- What’s New?
You can count on Marco’s Pizza.
As a people-first, service-oriented business, we remain open for delivery and carryout to serve our mission of making a positive difference in the community. There are individuals from the communities we serve who are homebound or may be quarantined and unable to visit the grocery store or make their own meals, and we are here to help.
Marco’s Pizza owners and their teams are stepping up across the country, helping those in need. We promise to remain open as long as we are deemed to be an essential business by the CDC during this pandemic, especially for states in “Shelter at Home” situations.
Notably, Nick Morgan, a multi-unit Marco’s franchisee operating in Northwest Arkansas, helped spark a movement via a Facebook post that has now been shared more than 12,000 times, helping spread the word about where families can find free lunches while schools in Arkansas are closed due to COVID-19. Many Marco’s locations are following suit providing community giveback programs and other essential services.
With more than 950 locations, Marco’s Pizza hopes to provide a much-needed service as the nation continues to navigate this dynamic situation. We are committed to providing a high-quality service no matter the scenario and are exploring new ways in which we can continue to support our employees and the communities they serve, as our national, state and local governments look to put broader provisions in place.
The health and well-being of Marco’s employees, guests and community remains our No. 1 priority as the company adapts and innovates to continue to service the nation in a time of need. Consumers can now seamlessly order Contact-Free delivery by phone, or through the Marco’s Pizza app or online at Marcos.com, where you can indicate this in the delivery instructions box as you place your orders. We’ve brought back our Unlimited Medium 1-Topping pizza for $6.99/each for either carryout or delivery to feed families in these uncertain economic times.
The cleanliness of our stores is always a top priority for us, now more than ever. Our procedures are designed to protect the health and well-being of our employees and guests. We have increased the frequency of our cleaning and sanitizing procedures, and we have intensified sanitization measures for high-touch areas. We have also prepared our stores to respond quickly to any emerging situation, working closely in collaboration with our local health departments and the CDC.
As I always say to our employees and franchisees, we are in the “people” business. The people and our communities need us now more than ever before.
You can count on Marco’s Pizza.
To Our Valued Guests,
As our communities continue to feel the increased impact of coronavirus, we feel it is important to share with you what we are doing to help keep people safe and healthy. Please be assured we have protocols in place and are working with the CDC and local public health officials.
At Chick-fil-A, we strive to take great care of the people in communities in which we serve, from local Operators and their restaurant Team Members to Guests dining in our restaurants across the country.
As part of our protocols, our restaurants have heightened their cleaning and disinfecting procedures to maintain a healthy environment for our Guests and Team Members. We’ve instructed anyone who is not feeling well to stay home out of an abundance of caution and self-monitor their symptoms. In addition to following CDC guidance and partnering with local health departments, all franchise restaurants have been equipped with recommended procedures to follow if their community, or someone from their restaurant, becomes impacted by the virus.
As the situation evolves, restaurants may implement additional preventative measures to ensure Guest and Team Member wellbeing, including staffing or service modifications. Each local restaurant Operator will communicate necessary changes within their restaurant.
In addition, actions we have taken over the past several years have helped us prepare for scenarios like this and throughout this process, we have been continuously refining and implementing new procedures. From food safety to health and hygiene to cleaning and sanitation, we have allocated an abundance of resources into building chainwide guidelines that go above and beyond FDA requirements.
Thank you in advance for your patience as we navigate this challenging situation one day at a time and determine how best to continue serving our communities, while maintaining our focus where it belongs: on our Valued Guests and Team Members.
Tim Tassopoulos, President and COO Chick-fil-A
Dear Valued Guests:
We are monitoring the evolving COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation closely and coordinating with public health officials to make decisions on what is best for our guests and employees. Please call ahead or check our website often for announcements on store closures, changes in operating hours and procedures. We have made operating adjustments in all locations.
At this time, we have strict limits on seating capacity in all locations; we have halted reservations for groups and fundraisers through the end of the month and have asked Chuck E. Cheese to take a rest from his normal activity in the restaurants and we hope to have him back very soon. Our kitchens will be open for To-Go and Delivery orders, so you can have family fun at home too!
Please be aware of the additional steps we have taken to ensure we are meeting or exceeding any Health Department guidance; these include:
Without a doubt, the COVID-19 outbreak has now touched every aspect of our daily lives. We’re a brand built to celebrate the fun times with family and friends and our focus remains on safety. We’ll continue sharing updates and thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we work through this together.
Notice regarding Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) around the world. As the impact of this situation grows in the communities where we do business, we would like to share the steps that we’re taking to keep our Associates and Customers safe.
At In-N-Out Burger, nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of our Customers and our family of Associates. In our restaurants, we are putting a great deal of emphasis on the procedures that support our high standards in the areas of cleanliness and health. Some of the most important areas of focus are:
Additionally, we have asked each of our Associates to inform us of exposure to anyone diagnosed with coronavirus, or of any international travel. When appropriate, we will exclude Associates from work to confirm that they are not infected with the virus.
