Today Is The Great American Take Out Day
Now's the perfect time to help out your favorite eateries, and take a break from your own kitchen at the same time.
Regardless of a global pandemic, everybody's gotta eat, right?
Coalition brands, which include California Pizza Kitchen, Chevys Fresh Mex, El Torito, The Habit Restaurants Inc., Jason’s Deli, Lemonade, Modern Market, Noodles & Company, Panera Bread and Veggie Grill, are encouraging U.S. consumers to order at least one delivery or pick-up meal on Tuesday to show support for the restaurant community, which is struggling after state and city closures of dining rooms to stem the spread of the COVID-19 infection.
Some of the brands in the coalition, such as Veggie Grill and Xperience Restaurant Group (Chevys and El Torito), are with the ad agency behind the campaign, Los Angeles-based High Wide & Handsome. Other brands participating include: The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Tocaya Organica, Torchy’s Tacos, Lucille’s Smokehouse Bar-B-Que, Primanti Brothers, Tropical Smoothie Café Shari’s Restaurant Group, Beefsteak, Which Wich Superior Sandwiches, ZaLat Pizza, Sharky’s Woodfired Mexican Grill, California Tortilla, Qdoba Mexican Eats and Black Bear Diner.
