How to support your local restaurant workers during the shutdown.

As everyone knows by now, dine-in restaurants have been closed by Michigan Governor Whitmer to help battle the COVID-19 virus.

While this may keep the public healthy, it is devastating for restaurants and their team members. If we support each other, businesses in our community, and the people that work for them, we will pull through this just fine.

Many shops, including Bacco Ristorante and Pernoi, are adapting menus for delivery and curbside pick-up to serve our customers as we wait out the lock down. To help sustain our valued team members, Bacco and Pernoi gift cards are available, incentivized with 20% additional value on card purchases of $1,000 or more, and 15% added value on cards under $1,000. To take advantage of this exceptional offer, please call to place your request.

You can give other restaurants a fighting chance, by buying a gift card (or more) through a generous promotion sponsored by Toast. Your favorite restaurants are suffering as a result of the COVID-19 health crisis. Sales are down across the country and jobs are at risk. Join the Rally for Restaurants movement today, buy a gift card (or five, or more), and challenge your friends to do the same. Give yourself something to look forward to while giving your favorite restaurants’ workers a fighting chance.

Share your contribution on social using #RallyforRestaurants and tag the restaurant, and we’ll give $1 to organizations supporting the community through (up to $250,000).*
