Loco Pez Graduate Hospital Employee Relief Fund

Like many Philadelphia businesses, Loco Pez was forced to close dine-in operations and shift to carry out only on March 16, 2020 due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Unfortunately, this was required to protect our staff, guests, and community as a whole. 

Our staff rely on tips and their paychecks to make ends meet, and no longer being able to have guests dine in has severely impacted their abilities to make a living.

Our staff are the backbone of this business; they are the ones who bring you a margarita and make you smile after a long day at work, who cook you tasty food, and who create a place for you to unwind. We need our community to help provide them the financial support to get through this time. 

Every dollar raised will go directly to hourly and tipped staff, both front and back of house. We are calling on you, our loyal patrons and friends to help them out. 

Anyone who donates $50 will be given one of our much loved Pez dispensers as a token of gratitude (sanitized, of course). If you contribute $100 to help our beloved staff, we will be sending you an invite to join us at a thank you party at Loco Pez when all this is over and we are safe to gather together once more - tacos, margaritas, and fun on us. 

We have retained many staff members who will be working our take out counter, and encourage customers to be sure to tip on take out orders to show appreciation. Thank you in advance for your contributions, they are greatly appreciated.