We’ve taken steps to minimize large gatherings of Associates, including the postponement of meetings, workshops, and inter-department sports tournaments. Non-essential business travel has been cancelled. In order to accommodate working parents in the case of school closures, we are prepared to be even more flexible with scheduling in our restaurants and we are preparing work-from-home options for our corporate Associates, when possible.
We’ve taken the step to replenish Associate paid sick-time banks to ensure that every single In-N-Out Burger Associate will have at least two weeks of paid sick time available to them should they not feel well and need to stay home from work.
Every day, we hold ourselves to very high cleanliness and health standards that are designed to maintain a safe and healthy environment in our restaurants. In addition, we remain vigilant in learning more about this disease by monitoring developments closely and keeping informed of additional recommendations from public health agencies. Our own internal health experts are in constant communication with our teams of leaders and with other experts outside of our company. We are ready to initiate further measures that will make a positive difference, as they become known.
At In-N-Out, we are committed to doing what’s right to protect our Customers and Associates, and to do our part in preventing transmission of Coronavirus.
Thank you to our loyal Customers for your continued confidence and trust in our people and our company.
Vice President of Operations
Dear Valued Customer,
On behalf of McDonald’s USA, I want to assure you that in times of uncertainty, the safety of our customers and people remains our highest priority.
Please know that we are keeping those affected by coronavirus (COVID-19) in our thoughts while we closely watch the evolving situation.
In the meantime, I want to inform you of the proactive steps McDonald’s and our franchisees are taking to ensure the safety in our restaurants across all our communities – in proactive partnership with local and national health authorities.
For more than 65 years, McDonald’s values of quality, service, and cleanliness have endured. Today, that same commitment guides all our actions. Specifically, we are:
More than ever, we are proud to honor our commitment to cleanliness so you feel confident dining with us. We sincerely thank you for your continued business, and above all, for your trust in the Golden Arches.
President, McDonald’s USA
To our Shack Community,
Hospitality is about being on your side. Shake Shack’s role in the world has always been to enrich the lives of others. It’s about putting our people first and ensuring the wellbeing of our team members, guests, and communities. With that as our guide, and in response to the current COVID-19, or coronavirus, we wanted to give you an update on how we’re staying on top of it in all our restaurants.
Throughout our 16 years of serving you, you’ve trusted us to keep the highest levels of cleanliness, sanitation, and food safety. Over the last few weeks, we’ve built on the many procedures we’ve long had in place to further strengthen our approach in this current moment.
Things may look and feel a bit different in your local Shack right now and we appreciate you understanding how we’re operating to keep you safe. In addition to our usual routines, here are some of the extra measures we’ve introduced that you’ll see the next time you visit a Shack:
During this time, we also want to remind you that you can always pre-order through our app or web channels and we’ll have your order waiting on our pick-up shelves when you walk in.
And if you want to hang at home, we’ll bring your order straight to your doorstep with delivery from Grubhub or Seamless.
As always, we’re thankful for the privilege to serve you.
CEO, Shake Shack
The world is grappling with an issue of enormous scale and human impact, and our hearts go out to all who have been affected by the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19).
At Starbucks, we believe it is our role and responsibility during this time to prioritize two things: the health and well-being of our customers and partners while also playing a constructive role in supporting local health officials and government leaders as they work to contain the virus. Through that lens, we will continue to make decisions with vigilance and courage informed by the latest science-based information and guided by Our Mission and Values.
I wanted to personally reach out to you and provide an update on the actions that Starbucks is taking to help prevent the spread of the virus and support the health and well-being of our customers, our partners (employees) and our communities.
You may be aware that over the last few weeks we have taken a series of precautionary steps in response to this developing public health impact, including increased cleaning and sanitizing procedures for our stores. We have also prepared our stores to respond quickly to any emerging situation, leveraging the considerable insights we’ve gained from our experience in China, where we continue to see encouraging signs of recovery with over 90% of stores reopened.
We appreciate your understanding that, as a customer, your Starbucks Experience may look different as we navigate through this time together. While we are currently maintaining regular operations across the U.S. and Canada, our stores are prepared to modify operations with options that still allow us to serve you your favorite beverage and food. This means that as we navigate this dynamic situation community-by-community and store-by-store, we may adapt the store experience by limiting seating to improve social distancing, enable mobile order-only scenarios for pickup via the Starbucks App or delivery via Uber Eats, or in some cases only the Drive Thru will be open. As a last resort, we will close a store if we feel it is in the best interest of our customers and partners, or if we are directed to do so by government authorities. In any such situation, we expect store disruption to be temporary.
