CRAWFORDVILLE, Fla. (WTXL) — With the economic uncertainties from the coronavirus, we here at ABC 27 are shining a light on businesses that are doing their part to help out the community while keeping their business open.
Brenda Hatfield opened Rumors Coffeehouse opened in December, serving organic coffee, crafted sandwiches, and homemade pastries and smoothies.
Not long after, COVID-19 hit, closing the shop for two months.
Hatfield says, ever since re-opening, business has been down so she's hosting "bakery sales" and offering daily specials to draw in business.
"There for the first week, when we opened back up, the community was really helpful," said Hatfield. "But its died back off since the new spike in the virus. The majority of our sales is carry-out, it's not a lot of people that come in and eat at the place."
Hatfield wants people to know they're taking extra safety precautions.
"All the staff is wearing masks, including the kitchen and of course they wear gloves," Hatfield said. "Everything is being sanitized after every customer comes through, including the register and the counter tops and doors and the chairs. We just wipe everything down."
Rumors Coffeehouse is located at 2787 Crawfordville Highway. They're open from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Saturday.
