Save Petisco!

Hi friends and family!

We are asking for your help to save Petisco.

We come to you with great reluctance;  as we are well aware of the devastation of small businesses everywhere due the pandemic.

What a crazy time you guys!!!!

Michael Macfarlane started Petisco exactly 12 years ago.  He and his (late) wife Sandra; built it from the ground up.  After Sandra passed from cancer,  Michael continued to operate as sole chef and owner.

Over the years he has cultivated a sweet following of regulars and friends that keep coming back. 

Michaels acumen in creating delicious, consistent and comforting food is unparalleled.  You can always count on boisterous laughter, heart centered service and a genuine desire to do good.

Unfortunately, the owner of the property; has chosen this moment to upend his long term tenants.

As we all know, Covid has proven to be the impetus of doors closing everywhere.  The landlord has said that unless Petisco can get current with rent, he will be putting a "For Lease" sign up this week.  We really, really want to keep our doors open.  We want to improve, to get better, to continue to be a community oriented business, and to nurture your bellies and your spirits.

We really can't do this without our community.  We also understand that this is quite possibly, the worst time in history to ask for financial assistance.

So we say to you, in blessings and awareness....thank you for you.  Whether you can help now,  or can't; we are who are because of you.

We are all together now.
