I am so, so happy to be writing this post……
ROBICELLI’S IS BACK IN BUSINESS!!!!
We’re still hurting pretty bad- we’ve lost a week of receipts, and many of our stores remain shuttered (Red Hook Lobster Pound, Battery Market). But the most important thing for us was to take the first step, get back in the kitchen and start baking again- now that it’s happened we’ll figure out how to bounce back. We can start accommodating orders for our online store again! And Wednesday we’ll start taking orders for Thanksgiving and Christmas! And later this week we can finally start distributing our packaged hot cocoa mix to stores! Keep moving forward!
Tomorrow I’ll be posting more info about our relief efforts regarding Superstorm Sandy- how we’re trying to get help to neighborhoods that really need it while the Red Cross etc sets up. We’ll get you all information on where to volunteer, where to send money, what supplies we need, where they need to go. There’s a lot to be done, and we’ll need help from people all over the world to do it.
On behalf of all New Yorkers, I cannot accurately express what your support has meant to us over this past week. We know we have a long road ahead, but knowing the world is behind us gives us faith that we’re going to come through.
Next post we get back to laughing, inappropriate tangents, and pictures of Richard Nixon-eggplants and baby otters. It’s been really hard to find things to smile about this week, but we’re going to do it.
Keep moving forward.
