My family started Pearl Cafe in 2004 as a simple coffee shop. Since then, we have added an array of menu items including pearl drinks, sandwiches and salads, as well as our ever popular Hawaiian BBQ cuisine. We have lots of loyal customers who always rave about our delicious food and we have been proud to serve our community all these years. Thank you to all who have supported us!
Though it has always been a struggle to run this small family business, the current COVID-19 pandemic is really our biggest challenge yet. Not only has our business fallen in the past month, we were just recently a victim of a break-in at our restaurant. The criminals stole our cash registers and destroyed our glass door. We were told that crimes like this have gone up significantly because of the crisis and we believe it's unlikely they will get caught.
So, we have started this fundraiser in the hopes that we can raise some funds to help us cover our employee wages, rent and food costs as well as the damages we incurred.
Additionally, we know that many of our friends and family have already donated so generously to our sister restaurant, Sushi 88 & Ramen, so we want to acknowledge them and give a big special thanks. If you have already donated there, please do not feel obligated to give again, though if it is within your means, any amount will be humbly accepted.
This is a tough time for everyone, not just our restaurants. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for reading this, sharing this fundraiser and for any and all donations. We will fight to get through this together!
