Long Business Description:

THE VISION FOR CLOUDS BREWING BEGAN WITH 2 FRIENDS IN CHICAGO OVER 20 YEARS AGO.
Combining their love of beer and experience in manufacturing, Matt and John set their sights on some day opening a brewery.
Matt started the company in August of 2014 with our downtown Raleigh restaurant, which features a German inspired menu and 40 guest taps, including a 10 tap self-pour beer wall — The first of it’s kind in the triangle.
After decades of home brewing and completion of the Master Brewer Program at the prestigious Siebel Institute, which included a month at Doemens Academy outside of Munich, John was ready to convert from manufacturing nuclear missile guidance electronics to manufacturing a lineup of award-winning lagers and ales. We built our production brewery and taproom in midtown Raleigh and released our first Clouds beers in March of 2016.
A couple months later, in October 2016, we opened our third location (in a city that knows food and drink well) in Durham’s Brightleaf Square. This location features a full restaurant and 50 taps, including another 10 tap self-pour beer wall.

Long Business Description:

this is our passion
creating a juice that satisfies the taste buds is easy. but creating a juice that satisfies the goal of hitting areas of nutrition that most people miss while satisfying the taste buds takes some work. for us, this “work” is also our everyday hobby. we love to test our limits and try new things that can help bring more nutritional benefits to you, the consumer (and selfishly us too). we’ve already gone through over 50 different formulas in less than 3 years. expect more to come!
the gains are real
at cold off the press, we seek to empower you with a product to aid in your quest towards gains. we define gains as being the unofficial unit of measure that symbolizes the progress you make towards becoming a better version of yourself. whether it be to lose weight, gain muscle, or even as far as regulating blood pressure and cholesterol levels, the mission of cold off the press is to be here to help you get those gains.
about our founder
our founder, amir sadeghi, developed an interest in the correlation between dietary intake and exercise performance in college. as an exercise physiology student, he learned of the vast benefits that exercise has on the body in relation to health and vitality. he began to test his theories of how to increase performance naturally based on dietary habits and nutrient timing. after tons of research and using himself as his own test subject, his results were powerful. powerful enough to commit to opening a business focused on nutrition as means to become healthy and aid in a better quality of life.

Curry In a Hurry
Address: 411 W Morgan St,
Raleigh, NC
27603
Business Genre:
Long Business Description:

Curry in a Hurry is a foodies dream, born out of a passion for cooking authentic Indian cuisine by three time award winning chef and owner Alaksha Surti. Alaksha’s roots go back to southern India where she grew up. She was raised in Bangalore, the third most populous city in India. Her mother and grandmothers are a large influence in her life, from whom she learned most of those authentic dishes.

Alaksha is a Personal Chef who graduated from the International College of Hotel Management Adelaide, Australia. She also received her Diplôme Culinaire d’ Hôtelier from the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School of Arts.

She worked at hotels in Australia, London, Sri Lanka and Orlando, Florida before settling down in the Triangle with her husband Nilesh. Her hotel experience continued at the Umstead Hotel and Spa and the Sheraton in downtown Raleigh.

After her first child, she became a stay-at-home mom and now has three children. She loves to cook and enjoys entertaining and feeding her family and friends.

With encouragement from her husband, family and friends, Alaksha took her passion and started her own catering business, Alaksha’s Custom Catering in 2011. With the growing demand for authentic Indian cuisine in Garner and several requests from all who enjoyed her food to open up a restaurant, in May 2017 she was very excited and proud to finally expand her business to a “Restaurant on Wheels” and join the incredible world of Food Trucks.

The Curry in a Hurry food truck will bring authentic Indian curry dishes to Wake County and the Triangle. Her food will entice your taste buds with worldly flavors and is sure to expand your culinary horizons.

Curry in a Hurry has grown with great success from a small Catering company to a Food Truck and now they are ready to open their first brick & mortar location at the Morgan Street Food Hall & Market in downtown Raleigh.

Alaksha believes very strongly in always giving back to the community who has supported her over the years. Alaksha’s Custom Catering is proud to have always been represented in local Charities and Fundraisers to feed and educate children through the Back Pack Buddies Program and the Garner Educational Foundation.

Please come by and have a taste of India at a location near you – and don’t forget, “It’s all about THAT spice”!
