Today's #SmallBusinessShoutout features Hilltop Coffee + Kitchen! Hilltop has two locations, one in View Park/Windsor Hills and another in Inglewood. Co-founders Ajay Relan and Yonnie Hagos started the restaurant in 2018 with the goal of bringing a quality ingredient menu to South Los Angeles.
In 2019 Issa Rae, star of HBO's Insecure, jumped on board as a partner and even featured Hilltop on the show! Back in March when COVID-19 was beginning to change how we do things, Hilltop quickly switched to a take-out/delivery model. Now as businesses begin to reopen, Ajay and Yonnie are making sure both locations are in full compliance with state and local health and safety guidelines.
Coronavirus hit restaurants both big and small hard, but despite the hard times Hilltop provided more than 70,000 meals to frontline workers, students affected by school closures, and local senior centers through partnerships with companies like Beyond Meat and local non-profits including Replate and #HashtagLunchBag.
Hilltoprides itself on being a community focused business and the neighborhood's support has been tremendous for them, says Ajay Relan.
"We’re always trying to do good in our community and believe that when you put good out in the world, it comes back to you.”
Go show your support for Hilltop Coffee + Kitchen, and please help us continue to support small and local businesses across Southern California!
