Good Morning!! I honestly can not believe the CIG is celebrating 6 yrs. This date is actually not the grand opening date, it is the date that the CIG was purchased & named. The first time of what would be many of stepping out on absolute blind FAITH.... 4 weeks later the doors would open and my life would be changed by 100s of amazing people journeys. This is what this place is all about... Journeys. One of my precious regulars said a few minutes ago...Happy Birthday to the CIG Teresa , I can not believe it has been 6 years, "" I can't either but I have realized , the first 5 years were truly spent in an easy bake oven & the last 9 months, the hardest I have ever endured. " as I recall my words now I realize yes hard & full of problems and change but actually the 3 most important things have not changed..... Our heavenly fathers amazing blessings, the amazing hope that is here everyday & the stories that people share that I then have the great opportunity to share. You see it is not me making a difference in so many people's life ... It is y'all sharing your stories with me that is making a difference. Happy beautiful Wednesday & Happy 6th Birthday to the Cast Iron Grill. I feel like a mom that is in the battle grounds of raising a child that I do not realize what it has become and what it will be. Thank y'all for being on this amazing journey..... A journey that is so full I am blessed beyond what words can express & a beautiful promise of Hope from my Heavenly Father.
I opened the Cast Iron Grill in October 2007. Lots of changes have happened in the last 5 1/2 years. The CIG started with 55 seats in an office building located at 18th and K. After five years, we were bursting at the seams with now 167 seats, and 24 wonderful co-workers working on top of eachother to make it happen. 2012 the Lord chose a different journey for the CIG. We relocated the CIG and opened our doors on January 2nd, 2013, just four blocks away from the old location! It has changed my world completely! All of these stories are the happenings of the people and the joy and celebration that make the CIG what it is.
