Weber's Maintains Thanksgiving Tradition During The Pandemic Through Carryout Orders

Nov 25, 2020

As a result of the new COVID-19 state guidelines that prohibit indoor dining, Weber’s Restaurant in Ann Arbor is focusing on carryout orders this Thanksgiving Day.  


Weber’s Restaurant usually serves about 3,000 people inside their dining room on Thanksgiving Day, but with a carryout-only option right now, that number is expected to drop to about 1,500 this year.  However, that’s enough to help keep over 30 employees on the payroll while the dining room is closed.  Michael Weber is vice-president of Weber’s.

Michael Weber: It’s great, everybody will be very busy this week prepping all the food and serving it on Thanksgiving.

Weber says it’s important for them to offer their Thanksgiving meal option, even during the pandemic, because it’s a tradition for many people to eat at Weber’s on Thanksgiving Day.
