For Communities, by Communities

In addition to our custom menu items, we’re joining forces with these businesses to donate community grants to local nonprofits of their choice (sometimes, it’s even their own nonprofit!). We’re excited to continue sharing the stories and impacts of these businesses throughout the year and help communities discover, shop, and dine local.
