Silly Ax Cafe owner posts GoFundMe to save gluten-free business

Angela Pike said Tuesday’s post was one she never thought she would have to make.

But after after scraping through two years of the pandemic, a series of disasters in January hit her gluten-free cafe hard.

Now she’s asking the Louisville community for help to save her business, Silly Ax Cafe at 2216 Dundee Road. Pike posted a $ 20,000 GoFundMe campaign on Tuesday. As of this writing, the campaign has raised more than $ 8,500.

With COVID-19 numbers on the rise, multiple employees getting sick at once, pipes freezing and causing us to close, ice storms shutting us down, January set us back in a terrible way and we have yet to recover, “Pike wrote in her GoFundMe post. “Food costs have risen dramatically and, while gluten free and allergen friendly food is already expensive, the food costs are astronomical.”
