Arizona Restaurant Association Announces ‘Arizona Take Out Weeks’
The Arizona Restaurant Association (ARA) is responding to shutdowns caused by the COVID-19 virus by debuting Arizona Takeout Weeks.
Arizona Take Out Weeks will help restaurants and those diners who depend on them for daily sustenance survive what is an unprecedented crisis in the industry. The week is now in effect and will run through the entirety of restaurant closures.
The initiative serves to help diners and those who depend on dining establishments as a food source find restaurants offering pick-up, curbside, and delivery options during this time and aid restaurants in marketing their service options during the closure.
Carrying on with their service, even if it’s just the delivery portion of it, will make a huge difference to not only the people who are in need of their food, but to the restaurant itself. Whilst they still may be required to look for these sone pandemic safety signs for a restaurant whilst offering their delivery service, it will also put them in good stead when it is has been deemed safe enough to open again as normal. But for now, this is a step in the right direction for restaurant workers and people in need.
“We appreciate and thank Governor Ducey for his efforts in working with the restaurant industry to mitigate the spread of the Coronavirus,” says Arizona Restaurant Association President and CEO Steve Chucri. “The Arizona restaurant family appreciates his work and that of all elected leaders in our state during this unparalleled time in our history.”
The event already has more than 100 participating restaurant locations including:
Rusconi’s American Kitchen
Phoenix City Grille
Jewell’s Bakery and Café
S&V Urban Italian
Trapp Haus BBQ
Original Breakfast House
This initiative is free for restaurants and all are invited to email their current menus and service hours to firstname.lastname@example.org. Diners are encouraged to go to the official Arizona Takeout Weeks website at www.aztakeoutweek.com to learn more and start dining on the go.