I want to also thank you for supporting our Starbucks partners who proudly wear the green apron. We have a long-standing history of caring for our partners, recognizing they are the heartbeat of Starbucks. That is why, as we navigate this dynamic situation, in addition to our sick leave benefit and mental health offerings, we are also expanding catastrophe pay so that partners do not need to feel like they need to choose between their health and their work.
Thank you for being a loyal customer. It is our intent to remain transparent, providing the latest information from Starbucks here.
Starbucks resilience is owed to our unwavering Mission to inspire and nurture the human spirit – one person, one cup and one neighborhood at a time.
We are privileged to serve you and your community and look forward to seeing you soon.
Your Texas Roadhouse family has always taken pride in delivering Legendary Food and Legendary Service in a safe and clean environment. During this unprecedented time, we want to assure you we have taken proactive measures to address the issue of Coronavirus in our communities.

With the guidance of the CDC and other public health officials, we have enhanced the frequency and scope of our sanitizing procedures to maintain our already high standards. We continue to add resources and focus on handwashing, hygiene, and sanitation in our restaurants.
On behalf of all of our Managing Partners across the country, thank you for your loyalty and trust.

To Our Guests,
At Cicis we take a lot of pride in making your dining experience memorable, and there is nothing more important to us
than the safety and well-being of our Guests, employees and the communities we serve. With Coronavirus (COVID-19)
on the minds of many, I want to take a moment to personally update you on the steps we are taking at Cicis to ensure
your health and safety during this challenging time.
To help protect our restaurants against COVID-19, we are in constant communication with local health officials, the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization. We are leveraging these resources to
ensure our teams have the most current and effective tools and processes for restaurant sanitation. Our goal is to
ensure the restaurant policies we put in place meet or exceed their recommended guidelines.
Additionally, we have several cleaning and sanitation initiatives underway in all our locations. These initiatives
include increasing the frequency of restaurant cleaning with a focus on dining areas, restrooms and game rooms to
include game units themselves; increasing frequency of changing out buffet utensils; increasing the frequency of hand
washing to exceed the recommended standards.
Our heart goes out to all who have been impacted by the virus, and I want to personally thank all our franchisees,
operators, corporate employees and restaurant team members who have committed to protect our Guests and each
As the situations surrounding COVID-19 continue to change and evolve, what won’t change is our commitment to do
everything we can to help ensure the health and safety of everyone involved with the Cicis brand. We have earned
your trust and loyalty for 35 years and through our commitment to bringing you an unlimited quality buffet for a value
price, we want to thank you. As we have during other challenging world events, we will work tirelessly to persevere
through this one together.

March 19, 2020 Update:
This is, without a doubt, one of the most incredibly difficult times we have ever faced at Cameron Mitchell Restaurants. Like you, I am heartbroken and am anxiously awaiting the end of this global health crisis so that we can return to business as usual and invite you, our loyal guests, to dine with us once again.
Although we fully understand and agree with the actions of governors and public health officials to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and flatten the curve, the devastating impacts rippling through the restaurant community due to this situation cannot be overstated.
Our Associates are the backbone of CMR, and I am deeply concerned about their well-being during this unprecedented time. We are currently working with a core group of company leaders to identify ways we can support our Associates. I’m glad to share with you that CMR has established an Associate Relief Fund. We will be donating 100% of online gift card sale proceeds, from today through March 31, 2020, to this fund.
We will divide the fund proceeds evenly among our 4,000 Associates, and each Associate will receive a check in early April. While we can’t predict how much we will raise, we hope this effort will help them put food on their table during this time.
On behalf of CMR, thank you for considering purchasing a gift card before the end of the month to support our Associates. We look forward to welcoming you to your favorite CMR restaurant as soon as we’re able to reopen our doors. Our Great People Delivering Genuine Hospitality will be excited to greet you once again.
My wish for you and your loved ones is to stay healthy, to care for each other and to be strong as we navigate these uncharted waters together.
Thank you for your support of our team. Your Raving Fan,
Cameron Mitchell, Founder and CEO
We have been closely monitoring the evolving status of COVID-19 in the U.S. and globally over the last month. At this time, we are allowing customers to enter the restaurant to purchase and pick up take-out orders. Restrooms and dining room seating will remain closed until further notice. The health and safety of our customers, employees, and communities is our number one priority and we will continue to provide drive-thru, delivery, and mobile order pick-up. Thank you!
DoorDash remains vigilant in our efforts to help the communities we serve during this uncertain time. We are actively working to ensure the safety of customers and Dashers and supporting the local businesses who are being asked to change how they operate. The U.S. FDAhas stated that there is no evidence of food or food packaging being associated with the spread of COVID-19. With cities and states restricting business operations to minimize social contact, mayors and governors have called upon residents to use delivery and pickup services instead.
Here are the actions we’re taking to promote health and safety on our platform as well as to support the local businesses that remain open for delivery and pickup.
