CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The owners of the Atomic Omelette and Grill moved to their brand new location on Staples a week ago hoping to have a big grand opening.
Unfortunately, that’s when the COVID-19 outbreak began so they are not allowing customers inside so they have come up with a pretty good idea.
It's very difficult to find milk and eggs at stores, so they are selling them here to the community for those who can’t find them anywhere else.
The owners are buying extra high in demand products from their suppliers and selling them to the public at their curbside drive through here at their new location on South Staples.
“With what has been going o the supply and demand has not been met so they have cut back our delivery days from six to four," owner Michael Van Syckle said. "But I am at least able to get milk and egs and sell to the public."
Dana Bazinet, general manager of the Atomic Omelette, said special suppliers have helped them keep their deliveries coming.
"In the restaurant industry, we have so many companies we can purchase from Sisco being number one but our dairy and produce people have been able to help us," she said. "And we have been very lucky that we can continue to help the community.”
So until they can officially celebrate their grand opening, The Atomic Omlette will continue to offer curbside and pickup delivery.
“People can come up here and call by phone," Van Syckle said. "They can use our URL off of our Facebook site to order. They can call Door Dash, Favor, Grub Hub, and other delivery companies and we are handling it that way."
