It has been 18 EVENTFUL months since we have opened our doors here in Rogers Park! There are so many things that we could say to express how grateful we are to have met some incredible neighbors; but what we can say is, We hope you are ready for more of us!
There has been a great many challenges with running and sustaining this tiny but mighty business. Through each hurdle, the residents of Rogers Park, along with family and Friends, have kept us going strong. In the time that we have opened, we have met so many wonderful people. We have watched your littles one grow, and if you have been visiting us since day one- you have seen us grow too. It is with great honor and integrity that we serve each of you daily. Making these moments count with you all have been the plight of my career. Many of us have seen some of our cherished businesses serve their last meals recently. With the wave of Closures, I'm sure it brings many questions. What better platform than our blog to let you all know about the exciting ways we have grown and continue to do so.
Did COVID-19 impact your Business?
Yes absolutely! We would be lying if we said it didn't! But what it didn't do, was stunt our growth! we are proud to know that we are doing better than ever thanks to you,
What is your Stance on BLM?
We have and always will believe that BLACK LIVES MATTER! You will never find hate here. It is with the help of the community that we were able to donate over $400 to the #BLM movement. We hope to continue efforts this Fall
What are your plans for the near Future?
