The Arizona Restaurant Association (ARA) is responding to the recent state of emergency by creating an effort to help support local dining establishments with the debut of Arizona Takeout Week.
Arizona Takeout Week is now in effect and will run through the completion of the Coronavirus closures. AZ Takeout Week will help restaurants and those patrons who depend on them for daily sustenance, survive what is an unprecedented crisis in the industry.
The culinary industry has a powerful impact on our economy. There are more than 10,000 Arizona dining establishments that employ more than 229,000 staff with annual restaurant sales of $13.4 billion.
“We appreciate and thank Governor Ducey for his efforts in working with the restaurant industry to mitigate the spread of the Coronavirus,” says Arizona Restaurant Association President and CEO Steve Chucri. “The Arizona restaurant family appreciates his work and that of all elected leaders in our state during this unparalleled time in our history.”
The event already has more than 100 participating restaurant locations. View participating restaurants here.
This effort is free for restaurants and all are invited to email their current menus and service hours to [email protected]. Diners are encouraged to go to the official Arizona Takeout Week website at www.aztakeoutweek.com to learn more and start dining on the go!
