Welp, we’ve had a slow down in availability to sell our cupcakes, coffee, and chocolates and wanted to push an update. When I opened the Precious Panda Cafe, I was still in the Air Force. I wanted a vehicle to create a community with an ability to give back. And for us, the misunderstood pitbull community was one that was very dear to us.
Kilani, or Kiki for short, is the cafe mascot. She is a “pitbull” mix with panda markings. The profits we received from sales were able to give back to the Bad Rap Pitbull Rescue out of Portland, Oregon. We were able to partner with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation as well as one of our community residents to give $2000.
I am currently transitioning out of the military and looking for opportunities to offer a more consistent pop up outside of sponsors at festivals and markets. Until then, I didn’t have a Monday through Friday work week where I could offer pop up locations on the weekends. I’d be gone for a few weeks at a time where I couldn’t be there to share the love. We will be offering a few products online so that you could buy some Seattle love in case you miss us at an event or during our pop up weekend hours. We appreciate all the support and look forward to serving more emotional eaters in the future.
