AUSTIN, Texas — Central Texans have seen many businesses shutting down because of the COVID-19 pandemic. KVUE wants to help "Keep Austin Local" by highlighting small businesses that might need a little help.
On Friday, KVUE stopped by Kinda Tropical located on East Seventh Street.
Kinda Tropical has been around since 2016 but it did some revamping in 2019. Currently, the inside is closed but they still have a large patio outside. Like many other businesses, the COVID-19 pandemic was scary for their business, but they are excited to seemingly be on the other side.
