Business Briefcase April 25, 2019

Hello, readers! This one’s sure to get off to a strong start. In fact, I have an update on something I may have left you hanging on a few weeks back.

You may recall my mention of Artisan Olive, which leased a 660-square-foot retail store in Greenway Promenade. Well, I can now confirm the store is open at its new location. More specifically, it’s at 5930 W. Greenway Road, Suite 25B, on the northwest corner of 59th Avenue and Greenway Road. It used to be at the Citadelle at Arrowhead.

If you’re looking for fresh, ultra-premium extra virgin olive oils from around the world and balsamic vinegar from Modena, Italy, Artisan Olive is probably your kind of thing. And it’s open 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. It also operates out of the Pinnacle Peak Farmer’s Market from 8 a.m. to noon Saturdays and the Anthem Farmer’s Mark from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sundays.

For more information, visit or find it on Facebook @Artisan-Olive-116715905670176.

For a different kind of business, El Bashra Aesthetics relocated earlier this year. It is now at 17570 N. 75th Avenue, Suite 32. If you’re not familiar, the Sara Mohamed-led skin care practice offers treatments such as injectables (botox, vitamins, voluma, etc.) and peels. For more information such as prices, treatments or current promotions, go to or find it on Facebook @elbashraaesthetics.

Now that we’ve got some new openings out of the way, what about upcoming ones?

Well, Jersey Mike’s is set to open a new location at 9455 W. Glendale Avenue, Suite 130, near Westgate, on Wednesday, May 1. At this point I’m sure the popular sub sandwich franchise needs no introduction, but alas – here we are. Guests can be sure to get hot subs, cold subs, subs galore! Signature wraps, kids’ items, sides, drinks, desserts, breakfast and yes, even catering. For more information, visit

That very same day is another event. And that brings us to the networking side of things.

The Women’s Networking Alliance’s Glendale chapter will meet at 8 a.m. Wednesday, May 1, at The Blow Dry Co., 6780 W. Deer Valley Road, Suite 101. Though free to attend, reservations are required for those looking to attend this meeting, which is aimed at women business owners. All business owners are welcome but only one member per industry is allowed per chapter, and multi-level marketers are not allowed. Chapter 201 currently represents a gift basket company, Realtor, life coach, wellness coach, life insurance and insurance agent. It is recommended that guests bring business cards. For more information, contact Debbie Quintana at

And finally, Lunch N Learn at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, May 14, will focus on “The Evolution of Business Websites.” Thryv, the event sponsor, will discuss trends, best practices, and innovation of websites. Thryv and the Glendale Chamber of Commerce frequently partner for Lunch N Learn courses, which are an hour long and occur the first Tuesday every month. The program itself begins at noon. Attendance is free, but advance registration is required. It will take place in the Glendale Chamber of Commerce’s BNC National Bank Conference Room, 5800 W. Glenn Drive, Suite 275.

That’s all the briefs for this week. Thanks for reading!
