RESPONSE TO COVID-19
The safety of our customers, employees, delivery staff and restaurant servers has always been a matter of top priority for us – now more than ever before. We want to assure our customers our catering food preparation and delivery services are diligently following all guidelines recommended by the CDC, WHO and FDA for best practices on keeping our customers and guests healthy and informed.
Our teams across all of our properties conduct rigorous cleaning of kitchen surfaces, sanitizing cooking utensils and cookware several times throughout the day. Further, we follow exhaustive cleaning, sanitation, and disinfection protocols that meet or exceed extensive industry guidelines. These protocols, which assist with illness prevention, include:
• Regular sanitation training and reinforcement for our team members.
• Clearly established cleaning and disinfection cycles for all areas.
• Prominent placement of hand washing facilities and hand sanitizers.
• Fast response to off-cycle cleaning issues.
• Gloves and sanitizing spray are required for use for all drivers and in all delivery vehicles, along with recommended protocols for frequent vehicle cleaning/wipe-downs.
To help prevent the spread of the virus, we’re encouraging anyone who feels sick or may be compromised to stay home.
We encourage you to visit CDC FAQs for more information and updates. Please feel free to visit our websites or to contact at any time with questions or concerns you may have now and in the future.
The CDC and the FDA have provided this information concerning restaurant and food handling. We share it with you as you make choices for your family during this time of uncertainty.
“Coronaviruses are generally thought to be spread from person-to-person through respiratory droplets. Currently there is no evidence to support transmission of COVID-19 associated with food.” – CDC
“We are not aware of any reports at this time of human illnesses that suggest COVID-19 can be transmitted by food or food packaging. However, it is always important to follow good hygiene practices (i.e., wash hands and surfaces often, separate raw meat from other foods, cook to the right temperature, and refrigerate foods promptly) when handling or preparing foods.” – FDA
