Dear Valued Customers and neighbors.
In light of the recent incident in strand caffe, once again I would like to take a moment and give my sincere apologies to every single one of you who was hurt by this unfortunate situation.
Just wanted to clarify that the incident happened in my absence. A manager was also on sick leave. The person responsible was a part time employee in status of a trainee. He was a very new guy who is 18 years old and who recently came to this country and was working at my cafe for only 10 days. All these is absolutely not an excuse for his behavior and is not what myself or other employees of cafe stand for. I would also like to clarify that myself- I’m an Asian & Brown who was raised in this country with multi-culture, and I believe in equivalent freedom of rights for every single human being.
I have zero tolerance towards any discrimination and have already took appropriate measures and have fired the person responsible immediately upon hearing of the incident.
Further, earlier today I have met with the community members to personally apologies and explain the entire situation.
Once again on behalf of my caffe and other employees l deeply regret and apologize to everyone who was hurt and would like to assure you that this will never ever happen again. Everyone is welcome to my strand cafe with equal respect. I wish you all the best.
