To Our Loyal Guests,

Given the current (and escalating) circumstances with COVID-19, we wanted to provide an update on how Flagship Restaurant Group will be moving forward.

First and foremost, the safety and health of our staff, guests and community is our number 1 priority. We feel that in the best interest of our communities and in making the effort to do our part we have decided to close all of our stores across the nation effective March 16th.  We will reopen only when we feel it is safe to do so. As everyone is aware, the situation with COVID-19 is rapidly changing each day and as our plans change we will be sure to let you know.

We will miss serving you during this brief 'pause' but look forward to seeing you once again when we re-open. We hope our actions will encourage others within our community (and across our nation) to practice social distancing to help flatten the curve of the spread of this virus.

We look forward to seeing all of you again very soon.

Most Sincerely,

Nick, Tom, Anthony, Tony
