Focus on Avenue Businesses
Absolutely Edibles Real Food Fusion Restaurant and Catering Sloppy Hoggs Roed Hus
Brenda and Bjorn, owners of Absolutely Edible restaurants and catering on Alberta Avenue, are passionate about their work, and they know how to recognize an opportunity when it comes their way.
In 1998, after several years working in the restaurant industry, they launched out with their own catering business at 104 street and 118th Avenue. But, before they had even opened, they realized people were interested in a restaurant as well as catering, so they added two tables to their plan and opened Absolutely Edibles, Real Food Fusion Restaurant and Catering.
Over the years, two tables grew to seven and space in the restaurant was at a premium. So, in 2006, they moved their catering business to 9567 118th Ave and dedicated their original location to the restaurant. This worked well for a few years, yet they missed having the restaurant and catering together under one roof, so they made the decision to close the 104 street location and move everything to the larger space at 9567 118th Ave. The restaurant did close in September of 2012, but the transaction on the property didn't go through as planned, so they switched directions and reopened a month later as a smoke house, and Sloppy Hoggs Roed Hus was born. Brenda said they had been developing smokehouse recipes for several years and decided it was time to bring them all together.
