Meet Cafe 611

Five Questions with Randy Jones, Owner, Cafe 611

611 N Market St
Frederick, MD 21701

How long have you been in business?
Café 611 was incorporated in September 2006 and opened its doors to serve Frederick County residents in March 2007.

How many employees do you have?
Café 611 is family owned and operated. We are currently operating with five family members and utilizing support from local vendors and contractors to support large functions such as banquets, conferences and weddings.

Why do you believe you will be successful in Frederick County?
The restaurant is located in a HUB location providing opportunity for federal government contracting in addition to multiple family members being veterans. Being located close to Fort Detrick and the Washington metropolitan area has given the restaurant the opportunity to cater on county, state and federal levels. The opportunity to serve customers in a mid-sized restaurant (seating over 250 patrons) has proven to be a benefit to Frederick county business, political, social and entertainment organizations.

If your company is involved in community outreach, please share with us your involvement.
Café 611 has been instrumental and is proud to be the recipient of multiple awards and recognition for community support. At the state level, the Maryland Restaurant Association awarded us the State of Maryland Good Neighbor of the year and the McCormick Corner Stone Small Restaurant of the year award, Small Business of the Year MD State Chamber of Commerce, Governor’s Volunteer Service Award, Maryland State Governor, and at the county level, Human Relations Business of the Year Frederick County Human Resources Commission, Summit Award Frederick County Chamber of Commerce and Heart healthy restaurant of the year Frederick County Health Department.

What are you most proud of?
The company is most proud to serve the residents of Frederick County and their tourist with an establishment where they can dine, socialize and entertain for an affordable price.
