Breakfast delivery service now open in Denton

A delivery-only breakfast service opened in Denton in early August, and serves similar breakfast and lunch items as its neighboring restaurant, Seven Mile Café.

Kevin Klingele, who co-owns Seven Mile Café along with his wife Josie, said the free delivery service has a more limited but innovative menu.

“There will be a more creative twist to the food items,” Klingele said. “We wanted to deliver something new and convenient to Denton. The whole push is to give breakfast in a new and fast way, and to make a big convenience factor to that.”

Fletcher Franklin, kitchen manager for Breckie’s, and Andrew Bowman, who is the assistant kitchen manager, both collaborated and came up with the items for the menu.

Franklin said Klingele brainstormed a handful of ideas, and when the thought of a breakfast delivery service came up, he was all for it. 

“We were like, ‘Hell yeah, that sounds awesome’ and threw ideas at him,” Franklin said. “We already owned the coffee shop building and it really isn’t being used for anything else but coffee. We wanted to develop a cool, different menu a lot of people haven’t seen.”

The food can be considered either or breakfast or lunch, but with a twist. Bowman said they wanted to introduce a different type of food to Denton.

“We’re going to be competing with other breakfast restaurants, but obviously this is a new age trend,” Franklin said.

An example is the chicken biscuit sandwich, which consists of an oversized biscuit that is made in house. The chicken is cooked in in-house batter and fried, bringing out the sweet and savory, and the bacon is candied with a sauce that has pineapples and chipotle peppers in it.

“It is a fine line between breakfast and lunch,” Bowman said. “Everything could be lunch but also has aspects of breakfast. With the creativity, we are still strict because we want to make sure everything is good and remains hot while travelling. If it doesn’t stay hot or keep the same texture, we will try to fix it.”

Breckie’s can be ordered via their website or on their mobile app, and currently has two delivery drivers on staff. Klingele said he will be just as committed and will run things the same way Seven Mile is.

“The food is healthier and more innovative with more innovative options,” Klingele said. “Fletcher and Andrew are the heartbeat behind this. They have a lot of freedom with this. We are all cheering for them, and Seven Mile is supporting as well.”

Breckie’s will be functioning out of the Seven Mile coffee shop, which made it easier to open, only needing three months to prepare.

“There will be some error and we will try to do what we can and hopefully the community will communicate that with us,” Franklin said. “We have the food, the equipment, staff, but we know we will get to the point where we get very busy.”

Although Franklin and Bowman came up with the menu, they both expect to go through trial and error as the business grows and gets running.

“We can only do so much to prepare, but you don’t know until you start hit and running. It’s definitely one of those ‘Let’s wait and see’ moments,” Bowman said. “If this works out, it will grow with Seven Mile. This is kind of testing the waters to see if it will work. Both of us definitely think it will work. We want to open a bigger kitchen and deliver to a further radius.”

Breckie’s has only just opened, but Fletcher is already coming up with the restaurant’s next steps.

“I have no idea how the outcome will be, but I am excited,” Fletcher said. “Doors are open to endless possibilities. Exam week would be crazy, I’m sure we will do things to adapt after we figure out how successful we will be.”

One idea Bowman mentioned was possibly adding a food truck and try even crazier things with their menu that catch people’s attention.

But even in the early phases of his new endeavor, Franklin said he thinks the food will get a positive response from the get-go.

“Every item on our menu is the right mix of sweet and salty,” he said. “This could be breakfast but then it could be lunch too. The twist we play on it, there is nothing like that around here.”
