TALLAHASSEE, 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.

When life gave local businesses lemons during the coronavirus pandemic, Oh Lemonade says they squeezed to please!

Since 2012, Dwyane Ash and Abigail Jackson have provided the Big Bend area with their specialty lemonades infused with fresh fruits.

Located in the art district of Railroad Square, Oh Lemonade stays afloat through the pandemic with its crafty lemonades and adaptive customer service.

"We've just steadily worked at it," said Ash. "Improved on our menu, and our customer base has grown. We have been blessed enough to be able to weather the storm."

Ash never thought he'd be expanding his business because of a pandemic. In an effort to create more safety measures without compromising customer service, Oh Lemonade installed sneeze guards, QR reader menus, and ways to order and receive food without contact.

"We went to online orders through Bite Squad, Uber Eats, and Door Dash." Ash said. "We do call in orders and curbside pickup."

Oh Lemonade is located at 618 McDonnell Drive and open Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
