ABOUT US

Chi Chi's is a small, local eatery based in the north London borough of Enfield. Set up and run by a local family who believe strongly in community, we have been hit hard as many small businesses have by the continued restrictions put in place to combat Covid-19.

We have had to close our doors temporarily and are asking for your help to get through this latest closure so that we might open up again in 2021 and continue to serve our local community with great food, coffee, big smiles and fun evenings.

RAISING FUNDS

All funds raised will be in the form of vouchers, that can be used at Chi Chi's once we reopen. It's a simple way to pay-it-forward and help get us through these tricky Winter months before the Spring, which we hope, will bring better times for us all. Whatever voucher you choose will be redeemable against any purchase at Chi Chi's at any time. The added benefit for Chi Chi's is that for the next few weeks the Mayor of London will part match the funds we raise through this campaign, making your support even greater than the value of the voucher you purchase and providing a real life line for our business.

WHY SUPPORT CHI CHI'S

Our ethos at Chi Chi's has always been about supporting local & bringing quality to our customers. 

We employ locally and have continued to support the whole team since March 2019 ensuring everyone on our team will be with us when we reopen. Our amazing team of chefs, waiters and barista's  live so close to Chi Chi's they can walk or cycle to work each day.

We buy locally, procuring our meat, breads, coffee, gelato, herbs and cheeses from local artesian suppliers like Peatchey's butcher and Holtwhites bakery.  This not only helps the local economy to thrive by supporting these independant businesses but at the same time gives our customers the best quality ingredients on their plates and in their cups.

We support our local community. Since we have opened we have donated well over 50 raffle prizes to local schools, charities, sports-clubs and community groups.  We have run a Christmas Day dinner for those elderly and alone in our community.  We have sponsored advertising at all our local schools summer fetes and we have helped promote other local entrepreneurs through selling their products or providing space for them to use when we are not open. We do this because a sense of community is at the heart of what we are, what we believe in and what we want to help improve in our area.

HOW WE WILL USE FUNDS

The funds raised will be used in two ways.  

Firstly, and most importantly your support will help us to meet the ongoing running costs that we still incur whilst closed. This are significant and with the restricted operating last year, there are not the reserves to meet these without help.  

Secondly, your support will be used us to build a new, improved website.  One that can help us better navigate the new norms we are faced with. A website that can more easily offer online bookings, smarter service & takeaway options to our customers.  An improved website that will help us to better communicate with you, our customers. A website that will share new menus & events that are planned for the year ahead, when we can reopen our doors and welcome you back to Chi Chi's once again.
