Grand Opening Saturday, October 16
HUBBARD, ORE. 7 OCTOBER, 2021— Le Petit Bistro will be celebrating its grand opening in Hubbard on Saturday, October 16. Owned by Ann and David Shultz, Le Petit Bistro serves thoughtfully brewed coffee, handcrafted espresso drinks with house made syrups, fresh baked pastries daily and creatively inspired food including soups, sandwiches and salads. Le Petit is a reimagined version of a family business operated in Woodburn in the 80’s called La Petite Deli which was owned by Ann’s mother Marilyn Paradis.
In addition to partnering with many local businesses for their food supplies, Le Petit proudly serves Caravan Coffee out of Newberg, Oregon. Caravan sources their coffee beans from all over the world making sure they meet strict social, environmental and traceability requirements. These stringent filters help ensure that Le Petit Bistro serves its customers coffee that benefits and uplifts communities and co-ops that depend upon coffee farming for their livelihoods.
“I hope to show our customers how our passionate attention to detail results in a perfectly brewed cup of coffee and skillfully crafted espresso,” said owner Ann Shultz. “Just as in the making of wine or beer, I see the making of espresso as an art and a science all rolled into one to bring out the best tasting notes and create the perfect drink.”
Le Petit Bistro is also implementing a reusable container deposit system for takeout orders. In an attempt to minimize the waste created by the bistro, customers are given the option of taking their food in a reusable container by paying a small deposit. When they bring the container back, their deposit is returned. It is estimated that approximately 55,000 to-go cups and containers can be prevented from ending up in the oceans or landfills every year if the community embraces this program and participates with Le Petit.
As part of the grand opening, Le Petit will be partnering with Jubilee Food Pantry in Hubbard to collect needed food staples for the community. Items in particular need include baking staples like oil, flour and sugar as well as canned vegetables, fruit, boxed cereal, dried chilis, masa, bouillon cubes and pickled jalapenos. Customers visiting Le Petit on their grand opening day on Saturday, October 16 are asked to bring an item to donate to the food pantry. Collection boxes will be located near the doorway.
“The bistro is the culmination of my passion for good coffee, espresso and food along with a desire to rekindle a family business that started over 40 years ago in Woodburn,” said owner Ann Shultz. “I have fond memories of working in my mother’s deli back in the 80’s and I hope I can create those same kinds of memories for my employees and customers, all while focusing on the same high-quality food and drinks.”
