Community

"It only takes a moment to make a difference"

A philosophy embraced by each member of the Snooze team, we seek to take each moment you spend with us and give a memorable experience, from food to the feel to the faces and through the fun.

It is with these ideals that Snooze welcomes the involvement in our community at large. A portion of each dollar brought into Snooze makes its way back into the community through donation, sponsorship or in-kind. This is now and forever will be our motto. You'll find us passing out pancakes at local races, sponsoring pancake breakfasts for our Good Samaritan neighbors, chairing the boards of our local neighborhoods, picking produce at a CSA.

We truly feel this way, and those working at Snooze feel it as well. If you also feel like you're working with the community and would like to see Snooze involved, please come in and talk to us about it.

Certainly not our outright goal, but we must briefly boast that this aim helped us to achieve an incredible feat in being named one of Denver's Best New Businesses by the Downtown Denver Partnership.

"With its opening, Snooze created 20 new positions ranging from restaurant management training of DU students to service worker development arranged through the Samaritan House. Community involvement, however, did not end with their hiring practices. Schlegel and his brother/partner, Adam, can frequently be found hitting the pavement to promote various community events and fundraisers, including their very own Make a Wish Pancake Day which contributed directly to the Samaritan House, the Larimer Art Walk Festival, RINO Art Festival, First Friday Art in the Ballpark, Colorado Colfax Marathon, and many more. As Vice President of the Ballpark Association, Schlegel is intimately familiar with the need for businesses to support the communities in which they reside.

Ask any urban planner, and they will tell you that the long term goal to developing our city and neighborhoods is through the creation of “unique, vibrant and diverse environments.” As the people gather outside Snooze’s front door on an average Sunday morning, ask any one of them if Denver now has this. You will likely hear yes; along with a description of the world’s best Pineapple Upside Down Pancakes."

If you have an event in which Snooze could assist please send us your do-gooder tale. While not able to help each and every cause, we will aim to do our best in support of our community, culture and environment.
