Mike Marquard, formerly of Kaldi's, goes to Half & Half to head up "progressive' coffee program

Mike Randolph, chef-owner of midtown’s The Good Pie, is finalizing the line-up for his soon-to-open Clayton breakfast and lunch spot, Half & Half. The latest addition is Mike Marquard, former Kaldi’s education and customer service leader, who will serve as general manager.

Marquard, who finished 6th in the 2009-2010 U.S. Barista championship, will be in charge of front of house services and will head up the restaurant’s "progressive" coffee program that’s set to feature a unique coffee bar and a rotating list of single origin coffees. Half & Half is scheduled to open at 8135 Maryland Ave., in April.
