For months, Robert is Here had been operating as a drive-through service. Though that option will no longer be available, they are planning to offer a curbside service soon. If you have any questions, call 305-246-1592 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now that it is fully back, Robert is Here has instituted some guidelines, or “housekeeping rules,” as it calls them in a Facebook post. Customers must:
- Wear a mask while inside the fruit stand building.
- Sanitize their hands.
- Shop another day if they are not feeling well.
The store, at 19200 SW 344th St., is equipped with hand-sanitizer stations, as well as floor decals to show shoppers where to walk or stand, and plexiglass barriers for checkout.
“Don’t worry, when you head out back we have plenty of picnic tables spread far enough apart to enjoy your family or friends and social distance from others!” according to a Facebook post. “And finally, we want to THANK each and every one of you who have supported us as we ran our drive thru. Together we can make it through the rest of this pandemic! Stay safe and happy shopping!”
Here's Robert himself, taking the necessary precautions with his mask and gloves:
Robert is Here is a South Florida tradition, with its rare and exotic fruits and vegetables. Owner Robert Moehling started the business as a fruit stand on the side of the road and has seen it grow through the years into a tourist destination.
Fans come from far and wide to savor one of its milkshake creations.
