BROOKLYN — Entrepreneur Francesca Denis had a hectic year in the middle of the pandemic, being a new mother and opening a business, Cocoa Bean Juice and Salad Bar on Nostrand Ave.
One year later, her store is among the 80% of businesses in New York state that survive their first year. Now, she’s busy navigating the highest inflation in the United States in 40 years.
“The [price] increases on goods to purchase for the store definitely made things more expensive,” said Denis. “We had to cut back on [local transport companies] because it’s getting more pricey for them to be able to get gas.”
