Patent Pending Employee Relief Fund

On Monday, March 16th, Patent Pending/ Patent Coffee switched to delivery and to go cocktails due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. This is a necessary measure that we as a small business needs to take to survive through these very uncertain times.  With that said,  we had to sacrifice all of our staff in order to cut back on labor cost. This reality is amply weighing on ownership and management. There are 20 employees that we are doing our best to help out during this shut down. 

This is, again, such an uncertain and daunting time for everyone.The economic reality is becoming clearer by the minute. We are asking for any kind of support no matter how large or small for our staff. Every bit helps. 100% of your donations will go straight to staff. 

We at Patent Pending are trying our best to do our part by donating 100% of all tips during delivery and to go to this fund. We appreciate your patronage over the past two years and with your help  we look forward to seeing you behind the coffee shop in the future.....remember #4927 

Thank you!
