MAJOR RESTAURANT GROUPS COLLABORATE FOR SAFETY BY REQUIRING FACE COVERINGS
Cunningham Restaurant Group and Huse Culinary ask patrons to wear masks when walking in and out of restaurants
INDIANAPOLIS – In an effort to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to promote collaboration and consistency within all restaurants already adhering to mask mandates, the requirement affects 15 additional Cunningham Restaurant Group eateries (Boulder Creek in Brownsburg, Ind.; Bru Burger Bar locations in Brownsburg, Carmel, Evansville, Lafayette, Noblesville, Plainfield, Ind., and South Bend, IN; Charbonos in Avon, Ind.; CRG Event Center in Plainfield, Ind.; Rize, Fishers; and Stone Creek in Greenwood, Plainfield, Noblesville and Zionsville, Ind.) and two Huse Culinary locations (1933 Lounge by St. Elmo and The HC Tavern + Kitchen both in Fishers, Ind.).
“Our focus, more than ever, is on the health and safety of everyone who enters our doors and our employees,” said Craig Huse, CEO of Huse Culinary. “Wearing a mask is a simple way to help keep all of us safe while still being able to enjoy dining out. Both Huse Culinary and Cunningham Restaurant Group are committed to reducing the spread of COVID-19 by asking patrons to join our employees in wearing face coverings.”
According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines, “Cloth face coverings are most likely to reduce the spread of COVID-19 when they are widely used in public settings” combined with social distancing and frequent hand-washing.
“We would like to ask our loyal guests to help us keep our staff and our fellow patrons safe and healthy. We feel this is our best chance to control the spread of Covid-19 which will allow our staff to continue working and our restaurants to remain open,” said Mike Cunningham, President and CEO of Cunningham Restaurant Group. “We appreciate your assistance in this matter and we all look forward to seeing you soon.”
Both restaurant groups will continue adhering to safety practices including social distancing, increased sanitation, frequent hand-washing and face masks. Patrons do not need to wear a mask while dining. Guests who are not able to wear a mask due to medical conditions are asked to consider a face shield.
Cunningham Restaurant Group’s restaurants include Boulder Creek, Bru Burger Bar, Café 251, Charbonos, Livery, Mesh, Moerlein Lager House, Nesso Italian Kitchen, Provision, Rize, Stone Creek Dining Company, Tavern at the Point, Union 50 and Vida.
