Decorah’s Landing Market Expands Partnership with Spectrum Network

The Landing, a modern-day food hall, announced today that it is expanding its restaurant opportunities for the Spectrum Network, a licensed program for adults with disabilities.

The Spectrum Network will operate a pop-up restaurant each Wednesday, using the space at Justin’s, a local food vendor at The Landing. Spectrum will initially make, sell and serve Landing customers a variety of soups from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Wednesday. This will resume December 2nd. Eventually, Spectrum will expand their service and begin offering breakfast and lunch to patrons. Spectrum’s: The Kitchen, currently sells to-go and takeaway food at The Landing’s marketplace.

These hours are subject to change in case of COVID closures. The Spectrum Network as well as The Landing Market are working hard to provide spaces as safe as possible in these times and prioritizing the health and safety of their staffs, always.

“It’s a win-win for both organizations,” said Peter Espinosa, owner of The Landing. “We are proud to provide Landing customers this excellent food option, while also supporting the mission of the Spectrum Network by providing meaningful work opportunities for disabled adults in a safe and community focused environment.”

“We’ve already seen success at The Landing with the to-go meal packages that our employees prepare,” said Mike Meirick, of the Spectrum Network. “By giving us access to Justin’s we have the opportunity to showcase the skills and capabilities of our team, and provide meaningful compensation for them.”

The Landing is a food hall and marketplace owned by Pete & Kari Espinosa, offering space for unique local food and product vendors including: The Buzz Coffee & Wine Bar, Justin’s, Deli Arts & Letters, Sugar Bowl, and coming soon Root 43 Juicery a new endeavor started by Josey and Micole Jewell.
