Our much beloved Zachary’s Restaurant has been heavily damaged by a fire that will knock out our service for months to come. We have insurance, we can rebuild to be better than ‘before’!

Right now our biggest need is to help support our amazing staff! 

Our fearless leader, Doug Pellum, has one concern on the forefront of his mind, and that’s staff support. Please consider donating to our relief fund! If staff can’t work, tips can’t be made, bills can’t be paid!

People in Columbus adore Zachary’s for its delicious food and philanthropic attitude. It takes a small army of talented staff to create those dishes, work fundraisers, and keep the restaurant running on a daily basis.

I have created an arbitrary number as the goal for this fundraiser. In reality the number would be too difficult to quantify. All money donated will be given to Doug to disperse to the staff. 

More fundraising details will come! Colin Krieger and I are on the roll; you’ll be hearing even more from us soon. Please follow us on FB for more updates and Share, Share, Share!

A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who’s donated to help support our staff. We are incredibly grateful for all of the love we’ve been shown in the past couple of weeks. We hope we can make you proud with our comeback!

While this GoFundMe page will soon be closed, there will still be ways to give. Our last fundraiser will be held on May 18th, from 1pm to 7pm at the Trotter Convention Center. We’d be honored to have you there. There’s going to be a major music lineup. There will also be an auction and raffle. Check out our Facebook event, The Big Payback, for more details.

The Zachary’s Facebook page is also a great way to keep up with our progress until the re-opening. As the doors close for demolition, our staff will be out volunteering in the community because of your support. Follow us to see how we are paying your support forward with our time!

The Zachary's Team would like to thank everyone who's donated so far! We are so appreciative of your support! OUR COMMUNITY IS AMAZING!!!

So amazing that Dates/Times have already been confirmed for TWO upcoming fundraisers!
Huck's will be hosting one this Saturday night, May 4th, from 7-12am and the community at large will be hosting one on May 18th at the Trotter from 1-7pm. Each will have a $10 cover, live music, and delicious food! The Trotter event will also have a raffle and separate auction items.

We would love to see you at either of these parties or BOTH! If you cannot attend, please help us out by sharing these events on Facebook. You can also help by getting involved! We will be looking for volunteers, auction/raffle items, and yummy food for the Trotter event. Details will come on the Zachary's FB page with the contact info for our coordinators.

We are also open to functional help as we rebuild the restaurant. The community has rallied. The Contractor has stated that he will be working 7 days a week to make sure we are up and running in record time. Sunflower has donated giftcards to our employees to help them with groceries, Columbus2Go and many restaurants have given our employees meals as they work to salvage what we can from the fire. SMART security and technology has donated a fire alarm system as part of the rebuild, others have donated warehouse space, storage and hauling. Please contact Lindsey Beck at lmbeck2188@gmail.com if you have any additional help to give on this front. Any seemingly random thing might be just what we need.

Again, we cannot thank you enough for your support. It has meant the world to us! We get through this together or not at all.

-Long Live Zachary's
P.S.- Peace for the Leonards' on this difficult day. Mark Leonard lives on in all our hearts.
