Joe's Taco Lounge Employee Fund

The Joe’s Taco Family needs your help. We are so grateful to you for all the take-out orders these past 2 weeks – those orders are keeping our doors open.  However, more than half of our staff has been laid off with no recourse or opportunity for alternate employment during this period.  It breaks my heart, but at our reduced volume, I cannot keep everyone employed.  We know these are extraordinary and difficult time for everyone, including many of you.  And we know this isn’t the first plea of this sort that many of you will have received.

For nearly 30 years, Joe’s Taco Lounge has survived and thrived as a part of this community. Our employees have created, prepared, and cooked your meals, befriended you and your kids, and brought smiles to your faces during your dining experiences at Joe’s.  Our employees have an average tenure of over 17 years employment here, and we believe that’s a large part of our success and the experience we are able to provide to our diners.  Nobody owes them more than Marni and I do, but we’re in unprecedented times and the need is greater than what we can provide on our own.  

If you are able and willing, I’m asking for your generosity to help our staff.  Please, if you can, GIVE.  The money will be distributed equitably amongst our employees to help bridge the gap until we are able to rehire every single one of our beloved team members.
