The COVID-19 Pandemic was tough for local businesses and not everyone weathered
the storm in Paso Robles, “We are most proud of surviving COVID-19 shutdowns while minimizing the impact on em- ployees,” says Aud, “We had to furlough for a few weeks in 2020, but quickly received PPP funds and brought everyone back. Brett and I didn't pay ourselves for over a year to use all PPP funds for the employees.”
Aud says that the post-pan- demic era challenges continue, such as the newly installed
and hotly debated paid park- ing program in downtown Paso Robles, coupled with high gas prices. But, despite the chal-
Paso Robles
lenges, the team at Vic’s presses on optimistically, “We are hoping for a renewed economy that will allow us to pay current competi- tive wages, purchase high-quality ingredients and remain in busi- ness.”
On the horizon for Vic’s will be online ordering for pick-up, and Aud says they are looking into free delivery within walking distance as well as loyalty pro- grams and discounts to encour- age more traffic. “It may be ‘grow or die,’” says Aud. Well, we hope it’s growing, and that this Paso Robles haunt will press through as they have for nearly a century, and with a little luck, and a lot of dedication, we believe it will.
Vic’s Cafe is located at 841 13th Street in Paso Robles. They are open daily for breakfast and lunch from 6:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information or to place an order, call (805) 238-3988 or visit them online at
