(TMU) – Supporting the businesses in your community is the right thing to do, which is exactly what dad Chris Kyle recently did. Chris decided to have lunch at a new establishment, very new and very nearby. Right in his own home in fact, at Ava’s Kitchen!
Chris’ daughter Ava, owner and cook, was delighted to welcome a customer and showed him to the best table in the house, decorated with balloons and with a full view of the kitchen, from where he could watch his meal being prepared by Ava.
After finishing his lunch, Chris wrote an honest and objective review for Ava’s Kitchen on his Instagram account. Not only did he thank Ava for the lovely meal, he also mentioned the cleanliness of the establishment but was disappointed that he had to wait much longer than expected for his lunch but, on the positive side, felt sure the service would improve with experience. People loved this dad’s amusing tale recounting lunch at Ava’s and the awesome relationship between the two. Not surprisingly, the post went viral quickly.

So I tried to support another Black Owned Business for lunch today. It’s called Ava’s Kitchen, just opened end of April. It’s a very clean establishment, but whewww let me tell you about this owner. First off, I asked why there are balloons on my chair, and it’s not my birthday? She talm’bout, mind yah business; those are Mommy’s. I been waiting on my order to get done for 45 minutes, and I’m the only customer here. She was making good progress at first, then she stopped for 20 minutes to go watch Paw Patrol. Overall the customer service could be better, but the cook is a cutie; so I’ll give her another chance. Let’s not give up on Black businesses so fast after one mistake. 💕
Chris’s captured his daughter’s personality perfectly. “Ava’s personality is absolutely amazing,” he told social media. “She is such a silly girl. From the moment she wakes up, she’s laughing, smiling, and playing the entire day.”
The duo spend usually spend their days together from sunrise to sunset. Chris explained: “As a full-time entrepreneur, I work from home which allows me to be hands-on with my baby girl daily.”
According to Chris, he was not that keen on getting the play kitchen for Ava at first, admitting that, “When my wife made the purchase, I was hesitant about spending a few hundred dollars on it.” Of course he changed his mind once he saw just how much Ava enjoyed playing with her kitchen. “It has been worth every penny. Ava is the star of her own little world when she is ready to play.”
Chris has been overwhelmed by the loving and encouraging response to their now viral post. “During these tough times, I’m glad to see our post shine bright in the lives of people around the world.”
