Temporary surcharge on avocados

Hi – Due to a shortfall in production this season there is a 40% surge in prices for avocado that is expected to last the next 2-3 weeks. This is an extraordinary increase  – even by avocado market standards.

Most times we sit tight and ride out price increases. However, this is unusually high. As a result, we will be applying a modest $0.25 surcharge on all dishes that are made with avocado while this pricing surge is in effect.

When it’s over, the surcharge will no longer be applied to these dishes. We believe this is a better option for our customers than a more permanent price increase.

We respectfully ask for your understanding during this time. This decision was not made lightly. We also ask for your kindness when speaking with cashiers regarding the surcharge. The surcharge is not their decision and they are not granted the authority to waive it. Please direct any questions or concerns to the contact page of our website and Chyna, the owner, will answer questions and address concerns.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. We know our customers love avocados as much as we do and we lament this increase with you.
