Once again we are headed into a short period where we have been challenged to make a decision for our business. It has everything to do with managing the services we provide with the ability to continue taking care of our clients and customers, and most importantly our team to the best of our ability.
This is why we will be closed at our restaurant location the next 9 days until Saturday August 7th and Sunday August 8th when we reopen for our regular weekend hours from 9am-2pm.
S2S started as a “breakfast restaurant and catering kitchen” in 2017 and we will continue to operate with these services. Like many in our industry we are experiencing a shortage of hands to help prepare for both departments to our business. The team we have is a group of rockstars that we know we are fortunate to have, and we want to do all we can to make sure we don’t overwhelm them. They are a committed and caring group and we can not ask for more, because they show up with smiles and ready to serve each and every shift.
Historically, we have learned catering jobs have always been the most concentrated and busiest in the end of July and August. 2021 is no different. With the ability to gather once again after a year of restrictions, we are finding the jobs we committed to requiring even more than usual our full and focused attention. To rise to this requirement we decided to take a short break from the restaurant services like we did last month.
We appreciate in previous times that we have made this choice to close temporarily that you have all been amazingly supportive. Thank you for this encouragement as we navigate the best we can. Thank you for understanding, though it is not ideal to choose one over the other, in doing so we are also maintaining a healthy balance for our team with work and family. Our priority is to complete these upcoming catering jobs and get back to our dining room once again to serve you as soon as we can.
We look forward to seeing you soon as we move forward to handle our commitments and get the jobs done.
Cheers and Love,
Jonathan and Stephanie and the S2S Team
