TULSA, Okla. — As local restaurants and small businesses continue to struggle amid the COVID-19 pandemic by shutting down their dining rooms and only offering carryout or delivery services, we will highlight some of them in our series "We're Open Green Country."
One of the endless breakfast and brunch options available is Antoinette Baking Company in downtown Tulsa. It has been a local favorite since 2012 when owners Andrea Mohn and Molly Martin opened its doors.
They were one of the first local restaurants to close their dining room out of safety before COVID-19 restrictions went into effect in Tulsa.
"Everyone is nervous, and a little uncertain about what's going to happen. The biggest thing for us has been staffing," says Mohn.
She says they've had to temporarily lay off a couple of employees due to less work. The baking company is down to a quarter of sales; however, they are trying to remain optimistic.
"We're taking it day by day. I don't know how we're going to handle it in the coming weeks, but for now, we're able to open it," says Mohn.
Antoinette currently offers curbside delivery, carryout, UberEats and Postmates.
Like other small businesses, they rely on customers to stay afloat. So far, Mohn says they're had an outpouring of support from the community as a whole.
"People calling to check out different employees that they know from the front of house," says Mohn.
They're open from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. seven days a week.
Antoinette Baking Company is located on Main St and Reconciliation Way, Tulsa.
