Thank you to all of our friends and neighbors who have continued to support us through this terrible pandemic. We built our awesome parklet but now it sits empty. Nine months of very slow business plus this new shutdown have put Atlas Cafe in real danger of closing for good. We've tried to stay open to keep our staff working and serve our community. Unfortunately the amount of business is unsustainable and we have been losing money since March. Recently we have had to cut our hours of operation and our staff's shifts too.
It's uncomfortable to have to ask for help after 24 successful years but we are truly desperate now. We cannot stay open much longer without help. We urgently need cash to keep up with our expenses. We are at a critical point where we may not be able to continue without a lot of help.
We need to raise money now to cover employee costs, also to help pay rent, and utilities. 15% of the donations will also be given directly to our hardworking and loyal employees to help offset their lost wages and tips.
We are so grateful for our amazing and supportive community for helping us through this. It's our honor to serve our neighbors and friends and help everyone through this awful time.
We ask that you please, please donate and please forward our link: gofundme.com/f/SaveAtlasCafe to anyone who may help via email, Instagram or Facebook. #saveatlascafe
We hope to get a 500 match from GoFundMe through #SmallBusinessRelief
