Recently we published a post about what we are doing to help ensure a safe environment at Hops N Shine during this pandemic. You can read the full letter below. Customers have also asked what they can do to support our business and our employees during a time where business is uncertain. Washington City Paper wrote a great article about the various ways to help. If you don’t feel safe dining with us, we encourage you to to patronize us in three particular ways.
Carry Out – We have already seen an uptick in delivery and carry out orders. The best possible way is to order directly through our system. This ensures all of the funds go to our business, and gives you the opportunity to tip our staff. As an added bonus if you download the app and use the code ‘TAKE5’ you will receive $5 off of your first order.
Delivery – GrubHub recently announced that they are suspending their fees for independent restaurants using their network. Most delivery services take a 30% cut from what you pay, leaving us with a very small margin. Thank you to GrubHub for their support of independent businesses.
E-Gift Cards – Want to show us some love now, and come enjoy our company at a later date? You are able to purchase e-gift cards to show us that you will come back to support us in the future.
Below was our first letter to our patrons on steps we are taking to protect them. We will continue to update you on steps we take as they are implemented.
Dear Valued Patrons,
As the coronavirus pandemic spreads and more information becomes readily available, our team at Hops N Shine would like to assure you we are taking the proper steps to protect your safety and well-being.
In addition to increasing and enhancing our normal cleaning procedures, which include disinfecting and polishing all surfaces and equipment, we are planning to add hand sanitizing stations throughout the restaurant for guests and staff. We have also re-educated our team in the proper cleaning and hand washing techniques recommended by food and safety professionals and are investing in hospital grade cleaning supplies, disposable gloves and wet naps.
As more information becomes available from the authorities regarding the coronavirus, we will continue adjusting our methods and operations to best serve you. We encourage you to visit our website and follow us on social media for the latest news, updates, and interactive features to stay connected to our establishment. You can also find guidelines on the CDC site on how to best keep you and your family safe and healthy during this time.
This remains a complicated and rapidly evolving situation that reminds us we are all part of a broader society with a responsibility to look out for one another. We are abundantly grateful for your understanding and continued business.
Hops N Shine
