What a year it has been. It has been a HUGE year for us here at Cafe Rica,(Jackson) quit by job at the end of December and went all in to the shop. This was a huge transition not only because I was leaving a job I had for eight years but I was also getting rid of the safety net that we had as a business. If we needed a cash infusion or we had bills that needed to be paid I was able to handle that with my other income.
We also moved and opened up our new 1900 square foot restaurant on February 29 (three whole weeks before large scale COVID 19 restrictions came into place). We love our new beautiful space and cannot wait until we can have guests in here again. We have big plans for our space in the coming year and we are excited for what 2021 is going to bring to not only our business but our downtown community.
Community has always been one of the most, if not most important pillar of our business. When we decided to open a business we chose Battle Creek, not only is it our hometown but it is full of so much potential. Any of the successes that we enjoy will be in large part because the Battle Creek community has embraced us and supported us beyond measure.
2021 is going to be our biggest year yet, we continue to expand our product line with new cold brews, coffees, services, and foods. We are soon going to be ready to announce our newest exciting expansion and we are more than ready to share it with you all! Stay tuned for details, they will be coming soon and they will be fun and exciting!
Thank you all for joining us on this journey and showing us all of the support that you have during this past year, we wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for you.
Hope you all have a great year and until next time!
