A Heartfelt Thank You From Bobby and Janice
Thank you all for your outpouring of support regarding the loss of Three Brothers Bakery’s Kosher certification after 70 years in Houston. For the first time in almost 200 years of baking, our family’s baked goods are not Kosher, but they are still made with the same love and care.
The decision to remain open to retail business during Passover (the HKA already had let us remain open in the back for commercial business since Hurricane Ike) was not a decision we made lightly.
We are humbled by all the positive, supportive comments. Although being Kosher was a part of our family’s identity and legacy, please know we are still a part of your community and appreciate all those who said they will continue to shop with us.
Small businesses depend on our customers to survive and we are no different. We need your continued business. Your support not only helps us to pay off our disaster loans, but it gives us the opportunity to be here for another 70 years. We have learned through all these posts that we are proudly serving our 5th generation of loyal customers, and with your continued patronage we will be here for your children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren’s birthdays, weddings and other lifecycle events.
Many, outside of our area, think once the cleanup is done from a natural disaster that all is back to normal. We all know that is far from the truth. We hope through our story you may know that for small businesses it is even harder. It will probably take about 5 years to fully recover, and only if we do not have another natural disaster befall our community. We are grateful to still be in business after so many disasters, and it is because of you, our loyal customers and our amazing team that we still are here.
It’s easy to buy everything online these days, and yes, it is harder to get in the car and seek out the small, local business. But taking this extra step could be the difference between a small business going under or it’s continued success within the community. Let’s all be supportive of all local, small businesses and shop with them. We are proof that your support keeps a small business open, so let’s be sure we keep as many open as possible.
