Help Save the ONLY UYGHUR CUISINE in San Diego

Kroran Uyghur Cuisine is the first and only Uyghur Family Owned restaurant located in San Diego, California. Uyghurs are among the oldest Turkic-speaking endangered minority groups in China's northwestern part, known for their unique and historic culture and provenance. Kroran Uyghur Cuisine serves rich and hearty, traditional hand-made Uyghur food; the crown jewel of central Asian cuisine. Kroran Uyghur Cuisine is not only a restaurant. It is our presentation of our culture and existence to the western world.

Our family took over Kroran Uyghur Cuisine in January 2020, right before the global pandemic started. In the past two years, through all the mental and financial difficulties and challenges the pandemic had brought us, our team/family worked extremely hard to introduce our food culture to the San Diego Community while maintaining the quality and originality of our cuisine. We take pride in our genuine Uyghur-style family meals, from only using hand-slaughtered halal meat produce to avoiding any kinds of msg/food additives and unnatural chemical food substances. We only want to serve what we have grown up within our Uyghur family homes. We are incredibly grateful to receive many positive feedbacks, support and acceptance within the community. We wouldn’t have survived the pandemic without you all. We appreciate you from the bottom of our hearts.

Despite our best effort to maintain our business by exhausting our personal savings to pay our employees, rent and utilities on time, Kroran is still behind on rent and utilities. The landlord and Utility company has been accommodating in the past two years by waiving late charges and not raising the rent. Given that, the landlord is giving us one last chance to settle our debt and keep our business open. We must pay the balance of rent plus utilities ( $50,000 ) by January 2023 to renew our lease or face permanent closure. If we make the payment, we will be able to continue with a five-year lease agreement. Any money raised will help us with subsequent rent/utilities to give us time to get on our feet. It would be a heartbreaking and significant loss for the community to lose Kroran- the mark of the existence of Uyghur culture in the San Diego community.

Thank you for your generosity and time.
