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 Wednesday, KVUE stopped by RESTART CBD, a business owned by Austinite sisters Shayda and Sydney Torabi.
RESTART CBD has been in business officially for three years but has been using and making CBD from home since 2015. They started their business after Shayda was hit by a car, breaking her pelvis and nose. CBD was what helped her recovery and started them on their journey to owning RESTART CBD.
The COVID-19 pandemic caused them to close down their retail business for a little while. They began offering curbside options, which they will continue.
Sydney said they are known for their education, professionalism and high-quality products. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and ready to answer any questions you may have.
