The COVID-19 crisis hit many businesses hard due to health protocols and emergencies. Yet amid these trying times, The Modern Rose has risen above the challenge and thrived significantly due to the strength of its community and the support it’s given to the hip and modern cafe in the heart of Deerfield Beach, Florida.
The Modern Rose is a cafe and restaurant that has grown immensely in the last two years. Even amid the coronavirus pandemic, the small and cozy coffee hub has grown by over eleven times its previous performance, showing small businesses that they can thrive through tough times when building communities around their brand. For Modern Rose, much of its success has to do with the fantastic food and coffee that they serve, but it also has to do with its strong brand recognition among its loyal customers.
With over fifty-five different teas from around the world and some of the best locally roasted shade-grown coffee, The Modern Rose is an artisan shop that puts quality on the top of its priority list. The shop also features other products and menu items like boba drinks, an award-winning avocado toast, and various breakfast and brunch options. In the following months, the cafe will be introducing many new additions to its selections, including charcuterie boards, beer, wine, and champagne, and a cocktail menu.
Behind the charming concept of the trendy cafe out of Florida is the power couple Jimena and Emilio Dominguez, who bought the store off the previous owner and upgraded The Modern Rose to the level it is at today. “We are built on a foundation of love, transparency, and hard work,” shares Emilio on the values that breathe life into the shop. “Our team treats all stakeholders like family and puts our guests first and foremost, no matter what. We stand out from our competition by going the extra mile that no one wants to go.”
After the original owner moved to Georgia, Emilio and Jimena took over and added new features and upgrades to The Modern Cafe. She started to introduce more international flavors like dishes inspired by South American and even Nepalese cuisine. The couple behind the store’s success has a straightforward recipe to success: “What it takes is keeping a timeless approach of quality, shopping fresh every day, and treating every guest like family.”
That approach has proven more than adequate as their patrons continued to support the shop through one of the worst economic crashes this world has seen. Emilio Dominguez was consequently named one of US Reporters’ 30 under 30 entrepreneurs for his and Jimena’s outstanding leadership and entrepreneurial spirit. The Modern Rose itself has also won a large collection of awards and accolades, including recognition as the Best Cafe of the City and Best Desserts Place in the City. The shop also boasts five-star ratings across Google, Yelp, Facebook, TripAdvisor, and Uber Eats. Many of the city’s well-known real estate experts, YouTube celebrities, and social media influencers have been spotted on multiple occasions at The Modern Rose. Yet it remains a space for all people to feel welcome.Today, The Modern Rose prepares for more significant expansion as it’s starting to franchise all over Florida. The company also has two out-of-state branches that will be opening very soon. Check out the company’s website and Instagram profile to learn more.
