  • We will do everything in our power to hold our commitments as long as gatherings are allowed to happen by our governing bodies.

2.) What are we doing now?

  • March 16 we stopped our immediate operations to ensure we were not spreading the virus and re-evaluate the current state of affairs.
  • This allowed us the opportunity to sanitize our operations so we could be confident we were making the right choice for everyone when we opened back up.
  • March 27 we launched our online ordering for family meal packages.
  • March 30, 2020 our first orders for pickup or delivery will be available.
  • June 6th, 2020 we opened up for catering and in addition to our regular catering, we now provide a limited single entree Covid Friendly single service catered meal.

6.) What steps are you taking for sanitation?

  • We have taken the time to sanitize the entire work environment from our sales office, delivery vehicles, kitchen and warehouse.
  • Any employees showing signs of illness will be required to leave immediately and will have to have a MD approval before returning to work.
  • Regular sanitizing of all surfaces will happen throughout the work day as we are operating.
  • All employees in the kitchen are required to wear full kitchen attire with hair pulled back.
  • Plastic gloves are to be discarded and replaced regularly after touching any unsanitary surface.
  • We are setting signs up in the kitchen as a reminder for regular intervals of hand washing and no face touching.
  • Delivery drivers and pick up orders will be provided by employees wearing disposable plastic gloves.
  • We are seeing if we can get a supply of face masks to be worn any time your food is open to the kitchen staff. Protective face masks are in high demand in the hospitals and we want to make sure the first responders have the necessary masks first.
  • We have been intensely studying reports of how the virus is transmitted.
  • We do not claim to know anything more than what the CDC has produced.
  • We are trying to eliminate as many touch points as possible.
  • We are taking cues from the medical field on how we can best provide sanitation standards beyond what is required by our governing bodies.
  • We will be constantly looking at ways to improve this process so we can confidently continue to service food.

7.) Help support us and a friend or family member!

  • Gift cards are now available and a great gift. Every card purchased helps us keep our business running and we need your support. Click here https://squareup.com/gift/JZBBQ8XYEK614/order
