Katie comments on the refreshing honesty between her and customers that she wants to see continued in the future.
“The one thing that I think will be beneficial is more and more people will want to speak to the people who are handling their product,” – Katie Budd
Budd received high praise and appreciation from her customers. She was one of the first businesses to close once she realized the risk.
“I like to support Katie because she is local. I trust that she’s preparing the fish in a safe way. Also, It’s really isolating right now and it’s nice to connect with her from a distance so I feel like I’m getting good fish, I’m supporting a local business. And it’s good to have that personal connection in these really crazy times. – Michelle Gibson
Budd highlighted the importance of communication when handling meat. Due to the recent events in China exposing the nature of dangerous wet markets, people on the West are warier when it comes to their meat. It’s important to her that customers know exactly what they are purchasing. These relationships are the ones that will allow her business to continue surviving through the pandemic.
