Let's Dive into 2021!
What a year! 2020 kept the curveballs coming, didn't it?
Like many businesses, the pandemic hit us hard and our revenue loss was dramatic. We aren't complaining, as our amazing small restaurant partners and many small, family businesses went through a much more difficult period - some not surviving at all.
If you haven't owned a business, take it from us, small businesses are rarely built by one person. It takes families, communities and the support of many amazing businesses as well as employees to successfully lift a company off the ground.
It's an endurance marathon, more difficult than we could have ever imagined. But with this said, 2020 has taught us a lesson on the true value of supporting local small business, and like you, we were saddened to see so many great companies go.
For Crazy D's, one of the toughest things was not being able to see and chat with our customers at events, markets, and in-store demos. Our foundation was built outdoors at farmers' markets with support and encouragement from many of you.
We have many happy memories of how we started, and can't wait until this pandemic is over so that we can reconnect in person. Until then, we're working hard on finding new ways to connect with you all, and offer our support during this unprecedented time.
Please don't hesitate to reach out with any suggestions or feedback, good or bad, as we are always looking to improve your experience with us.
You're all a special part of Crazy D's! We work for you.
