Thank you very much for all your support given to VegiLicious.
We have been here in Huntington Beach, California for 4 years, and Akira & Ana
have been very happy to serve you and all the lovely customers.
Our dream & mission
However, VegiLicious might not be able to continue next year. The owner/chef Akira myself & my wife Ana are here in the United States for a business visa and the visa needs to be renewed every 2 years. The US visa authorities require us to improve the sales by 50% in order to revew our visa in December this year. Now we have come close to 35% and we need 15% more. Unless we hit the 50% improvement, they should deny our visa renewal, and if that is the case, we will have to close VegiLicious and leave America.
My wife and I come from Japan and established an organic vegan restaurant VegiLicious because we would really like to make people and the planet healthy & happy. Because America consumes the biggest amount of meats, produce the biggest amount of greenhouse effect gas from livestock and feed the biggest amount of grains to livestock, which are all bad for human health and the environment, we would really like to help better the situations here in the United States by providing healthy & delicious organic vegan food and contribute to the health and happiness of people and the planet.
Why did Akira open up VegiLicious?
Please help us renew our visa. You can help us not only by coming more often but giving our gift cards to your family/friends, spreading the words, sharing our restaurant's information and your experience on SNS such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Yelp. Those will greatly help us get more customers, raise the sales and have the US visa authorities renew our visa. Your kind compassion and cooperation would be highly appreciated. We hope we can serve you next year, the year after and more.
Love & Peace,
Akira & Ana
