The Downtown Castle Rock Alliance had the opportunity to sit down with Matt Frary, the owner of the Backyard. Here are some of our favorite questions that we got to discuss with Matt.
Why did you choose Downtown/what attracted you to owning a business in Castle Rock?
The Castle Rock Downtown is the perfect Downtown in all of America! We wanted to open The Backyard in a place that caters to families, that encourages growth Downtown, and that would embrace our balanced concept of indoor/outdoor spaces, entertainment and live music venue, as well as great food and drink. The founders have run other successful businesses in Castle Rock and have experience with the way the whole town supports each other. It is a very vibrant downtown to live, work, and play.
Favorite thing about owning a small business?
The best part about running and owning a small business in downtown Castle Rock, is the sense of community and the ability to hire people during this crisis we are all facing. We believe that being a part of the local fabric is key whether it is providing entertainment and a relief from the stress around us, or it's meaningful and gainful employment and growth. Our ownership believes that with success, comes great responsibility to the community that helped us get there.
Favorite place to visit in Downtown Castle Rock?
Our favorite places to visit in Downtown Castle Rock include Sugar Spoon Candies, Scillepis, Union, Siena, The Barn and The Emporium. The most out of this world food though, may just come from our British neighbors over at The Brit Stop Cafe. You cannot beat their curry, pasties, their cakes, and their charm.
What is something unique that people may not know about you or your business?
One thing that you may not know about us, is that the logo of The Backyard was designed by Matt Frary's 9 and 12-year-old, and polished up by SmarterChaos, the Digital Marketing Company.
What are the easiest way customers can support your small business right now?
Customers can come join us any day of the week for lunch or dinner from 11am to 10pm, and help us find the right live music, the best mix on the menu, and to keep coming back time and time again. Come hangout by our firepits, take in a great band, try the flight of corn or some ribs, and kick your feet up and relax with the Backyard family.
