blog slacker

So I guess I've been quite the blog slacker lately. There has been a lot going on good & bad. After all the research I have done for the past month to get the business license...literally about 30 phone calls & lots of online checking...I thought everything was set. Well, the Mecklenburg county zoning department had a different idea. Apparently, you are not allowed to run a business out of someone else's residence. So basically there are much different rules between the state and the county. The state is the one who came to inspect the kitchen and it is completely fine with running your business from someone else's home but the county says NO. I won't go into the details on why the county says no..but it doesn't make much sense for the small business person. LAME!!!

We have a plan in the stay tuned! My hope is that I'll be at the Tailgate farmers market the last weekend in May. Fingers crossed please.

[New for ota]
peanut butter/banana - [This bar is special because I've actually named it - it's called the "pnat banana bar") after my bro-in-law & sis-in-law in Colorado. This is Natalie's favorite bar and I thought it worked to merge their names (pat & natalie --> pnat). This may be the only named bar...we'll see if I can come up with any others!]
kitchen sink granola - loose granola (not the bars) that seriously has everything but the kitchen sink...packed with nuts & fruit..mmmm
chef's choice - If you are not picky with the ota.ingredients I use this bar is for you! You will be surprised every time with anything off the menu or maybe even something new.
custom bar - for a little extra $ you will be able to specify the nuts/fruit you want in the bar...don't see something on the menu you like? do you just want nuts? just fruit? This option is for you!

Other than these few updates, Chris is starting a real website. We have secured a domain name and are getting it all figured out. When we actually have something on it, I'll post the link.

All for now. Stay tuned for some (hopefully) good news!!
