The Downtown Castle Rock Alliance had the opportunity to sit down with Robert Schoene, the owner of the B&B Cafe. Below are a few of our favorite questions we got to discuss with Robert.
Why did you choose Downtown/what attracted you to owning a business in Castle Rock?
My wife and I moved to Castle Rock on July 3rd of 1993. When an opportunity arose to be a part of the downtown area in Castle Rock, we could not pass it up.
Tell us the story/background of your business. How did you end up running a business in your industry?
I started out in high school washing dishes and never left the industry, eventually getting a degree in Hospitality Management at the University of Denver.
Favorite thing about owning a small business?
Owning a small business allows me to be personally involved with the day to day business as well as shaping the future of the business. Owning a small business allows me to be involved on the micro level as well as the macro level. The two are not exclusive of each other.
Favorite day of the year to own a small business?
The best day of the year to own the B&B Café is the anniversary of the first day as an owner. I will never forget the first day owning the restaurant.
What’s the easiest way customers can support your small business right now?
