    We aways celebrate successful businesses who are savvy enough to go the distance. And the Crown Valley Market just turned 20!! Mohammad Ariarad - who lives in Ladera Ranch - opened the market when most of Ladera Ranch wasn't even here!

    What we like about the market: CVM has a cool, international feel that is different from a regular bog-box grocery store. That diversity is welcome! 

    Here's what Matt Surrena from Lola's had to say about it: "Great store! Great prices (tons of fresh herbs), deli it top notch, desserts/bakery is stellar... oh, and fresh baked Sangak (Persian flatbread about 2 ft long... oh so good!)... yup, we're long time fans." Matt would know!

    They also operate Bahar restaurant upstairs that offers Mediterranean food made from scratch that is available for catering or delivery (Grubhub, Doordash, Postmates, Seamless and TryCaviar).

    If you haven't checked them out lately, you have to! Congrats on 20 years Mohammad!

    They are passionate about their clients and will do anything to make them happy. They offer a myriad of beauty treatments but try to focus more on total person wellness. We love that!

    The County of Orange recently awarded $10,000 grants to businesses impacted by the COVID-19 virus. Businesses had to meet at least one of three criteria:

    • The business was forced to close.
    • Sales from the business were down 25% or more than compared to the previous three months. (Prior to March 1, 2020).
    • The business had to lay off at least one of its employees (full or part-time).

    The Chamber is happy to report that almost 50 local businesses received $470,000 of very badly needed money to pay for rent, utilities, insurance, accounts payable, etc.

    It's apparent that COVID-19 is going to be around a lot longer than many predicted (or hoped) early on. That has impacted the way many of us live our lives and the way businesses in Ladera Ranch and Rancho Mission Viejo operate. But it doesn't mean residents have to live in hibernation.

    We have seen a tremendous amount of innovation and adaptation from our business community to continue operating the safest way possible. Carryout food ordering has been the most visible and restaurants have done an amazing job altering their menus, dining and operating procedures.

    What about fitness? Traditionally, fitness involved close proximities and the sharing of weights and machines that could transfer germs. That's no longer the case and F45 in the Sendero Marketplace offers a good study of a business that has drastically changed course.

    Before even entering a class, members are temperature screened to make sure they are not sick.

    The whole method of Functional 45 involved the rotation of members between stations that worked different muscle groups or cardio. Now, members stay in a singular location with all of the workout materials surrounding them. They switch between dumbbells, bars, kettle bells, jump boxes, weight balls within a six-foot radius - complete with disinfectant wipes used to clean everything at the end.

    Class sizes are around a quarter what they used to be but with additional time slots added. Windows and doors are keep open for air circulation.

    Equipment, floors and surfaces are then sanitized again at the end of each class.

    Medical practitioners state the importance of keeping active so that our bodies are better able to fight off any type of infection - not just COVID-19 - and consistent visits to your gym is a great way to do that! 

    We recommend scheduling a non-workout visit to learn about the additional steps your gym is taking to keep all us all safe during this time. They want you to stay safe because that keeps you moving back!
