Overcoming COVID-19 & the Slowing of the Economy
As many of you know, we have been impacted very hard by the spread of COVID-19, most of our clientele about 90% of them, are some of the most vulnerable members of our community; as they are seniors. We hope that everyone is safe and that everyone is following the right guidelines to flatten the curve and stop the mass spread of the corona-virus. Having said this, we wanted to let you know that we are committed on staying here for you as long as we can financially afford it. We are engaged and committed in serving the community and those who love good food here in Fair Oaks.
Our time here as new owners had a few bumps along the road, We purchased the restaurant on April 1st and we undertook a challenge, by not just keeping the old staff, but trying to do things the same way. That didn’t work for us, financially this was not sustainable so we had to make some fundamental changes: from changing the front of the house staff, and changing from full service restaurant to counter ordering, and also taking on some challenges here at the property where we operate the business. All of that was finally steady, and then the pandemic came upon us and now here we are, uncertain, yet resolve in staying here as long as we can. We do not want to stop being the spot everyone loves to come to and enjoy.
Currently we are taking all take out orders and we do offer those delivery services thru DoorDash, GrubHub, Postmates and UberEATS. They do charge a bit more for the food, however they include the delivery which is a great convenience. We do take over the phone orders as well and our phone still the same ‘ol number (916) 844-7472.
We hope and keep our hearts open for this to come to an end or if the new normal is something else, we are committed to adapt and overcome.
Our passion is cooking, and serving great food -Thank you for helping us live our passion.
Sincerely the staff,
Isaac, Vicente, Gabriela & Pablo.
