Food Service Workers Appreciation

Like so many others, during this pandemic, our 30-year-old, family business has been impacted in a way we never thought possible.  Due to Covid-19 and the recommendations set forth by the local authorities to help reduce the spread of the virus, Picasso Restaurant Group had to temporarily close locations and furlough over 140 employees.  As we watched sales plummet at locations which remained open, we quickly learned it would be financially beneficial for our organization to temporarily close all locations, including those in medical facilities.  The owners and employees spoke, and all agreed, it was our responsibility to stay open and help support first responders, essential workers and those that could not work remotely during these trying times.  We all elected to do so, even though we knew, to keep the business afloat, we would all have to take significant pay cuts… This was the only way. 

Although our business will survive, this year, we will not be able to give our employees a little something extra during the Holidays, nor will we be able to return wages back to their original levels until things normalize. 

We are now asking our valued patrons, if you would like to and if you are able, to please donate to our valued employees who have stayed to help us all through the pandemic and who have made our workdays a little brighter.  100% of the proceeds will go to these local heroes who have kept our bellies full and our bodies caffeinated. 

From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for your patronage, consideration, and donations.

All proceeds will go to these employees that we consider our own Hometown Heros!
