Of everything that has gone on for the last few months, between government shutdowns and riots, one thing is quite clear: small businesses, as well as particularly black-owned businesses, need a lot of love.
In an effort to support a black-owned business very, very close to home, dad Christophe Kyle is doing his part to support “Ava’s Kitchen,” a local establishment (in his living room) that is owned and operated by his adorable toddler daughter.
His hilarious and sweet “review” of this darling business is going viral, and for good reason!
“So I tried to support another Black Owned Business for lunch today,” Kyle wrote in a now-viral Facebook post on May 21. “It’s called Ava’s Kitchen, just opened end of April. It’s a very clean establishment, but whewww let me tell you about this owner.
“First off, I asked why there are balloons on my chair, and it’s not my birthday? She talm’bout, mind yah business; those are Mommy’s.
“I been waiting on my order to get done for 45 minutes, and I’m the only customer here. She was making good progress at first, then she stopped for 20 minutes to go watch Paw Patrol,” he continues
“Overall the customer service could be better, but the cook is a cutie; so I’ll give her another chance. Let’s not give up on Black businesses so fast after one mistake.”
As often happens when small businesses turn into social media sensations, business was soon booming at Ava’s Kitchen.
They were soon contacted by multiple news outlets for interviews and even the maker of Ava’s kitchen set, KidKraft, who offered to send her some loot, Western Journal reports.
“Can we send Chef Ava some food and kitchen supplies for her growing customer base?” they wrote on Kyle’s Instagram post.
Unfortunately, when Kyle tried to visit Ava’s again, he found it had been shut down by Governor Gretchen Whitmer!
“The Ava’s Kitchen chronicles continues,” he shared on Sunday. “So I gave the restaurant another visit today. To my surprise, she was closed for business.
“I asked her what happened, and she said our governor ‘Big Gretch’ made her close because she wasn’t practicing social distancing.
“Since I’m a loyal customer, and I just happen to own a production company, I’m installing these sneeze guards to help stop the spread of germs. The owner promised me a big hug and dramatic kisses once I finish. I told her issa’ DEAL!”
This is the sweet and funny story we all need right now.
