Till we meet again

My dear friends,

It is with heavy heart that I pen this note. It was nearly 10 years ago that Paddy’s opened its doors to the community to come and enjoy themselves while indulging in the finest cup of coffee in Union City. My wife and I were apprehensive when we opened the doors, not knowing how the community would receive us. Our apprehensions have been laid to rest. Never have we seen so many arms circling us.

The past few years have been a challenge to running a small business. We have tried our best to stay abreast of the changing economic climate and also catering to the changing palettes of the customers.

Our lease is over at the end of November. It has been a veritable task running the business at this current location for the past few years so we are opting out. Paddy’s Coffee House as you know it, at the corner of Smith and Watkins will now be a wonderful memory of the past. Our last day of operation will be 14th of December, 2012, and we plan to have a big party on the 15th of December.

What does the future hold for us ? We see the Paddy’s brand continuing with product offerings including a diverse range of ethnic and contemporary baked products. We are partnering with a local baker to give you the best that there will be in terms of coffee, tea, sandwiches and baked pastries while staying true to our philosophy of community service. We are actively scouting out locations and will keep you informed of our new home. Please follow us on facebook (http://www.facebook.com/paddyscoffee) or twitter (http://www.twitter.com/paddyscoffee) to stay abreast of our future.

My wife, my colleagues (past and present) and I wish to thank all of you for your support through the years. Hope to see you at Paddy’s before we shutter the doors for good.

Your humble servant

Paddy Iyer
and all of us at Paddy’s Coffee House
