Bernie's & Frankel's Employee Fund

Dear Friends and Family of Frankel's & Bernie's,

Closing our restaurants temporarily has been the most difficult decision of our lives. We share in the pain of not only our staff but the millions around the country who have lost their livelihoods. Our employees are the heartbeat of our restaurants. Not only do they make everything possible, they make it joyful and worthwhile. 

We have always tried to fight for our staff and provide them with a safe and uplifting environment. Now, more than ever, we are being called to action to fight for them. We are doing everything we can to help them and that means appealing to you: our community, friends and family. 

100% of proceeds will go directly to our staff to help them during this time of lost income. In such uncertain times, the one thing we can be sure of is that our staff is hurting. If you can, any donation will be helpful to our team while we navigate the coming days. 

We have every intention of re-opening our restaurants and bringing every employee back into a safe space to serve our community. 

With profound love and gratitude, 

Zach Frankel & Taylor McEwan
