TELLER COUNTY — Like all business owners during COVID-19, "It's been scary, it's been risky especially opening a food business," said Liesl Wyka, owner of Wildflower Baking Company.
When Wyka heard about the county moving from Level Yellow to Level Blue, she was ecstatic, because opening up any business is tough, but especially during a pandemic.
The new level will loosen quit a few restrictions, including last call and occupancy.
With that, Wyka says there are some extra precautions that will have to take place.
"We just picked out covers for our chairs today and we were like well we can't sanitize that but we can sanitize that!"
Just down the street from the bakery is The Donut Mill.
Victoria Bealer is an employee at the Mill, and while she says the last couple of months haven't been the easiest, "When everything was shut down and everyone was staying in their homes it was a drowsy, emotional feeling that you would get from people."
Bealer says she is just happy to invite customers in to sit down and stay a while!
"It brightens the mood it kind of makes people happier when we tell people hey you can actually dine in!"
For or those that still might not feel comfortable dining in wherever you go, most places you don't have to.
"It is easy for people to run in and pick up their orders contact free and safely," said Wyka.
Wildflower Baking Company is expected to open on March 6th.
