After enduring a year of pandemic-related restaurant challenges with creativity and innovation, Chef Brenner was able to keep his restaurant open and retain his team, while also giving back to the Colorado Springs community through the launch of Meals to Heal, a local GoFundMe initiative aiding two frontline industries: the (overwhelmed) healthcare and (beleaguered) restaurant industries. It was during this time that he also recognized the severe impact the pandemic played on musicians and wanted to provide a solution using extra banquet space in his restaurant to accommodate that need.
“It’s important to me to give back to the community that has supported us for so many years,” said Red Gravy Owner and Executive Chef, Eric Brenner. “As a Chef with a music background, I am passionate about the music industry. Last year shed a light on the fact that musicians have experienced significant pandemic-related hardships and made me realize our community needs more venue space to support these artists,” said Brenner.
Fellow business partners and co-owners of Red Gravy, Bob and Terri Jack, also share a deeply set passion for the music scene in Colorado Springs. “Having a venue in which to perform and entertain is the bread and butter for most musicians and we are excited to reclaim part of our restaurant space to accommodate that need,” said Bob Jack.
