Nookies Edgewater Employee Relief Fund

Nookies has been the cornerstone of Chicago communities for 47 years, serving you, our patrons.   

At this time, our staff, the Nookies Family is in need of help. In light of the closures of all restaurants in Illinois for dine in service many of our hourly wage employees will be forced to, for the foreseeable future, go without work. 

We have started three separate GoFundMe pages one for Nookies on Wells, Nookies Too and Nookies Edgewater.  We realize that many of you are regulars at certain locations and have fostered special relationships with our staff.   

We are keeping the accounts separate in the hopes that all donations can be used to alleviate the economic burden the closures will cost our staff at the specific locations.  We will still be open for carry out and curb side pickup during this time to try to continue to serve our communities. 

We thank all of you for your patronage and your support.  Without you these past 47 years would not have been possible.   Together we can get through these difficult times.
