Owned by Kia and Clarence Lyons, Popbar has handcrafted gelato, sorbetto, and yogurt pops made with natural ingredients and fun toppings.
“Covid has unfortunately hit us very hard,” Kia says. “Last Wednesday we made less than $12. The weekends are better, thank God, but our revenue is still down by 75 percent so you can imagine the bills we are NOT paying.”
How to support: “We also need the community to keep coming out and to keep supporting us,” Kia says. Stop by for a pop as often as you can.
Kia also shared her thoughts and feelings on the death of George Floyd. It’s hitting hard, she says, on top of the chaos caused by coronavirus. Supporting people of color is essential, she says.
“Send us encouraging messages and virtual hugs. We absolutely need those during this time,” Kia says.