In addition to supporting customers, Dashers and restaurants we’re also joining forces with community organizations to deliver an estimated one million pounds of groceries and prepared food to vulnerable communities in need.
We’re in this together, and as the situation evolves, we’ll continue to do everything we can to serve our community. You can read more details about the programs above here. The entire DoorDash team thanks you for your support, and we will continue to keep you informed as we take additional action.
– The DoorDash Team
In the 35-year history of Union Square Hospitality Group, this is, without a doubt, the most challenging period any of us has ever encountered as leaders. Reconciling who we are as a people-first company with this brutal moment is nearly impossible.
We’ve successfully led through and weathered 9/11 and the financial crisis of 2008, but at no other point has there been such a sustained and massive dual threat to both the physical safety and economic livelihoods of our people, or the hospitality industry as a whole. We’ve always endeavored to put our people first, and so to conduct such a massive layoff of our cherished colleagues today leaves me gutted. Never could I have fathomed a time where the only path forward would be to lay people off so they can receive unemployment, while this company fights to see another day when we can return to our full staffing levels.
I said to my team last week that this is a time requiring both reality and hope, and today that is truer than ever. The reality is that we’ve had to make drastic and previously unimaginable choices for how we conduct business just to protect our team and our communities. The reality is that in doing so, our revenues have been decimated, and the foundation of our business has been seriously tested. In the absence of income, restaurants simply cannot pay our non-working team members for more than a short period of time without becoming insolvent. In that scenario, no one wins.
We have created a relief fund to help the employees affected by the layoffs today. To seed the effort, I’m immediately contributing my entire compensation, and our executive team is taking a meaningful pay cut. We will use these funds and other donations we collect to help those on our team that will face significant financial hardship in the weeks to come. Through March 24, 100% of the revenue generated by USHG gift cards purchased on our site will be directed toward that fund. We ask that friends of USHG restaurants join us in this effort.
However, we cannot depend simply on the generosity of our community alone. If ever there were a time to call on the government to provide enlightened leadership, it is now. Our employees need that support to sustain their livelihoods while waiting for our restaurants to reopen. I am calling on our city, state, and federal leadership to step in with a full emergency relief package for restaurant and bar workers, and I pledge my immediate service—on behalf of, and along with other industry leaders—to help come up with economic solutions that work for all. Our industry is both a significant employer and contributor to the fabric of life in New York.
There remains hope. Hope that this virus will be defeated. Hope that with the help of our government, we can find a way to create meaningful economic safeguards for all hospitality employees who have been forced out of their work. Hope that before too long, they will safely be able to come back to work alongside the people they love and to serve the public who love our restaurants. Hope that this industry itself will still be standing. Hope that the challenging steps we’re taking today will allow us to get back together, delighting our guests, investing in our communities, and buying products from our suppliers as soon as possible. My team and I are working diligently – using our heads and our hearts – to find every possible solution to this set of challenges. We cannot wait to bring our team back home to work. My video message to our team here.
To our valued guest,
In light of COVID-19 and out of concern for our guests, teams and communities at large, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close our restaurants until further notice.
We appreciate your support during these challenging times and look forward to serving you again soon.
To All Huey Magoo’s Valued Guests:
The safety of our team members and our guests is our highest priority. Each and every one of us in the Huey Magoo’s family takes great pride not only in the quality of our tenders, but also in the health and safety of all of our team members and loved guests. Due to increased concern over the impact of COVID-19, we are temporarily closing our dining room seating at all Huey Magoo’s locations but will still be serving Take Out orders directly from our restaurants and also offering Delivery through our third-party delivery services.
For Take Out, simply call in your phone orders for pick-up at your desired location or order online. Visit www.hueymagoos.com for a list of all locations and contact information. For Delivery, place your order through Uber Eats and DoorDash, offering delivery to Huey Magoo’s customers at participating locations. (Delivery is not available at Loganville, GA, but their pick-up window is now open, and the drive thru is open at our Ocoee, FL location.)
Huey Magoo’s high expectations of sanitary standards are always at the forefront of our minds. We will continue to overly scrutinize and maximize our sanitation practices to ensure the health and safety of our team members and everyone that visits our restaurants to pick up their orders to reduce any potential threat and help stop the spread of COVID-19. We are doing everything we can to ensure our team members are educated and prepared, to ensure their well-being and that of our guests.
We look forward to continuing to feed our neighborhoods the best chicken tenders in America. We will remain vigilant taking the above and beyond steps to protect our team members and our guests throughout this time. We are here for our neighborhoods, and we hope to return to normal business operations and fulfilling all Huey Magoo’s cravings as soon as possible.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate through this challenging time together.

Dear Nothing Bundt Cakes Guests,
Out of an abundance of care and caution, and in light of current public health concerns, our top priority is to focus on the health and well-being of our team members, guests and communities and help limit the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
