Last month, Katerina and Vassilis Combaros made the tough decision to close their restaurants’ doors. As you can imagine, I-Drive’s traffic had significantly decreased, making it nearly impossible for them to remain open.
After significant restructuring, Taverna Opa and Tapa Toro are cooking again starting today under one roof!
Katerina Coumbaros, Co-owner of Tapa Toro/ Taverna Opa Orlando tells us, “As small business owners, it’s not just about the success of the restaurants. We consider it our personal responsibility to provide stable income for our 100 team members. Unfortunately, we had to furlough 95% of them and recommended that they go on unemployment. The unsettling fact is none of them have received it, and it has been a month.
Delays with funding make it almost impossible for us to not reopen. So we are reopening with limited hours, a leaner staff, and a new way of serving the community, which includes running both restaurants from one kitchen. We look forward to partnering with other organizations to support our fellow hospitality workers in need.”
