Thanks to everyone who contributed to keeping us afloat in the weeks after the Atwood fire. The Go Fund Me campaign is closed as of April 25, 2018 at 5pm. We can’t say it enough – we have the best customers and friends in the world and are eternally grateful for the support.
You may be wondering why our original location, Chocolaterian Cafe Atwood, is closed.
On 2/25/2018, we suffered a significant electrical fire that started in our basement and ravaged a large portion of the cafe. It will likely be months before we’re able to reopen.
We have a staff of approximately 20 people who are suddenly out of work and, to be frank, we’re facing a cash shortage until everything is sorted out. Because of this, a dear friend of the cafe began a GoFundMe campaign on our behalf. You can learn more here.
We’re incredibly grateful for all of our customers’ support through online sales, visits to our other location, and the hundreds of emails of encouragement we’ve received.
Thank you for the love. We’ll keep you posted about our recovery efforts and timing.
Leanne & Alex
