8/28/17 – The ribbon will be cut Tuesday on the newest Blue Zones Project-approved restaurant in Dodge County. Blue Zones officials say the Open Door Coffeehouse in Mayville was selected because of its commitment to creating a healthier environment. The Blue Zones Project is a community-led, well-being improvement initiative designed to make healthier choices easier by encouraging simple changes to environment, policy, and social networks. The coffee house has a menu that includes a grilled vegetable panini option served on sourdough bread with zucchini, carrots, goat cheese, red onion, sun dried tomatoes, and red pepper. Additionally, all paninis are served with a side of seasonal fruit. The Open Door also encourages patrons to bike or walk to their downtown location and has provided a bike rack for customers to use. Owner Amber Schraufnagel says she never had a doubt that Blue Zones Project was something she wanted to be a part of and says the opportunity has only enhanced her mission to make positive changes in Mayville and the surrounding areas. The ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held at 5:30pm Tuesday the Open Door Coffeehouse at 119 South Main Street, Mayville.
