As 2018 approaches we have taken a radical decision to stop operating our Valletta outlet. It has been a great and at times challenging two years of bringing our food to Malta's capital. One of the most beautiful things was seeing the diversity of people that we attracted. From judges and lawyers to bohemian artists and parched tourists. We especially enjoyed seeing the relieved faces of vegan and vegetarian tourists who felt like they had found water in the desert.
We are particularly grateful to our regular customers who were the foundation of our operation. Many of them have seen all the phases that we went through. Catering is a difficult business and since we founded two other sister companies Theobroma and Sanya, running two Grassy Hopper outlets has stretched us too thin. So for this reason we have decided to focus all our energy on our Gzira outlet, extending our opening hours to also offer dinner from Wednesday to Saturday.
Our mission remains the same. To disrupt the catering industry. To bring in new ideas and knowledge into our relationship with food. To help make it easier for people to access healthy food. To be a refuge for those who cannot find clean vegan food anywhere else.
We will remain committed to serving our Valletta customers through our delivery service and we are also working on plans to offer pick up of special lunch boxes within Valletta.
We know many of our customers will be disappointed to hear this news, but we count on your support to keep the spirit of Grassy Hopper alive and we look forward to updating you on some of the new ideas up our sleeve.
Our Valletta outlet will be open for one last day on Friday 29th December, ending with our Ramen Night. Future editions of this popular event will be held out our Gzira outlet.
Thanks again to all our customers and see you soon!
