It’s been an interesting few weeks with Hanukah, Christmas, & New Years. Since this is our first year, I have no history to base sales on during the holidays. We closed for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, even though I would’ve been open if I thought people would come.
I had decided to close on New Years Eve and Day as well, but changed my mind a few days before once I saw that the weather was going to be nice. One of my lovely team members offered to work, so we opened for shortened hours, and it was the right choice! We did pretty well those days! Now I know for next year.
Although the light is slowly coming back, El Niño is here as well. I know that we need the rain, but I’m a little nervous about how it might affect people coming to Yoga-urt. The bottom line is that it’s out of my control, so I will just try to do the best I can to keep people coming through these cold/rainy months as the light continues to come back.
One way of doing this is Hot Chocolate. We just announced today that we are now offering Vegan Hot Chocolate and it’s really good!!!! We are also working on something else that I can’t announce yet, but hopefully soon. It will be great for winter months.
The best part of this whole thing continues to be seeing the reaction from our customers and sharing Yoga-urt with them. Also, reading the kind words on Instagram, Yelp, Facebook, and various emails that I receive. It means so much that you like us.
Here’s to a good January and a great year ahead!
