They said – your food is good, you are very welcoming. That’s when we decided to build a family business. There was a time when we had to add several rooms, we had two and we needed two more, but we didn’t have the funds. We received support from Acba Federation, added a bakery filled with the culture of Tavush, where we now hold master classes, and furnished everything. Thanks to the investments we were able to double our finances”, noted Davit Avetisyan.
Berkri also organizes flatbread baking, tapestry and carpet weaving master classes, excursions and walks to local historical and cultural places for guests. «
