About

Moontime Crepes - Our Management Team

Mike Kitchen

Michael Kitchen - Founder/Owner

I have been working in kitchens since I was 12: dishwasher, line cook, you name it. With a last name like mine, I learned early on that some things are just meant to be. As you may have guessed by the “everything” about my company, the band Widespread Panic has been the inspiration for both my life and my restaurant.

 

We all have something that means a lot to us, and I’m grateful that I found my calling early on. A lot of people ask me, “why crepes?”. Well….I guess there’s a few reasons there. First of all, I know better than to go toe-to-toe with taco trucks in Denver, I’ve never been much of a burger guy and, like the music I love, I knew I needed to be different. I made my first crepe in 2005 and loved everything about it: the taste, the process, the unique-ness. I was sold. I knew I had an opportunity to provide a superior product using fresh, local and organic ingredients. So, when the time was right, I set set to go and leave my mark and introduced Moontime Crepes to the world.

I bought a tent, a crepe spinner and some Nutella and started off at farmer’s markets across Colorado. I sold my first crepe in 2016 to a couple who had just returned from an extended European vacation (no pressure, right?). When they told me it was better than any crepe they’d had overseas, I knew I was on the right path and never looked back. After all, all the marketing in the world does nothing if the product isn’t great. The compliments kept coming. Customers turned into repeat customers and soon, I had a regular “gig” at Stem Ciders in the afternoons. I would grind my heart out until closing time.

Around this time, a friend of mine helped me find the perfect food truck and worked with me on payments so that I could get Moontime’s name out there more by selling at more places. The love I got from fellow food trucks was absolutely unbelievable. I had something that no one else had, and people loved it. As a result of all of the good feedback, I was invited to my first Taste of Colorado in 2017 and grew steadily from there.

 

My plan has always been to open multiple locations. So, in 2017, when I was approached by the folks opening Edgewater Public Market to open a storefront there, I jumped at the opportunity. It meant a lot to me that they came to me because they’d had my food and wanted it in their venue. Nearly two years later, Moontime opened the doors to its first storefront restaurant in Edgewater Public Market. Since, we’ve expanded to catering and private events. We still keep the food truck running steadily and are considering adding to the fleet.

If there is one thing I want my customers or potential customers to know, its that I’ve poured my heart and soul into this business. We provide a fresh, unique product from the friendliest staff around. They say if you can get a customer, you’re doing well and if you can get a repeat customer, they’ll be a customer for life. We thrive on repeat business. If you come to my truck or to my storefront, I can promise you you’ll return…again and again. For that, I am grateful and look forward to many more years “living the Moontime”!

Alex Crowell - General Manager

I received a B.S. in Sports and Recreation Management from Ohio University in 2010. I’ve spent the last 18 years working in the public sector overseeing athletic operations at places such as Ohio University and University of Denver. Spending the last decade Supervising various multi-Million-dollar sports and recreation facilities around the Denver Metro area.  Worked with NBC Sports overseeing annual advertising budgets of 3 million dollars or more.  I have managed over 1,500 employees in areas of discipline such as leadership, first aid, safety, cash handling, customer service and much more. The focus of these administrative roles I’ve held was an emphasis on customer service.  Being the face of the building for the community has given me a vast amount of customer service experience, problem solving and developing ways to ensure a desirable experience for the guests. 
 
In contrast, I have worked and managed in the bar and restaurant industry for just as long. The experiences opening a full-scale restaurant, a brewery and food truck have allowed me to grow even further in my leadership roles. I have been with Moontime since 2016 at the very beginning in a part time role while continuing to manage a Community Center for South Suburban Parks and Recreation in Centennial.  In 2019 Kitchen and I teamed up bringing my management and operations experience onboard full time.  Since becoming a team full time we have increased sales over each month and continue to grow even through a pandemic.

I have been with Moontime since the beginning in a part time role while I supervised a 110,000 square foot Community Center in Centennial. In 2019 Kitchen and I teamed up bringing my management and operations experience onboard full time. Since becoming a team full time we have increased sales over 800% from the previous calendar year and continue to grow each year even through COVID.
