Covid-19 Virus Affect on Our Business


We know it is difficult at the moment, but we are all on the same boat right now.  how you know, all catering events are postponed or cancelled to help minimized and reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus.  All this news, all our plans for future , how to handle everything what is happening or emotionally or financially is indescribable .

We are  all facing devastating damage from the Coronavirus outbreak.

I think we need to be strong, make sure we are healthy and go through these hard times. Love Bean Café is small business and with no help it will not survive, but I myself Ivona Mihalova I went through a hard time when I open shop 7 years ago, first 5 years I had no holidays, worked 90 hours a week, and I managed to put my  business on feet.

Last year when there was a building site around the café, we lost a lot of customers, and for about 8 months we straggled, it was very hard. Luckily I had some savings, only because I made sure I have money for emergency , I do not go on holidays twice a year, I don’t spent on expensive cars, as well because I am a single mum I have to make sure I have money for my child in situations like this.

This time it hit us even harder. But I know I can go through it, I think positively. This time I have no  savings though, because of last year but this time hopefully government will help, and my dad will help. This is why I am soo happy my family is here for me, This is why I had to close the café and not to do deliveries, to protect my family, my parents, my sister and my son. If we are strong together we can do it.

Finally, I want to say thank you for reading this a bit more personal news from Love Bean Café,  just want to say I have an amazing family, amazing customers, who I know, will always support me the best they way they can. I love you all and believe that good things will come back.

    Ivona, I can see how difficult it’s been for you over the last couple of years and particularly right now. Hopefully the government will provide some financial support for small businesses such as yours and you will be able to come out of this in a good state. In the meantime, stay safe with your family. xx

    Always enjoyed our breakfast with you. The family often joined us as did friends. We also made a lot of friends from your “regulars”. We look forward to seeing you all again when this is over. Love to you and your family. Carole and Garry.

    Nicola and I miss you already. Virtual eggs don’t quite have the same effect.

    I’m so sure that all your loyal customers will return when you can reopen.
