Amidst social distancing, shelter in place rules, working from home and school closures, our days are different and our challenges, unique. Parents are trying to figure out how they can work and educate their children at the same time. The elderly and home-bound are more isolated than ever before. Grocery stores and retailers are facing extraordinary demands on supply chains and millions of people are finding themselves with dramatically reduced work or no job at all.
As a result, collectively our lives have drastically changed and our concern – for ourselves, for our communities and for one another – is heightened.
We want you to know we are in this with you and committed to serving our community with the upmost attention to safety – both for our operators, team members, staff, and their families. As we navigate this ever evolving and challenging situation, we want to share with you some of the principles we are using to inform our decisions specifically during these difficult times.
In the coming weeks, you may see some restaurants open their doors for dine-in patrons once again. Although we are not opening dining room seating just yet, guests may notice changes inside our restaurants, including plexiglass partitions and hand sanitizer stations available for use. We will provide contactless ordering and ask guests to practice social distancing as they wait in line. Look for signage to help you navigate any operational changes within our restaurant.
We put the health of guests and team members first and continue to follow relevant state and local health guidelines. In all of these changes, practicing safe-service is our first priority.
As some states begin to ease restrictions on the closure of local businesses, we are going to take additional time to review our operations and ensure we have necessary precautions in place to protect our guests and team members before we reopen our dining rooms. In the meantime, you can still enjoy our food through curbside pick-up, 3rd party delivery (GrubHub, DoorDash, etc.), and you can take advantage of contactless ordering and payment by giving us a call or ordering online.
In accordance with CDC recommendations, our restaurant began supplying staff with face masks or other face coverings. In addition, we have set up multiple hand sanitizing stations for our staff to frequently sanitize their hands.
We look forward to continuing to serve you and our local community even with the changes that have taken place.
