have evidence for how I am improving, when I do fail, it’s always to allow perfectionism to take hold and drive my actions. Brené’s work on perfectionism was written for me, and I am sure many others are drawn to her work for that reason.
