December 7, 2020 (Loveland, CO)- Five Tables Café, located in the desk chair workspace building, announced that it closed its doors to the public effective Friday, December 4.
Five Tables Café served both the public and members of desk chair workspace, a coworking community. It will continue to serve and support coworking members in the desk chair building with breakfast and lunch options, but has closed its services to the public due to the new Code Red restrictions.
“This is such an unfortunate set of circumstances. Ashley, our head chef, and her team consistently created high quality, creative food options. The Café was just hitting its stride in March when the first Code Red COVID restrictions were imposed on it. The team re-huddled once the café was allowed to open again in May. October found us flirting with pre-Covid numbers. This second Code Red restriction forced our hand. We had to change our business model.” said Jim Doherty, Community Manager of desk chair workspace.
A substantial source of revenue for Five Tables Café were the events held in the desk chair building. All events are prohibited under Code Red, exacerbating the revenue struggles.
Doherty continued, “Once Code Red is lifted, we plan to support our community by partnering with local restaurants and caterers for our private events. We believe this is a great opportunity to collaborate with our local small businesses. But for now, we need to focus on taking care of our members.”
