Chris Kyle is an entrepreneur, so he’s always looking for ways to support his fellow small business owners.
Chris says he feels fortunate that his work allows him to spend a lot of time at home so he can be fully present for each stage of his daughter Ava’s life. He was skeptical when his wife purchased Ava a toy kitchen set, but his daughter adores it and has now become a “small business owner” in her very own living room!
“When my wife made the purchase, I was hesitant about spending a few hundred dollars on it,” Chris explained. “It has been worth every penny. Ava is the star of her own little world when she is ready to play.”
Chris recently paid a visit to his daughter’s at-home restaurant and shared his frank yet funny “review” on his Instagram page. “So I tried to support another Black Owned Business for lunch today,” he wrote. “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.”
But Chris didn’t stop there. In addition to the questionable choice of balloons as decor, he said the service at Ava’s Kitchen was not exactly putting the establishment anywhere near the Zagat scale.
“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,” wrote Chris. “Overall the customer service could be better, but the cook is a cutie; so I’ll give her another chance.”
Gotta love a chef who pauses for a TV break! Chris and Ava are thrilled that their post went viral. “During these tough times, I’m glad to see our post shine bright in the lives of people around the world,” said the proud dad.
