DIVERSIFIED BARS AND RESTAURANTS TO RAISE FUNDS FOR SERVICE STAFF THROUGH GIFT CARD SALES
100% of gift card sale proceeds will be donated to staff at No Name Saloon/The Annex, Boneyard Saloon, Wine Dive, Butcher’s Chop House & Bar
In an immediate effort to support employees in the wake of the Summit County Health Department ban on dine-in service that is effective today, March 15, Diversified Bars and Restaurants (DBR) will donate the proceeds of all gift card sales to its service staff family. Gift cards to DBR-owned establishments in Park City can be purchased online at No Name Saloon/The Annex, Butcher’s Chop House & Bar, and Boneyard Saloon/Wine Dive. Given the loss of work during Park City’s peak spring break season, the loss of income hospitality workers depend on will be a great hardship.
“We understand and accept the closures are essential to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and to protect our staff, customers, and community,” acknowledges Jesse Shetler, Principal Owner of Diversified Bars and Restaurants. “Our family of staff members is legitimately concerned by the detrimental loss of income they typically rely on in March to get them through shoulder season. The outpouring of support from the close-knit Park City community is a massive source of comfort to them. We developed the gift card sale promotion as a vehicle for community members who are eager to help to do so, and we look forward to welcoming customers back when we can safely reopen, undoubtedly with additional protocols in place.”
DBR is currently developing additional methods to support its staff. Meanwhile, the company is educating employees on how to stay healthy, offering guidance on how to work with their lenders and landlords to reduce payments, and providing healthcare-related resources.
“Our town has been through challenging times in the past, including September 11th and the recession that followed, and we always get through them stronger than ever. The generosity that our community is known for is crucial in helping small businesses and hospitality staff overcome this public health crisis,” says Ron Wedig, Managing Partner of DBR.
