Welcome to the club.

There are many of us in the same business situation, we  are just about breaking even since being closed for 4 months so looks like 2020 will end up as a negative year 

As one poster said, refinance or close. Hang in there

Good story, good idea, unlucky with the timing.

While you're waiting for customers you can try my recipe for Scones, which I make fairly often.

240gm all purpose flour, 1 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp citric acid, 1/2 tsp salt (or 3 tsp baking powder)
50gm SamSon palm oil, 50gm sugar, 100ml milk

Mix together until like crumbs, then stir in the milk until dough.
Fold until fairly smooth (quick, quick when you've added the milk, you're wasting rising time)
Cut the rounds about 1/2-3/4 inch thick.
Rub milk on the top.

Bake at 180-200c for 10 minutes


And to go on top, here's my recipe for microwave raspberry jam.

2 glasses of mostly frozen raspberries and a few blackberries (from Makro) 280gm (200 + 80), 3/4-1/2 cup sugar 140gm

Microwave on 800w for 15 minutes 30 seconds, stirring every few minutes.
Pour into a jam jar, leave to cool, then put in the fridge overnight to set.
