El Mariachi Restaurant's Staff

During these trying times we have been faced with very difficult decisions that affect everyone but especially our staff.  We attempted to continue to operate with curbside and delivery service, however, due to the recent recommendations from government officials we have decided to close our doors to both of our locations, El Mariachi and El Mariachi Tequila Bar and Grill, for the safety of our staff and guests. This decision has greatly impacted our staff. While many industries are being impacted, the service industry is one of the hardest hit.  We are a local family owned business that has been operating for 24 years and we know that many of you have built relationships with and appreciate many of our staff members.  We would like to reach out to our awesome community to help us give our staff some financial assistance during these difficult times.  Anything you can contribute will be greatly appreciated. We would like to initiate the donation efforts with $1000 donation for our team.   We will distribute the funds equally amongst our staff to help them pay for the essential necessities while we are closed.  We know that banding together and helping one another out makes these difficult times better and we want to thank you in advance for your contributions.  We look forward to reopening our doors in the near future for our loyal customers and community.
