Our Team

Janet Poth

Co-owner

Hi, my name is Janet. I am the co-owner of Saved By The Max and a chef by trade. I studied food, art, and music in college and enjoy cooking French food as well as making craft drinks like cocktails and kombucha on tap! I also love to paint, which has led me to open an art bar with Joseph Monley in 2014.

I grew up in Denver and have lived here my whole life, with the exception of a few years that I spent at university away from home. My parents are restaurateurs, so I grew up watching them work hard to make their businesses successful.

When I was younger, they would take me out to restaurants all over the city and show me what it meant to be part of this industry. As soon as I had enough money saved up for school, my dad suggested culinary school because he wanted me to learn about food on a different level than just eating it every day!
