Scratch & Co.
Scratch Food & Beverage is now Scratch & Co. The rebrand is due to changes owner Don Mahaney has made to the popular Troy Hill eatery, including an option for staff to become part-owners of the restaurant. The use of “co” — which Mahaney, in a press release, says stands for “collective, collaboration, and community” — rather than “food and beverage,” gives Mahaney and his team more room to be creative, with the promise that Scratch’s familiar traditional service will always be there.
In conjunction with these changes, Mahaney is launching a retail line, MADE by Scratch & Co. This branch will feature deli items, ice cream sandwiches, self-stable items, and more. MADE items will be sold to local coffee shops and other third-party retailers. 1720 Lowrie St., North Side. scratchfoodbev.com
