Please help support our amazing staff at Rioja

Donation protected
We have always considered our staff our family. Our staff is dedicated to hospitality and truly care about our guests' experience. They go to great efforts to take care of our guests and one another every day. Right now, our entire staff has been laid off so that we can have businesses for them to return to after the coronavirus recedes. It breaks our hearts that our staff is struggling during this time. All of our staff is choosing between unemployment or taking other jobs to support their families. They are experiencing significant of financial hardship - wondering how we will be able to pay rent, utilities, and bills. Most of our staff is considering eliminating “luxuries” such as health care and any other household standards that we all take for granted.

Our families are lost without one another during this time and the financial struggle is real. I hope you can help support our staff that takes great pride in taking care of you when you are in our restaurant. I know they all look forward to welcoming you back to Rioja when we can reopen with full service to take care of you.  
Jen and I appreciate your support to help us keep our good people in a better financial situation for this challenging time.

Thought you may enjoy a throw back picture of our opening!!
