Cof­fee saga busted at Hunger Busters

Isis Town and Country - - News -

HUNGER Busters is cel­e­brat­ing af­ter op­er­at­ing re­stric­tions were lifted last week.

Just one hour af­ter the story went to print in last week’s Isis Town & Coun­try, Hunger Busters own­ers Sharon and John Fisher re­ceived a phone call to say the ban was no longer in ef­fect.

A pe­ti­tion to al­low Hunger Busters to sell “cof­fee, cakes, desserts and con­fec­tionery” gar­nered 240 signatures from lo­cals and vis­i­tors in a month.

The pe­ti­tion was started on Jan­uary 7.

One cus­tomer, who iden­ti­fied her­self only as Maria, said more than 100 peo­ple went into the store to eat but left when told they couldn’t have tea or cof­fee with their meal.

When asked about cus­tomers de­sert­ing them, the Fish­ers con­firmed it hap­pened and cited a group of 12 who went to Hunger Busters for a meal only to leave when they learned they could not be sold cof­fee.
