One of Kalamazoo's soul food restaurants is closing its doors for a short period of time. During the past 2 years, since the start of the Covid-19 Pandemic, we have seen many businesses fall due to the effects of the lockdown, some folded sooner than others, while we are still seeing business struggle to stay afloat due to the impact of being shut down for months. This has happened all over the country, in Michigan, and certainly in Kalamazoo.

This won't be the last time we see a business fall or take a break because they are still recovering from having their business shuddered for more than half a year.

This next business is just the next one to experience these problems, but definitely not the last.
