Friends of Firefly:
It is with a very heavy heart that I make this announcement to friends and family…
As some of you may know, Firefly has been for sale since late July. I had come to the conclusion that while I’ve built a great foundation, experience and expertise beyond me is needed to keep my sweet little shop going and taken to the next level. I know my limits.
Having said that, we’ve had several potential sales fall through. I had to make a heart wrenching decision last Tuesday night (after hearing the most recent potential sale is not happening) to close my shop. Sadly, our last day will be Sunday, January 11th.
I have given my heart and soul to this precious babe of mine, but it takes more than that to keep a restaurant business going (any restaurant owner will get this!). Like I said, I know my limits.
Firefly remains “for sale”. I pray that someone will come along quickly and scoop her up, as I know we are beloved in our community. I will continue to pay on the lease until that happens, or as long as I can. If you or someone you know has an interest in “keeping Firefly alive!” – please contact my broker Kelsey Diller at firstname.lastname@example.org, 206-915-6028 and check out the business sale site at www.WestSeattleCafe.com
I cannot end this note without singing the praises of my employees. From the top of my lungs: The best crew I’ve been blessed with in the entire 2+ years. Rockstars: Hannah Acker, Rebecca Croft, Rachel Pisachuk, Sharyl Brown, Helen Johnson and Katie Allen. I heart you gals!!!
Last, but certainly not least, I want to thank the entire West Seattle Community for your support. I just love you so much!
It has been an honor to serve you.
