Meet Michelle Nguyen of CreateFoods

Today we’d like to introduce you to Michelle Nguyen.

Hi Michelle, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
After six years in Austin, I moved to Denver with aspirations to work in events and what better industry than food and beverage?! I came onto the Create Foods team as an Event Coordinator and through my innate love of people, wanting to understand the why and meeting people where they are is how I became the Operations Manager and now Co-Owner of Lucina Eatery & Bar. Building a brand, product, and community from the ground up is no easy feat, but with deep passion and big ambition, I am proud of where we are today.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Absolutely not, but with a supportive and driven team that knows how to laugh along the way have made it worth it. As a start-up for Create Kitchen & Bar (formerly known as Create Cooking School) and Lucina Eatery & Bar, many hats are worn. From marketing, account management, system implementation, to setting standards and expectations, and then to context switch between all of that plus launching a new business venture has been challenging, but knowing what to prioritize has been the most important.

We’ve been impressed with CreateFoods LLC, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Create Kitchen & Bar and Lucina Eatery & Bar has something special, but don’t just believe me because I’m biased. Simply come in for a date night, grab a drink at the bar and let the magic encapsulate you. The energy, warmth, and passion are felt throughout our intentional spaces. We are team players and dedicated craftsmen that believe in cultivating an environment where diversity and holding space for all are upheld and safe.

What do you like best about our city? What do you like least?
I love the genuinely kind souls with golden hearts and active imaginations. We are colorful, loud, and progressive with affinity for mother nature.
