Together with state unemployment tax systems, the FUTA tax provides funds for paying unemployment compensation to workers who have lost their jobs. Most employers pay both a federal and a state unemployment tax. Only employers pay FUTA tax. The FUTA tax is not deducted from employees' wages.
941- Employers who withhold income taxes, social security tax, or Medicare tax from employee's paychecks or who must pay the employer's portion of social security or Medicare tax, use Form 941 to report those taxes.

After a long search for an expanded home in downtown CS, Coquette’s Bistro & Bakery owners, Michelle Marx and Turu Marx Eurich (mother/daughter), are thrilled to have finally found ‘the one’ and have signed a lease for 321 N. Tejon.
Michelle states, “We couldn’t be happier with the space and with what we'll bring to it, but we’re equally as happy with the relationship we’ve developed with the many people we respect towards revitalizing downtown. We expect to have a lot of fun merging our energy with the action and creating co-ventures and promotional opportunities."
Turu adds, “The experience of being downtown with the pop-up retail space has just shown us how much our products are wanted with an easier access and how, not only are our loyal customers excited for us, but that whole new groups of people are finding us. It’s been incredible. We can’t wait to now have the space for a proper patio, receptions and bar."
"We’re thrilled that Coquette's has chosen to stake its future on downtown Colorado Springs," said Susan Edmondson, President & CEO of Downtown Partnership. "Coquette's is a beloved regional brand that draws customers from throughout the Front Range. Their award-winning gluten-free offerings add to downtown's growing mix of eclectic, locally sourced, healthful dining options."
Dave White, president of the COS Regional Business Alliance adds, Getting such a high quality restaurant like Coquette's on North Tejon is an excellent step forward for the development of our downtown. We wish and Turu well as they enjoy their new home."
Coquette’s remains dedicated to being allergen conscious, 100% Gluten Free and Boldly Luscious™, breaking the mold of what’s expected. Danny Eurich, head chef, and team just take it farther away from ordinary GF all the time. They'll create more vegetarian/vegan offerings as they've found downtown is more engaged with it. Their unique GF comfort foods have built a strong following.
Michelle adds, “Manitou has been an amazing experience. We adore the locals and the tourist experience has carried what we do farther out into the country. We just kept outgrowing the location and we need to fully focus on this new adventure. It will take a lot of dedication and we don’t want to spread ourselves too thin. Coquette’s will still keep a smaller presence in Manitou, to be further announced and it will remain as it is through the move.”
In the past The Colorado Music Building and Lofts has housed Flavors, the Curry Leaf and a wine & grocery store. The almost 4,000 sq. ft space has never been utilized in the way Coquette’s will make use of it. They’ll create more “areas” and build a bar with full liquor license, featuring innovative cocktails. It will house a retail shop that will carry not only a larger variety of baked goods and pastries but also “take home” items like their exceptional potpies, lasagna and more. There will be a semi private party/ conference room as well to fill a need they see and left even more vacant by the Olive Branch closing.

Holiday deadlines are approaching to order boxes, and info is at the above website. I emailed founder Wayne Pendleton to inquire more about the organization and food, and he first noted that Food For All Nations is not directly tied to a religious organization, though "It is based upon Christian values and principles, open to anyone who wants to buy a box of food."
He has partnered with various vendors, and some of the vegetables are locally grown, he says. Major brands are used as well, such as Farmland Hams. Here's more info:

This will soon include a new logo and some redecorating inside to reflect this evolution.
