The 3 years since Next Door opened have been a roller coaster. We often joke that our restaurant “baby” had become a toddler and was just beginning to walk on its own. And then out of the blue, boom – Federal Lawsuit. We definitely never expected to see our names listed on a FEDERAL lawsuit in our lifetime. So instead of focusing on our staff, our food & our growing business we were spending hours with lawyers and researching trademark law. It hasn’t been ideal but the one thing Jim said from the beginning was that our sweet Next Door family would support us no matter what. And we can’t thank you enough for the letters, calls, emails, texts… you name it – you found a way to reach out and let us know you were here for us. Your support of our little Loveland restaurant has been amazing.

We had over 700 entries for our naming contest and one lucky winner won lunch for a year! We have chosen one of the early favorites and our new name is DOOR 222. Keeping with the door theme was important and the “two-twenty-two” is easy to remember as our address on 4th. It will take us a while to make the transition so please be patient but rest assured we will still be focusing on local, scratch cooking and great service.

Again, many thanks for your support of local small business. We are clearly right where we are supposed to be. We love you, Loveland!
