March 19, 2020 Update:
This is, without a doubt, one of the most incredibly difficult times we have ever faced at Cameron Mitchell Restaurants. Like you, I am heartbroken and am anxiously awaiting the end of this global health crisis so that we can return to business as usual and invite you, our loyal guests, to dine with us once again.
Although we fully understand and agree with the actions of governors and public health officials to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and flatten the curve, the devastating impacts rippling through the restaurant community due to this situation cannot be overstated.
Our Associates are the backbone of CMR, and I am deeply concerned about their well-being during this unprecedented time. We are currently working with a core group of company leaders to identify ways we can support our Associates. I’m glad to share with you that CMR has established an Associate Relief Fund. We will be donating 100% of online gift card sale proceeds, from today through March 31, 2020, to this fund.
We will divide the fund proceeds evenly among our 4,000 Associates, and each Associate will receive a check in early April. While we can’t predict how much we will raise, we hope this effort will help them put food on their table during this time.
On behalf of CMR, thank you for considering purchasing a gift card before the end of the month to support our Associates. We look forward to welcoming you to your favorite CMR restaurant as soon as we’re able to reopen our doors. Our Great People Delivering Genuine Hospitality will be excited to greet you once again.
My wish for you and your loved ones is to stay healthy, to care for each other and to be strong as we navigate these uncharted waters together.
Thank you for your support of our team. Your Raving Fan,
Cameron Mitchell, Founder and CEO
