We are Open! Click for our COVID-19: Notice to All Guests

To all our Sapp Bros. guests and the communities we serve:

As coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to impact us all, we want you to know that our customer’s and our teammate’s safety is always our highest priority and at the heart of every decision we make. We are vigilantly monitoring local and national reports of the evolving COVID-19 situation. Sapp Bros. intends to continue to meet the needs and expectations of our customers. Drivers, transporters, and farmers are essential in the delivery of the necessary items our nation relies on to continue to keep moving forward. We are committed to continuing to serve you. With that being said, it is imperative that we all do our part to assist with our nation’s preventative measures of the COVID-19. Along with cancelling any non-essential vendor meetings at our locations, reducing the sizes of our staff meetings, and reviewing protocols should we have an employee that is sick or is exposed to COVID-19, we are taking the following precautions.

Our restaurants will remain open as long as the government allows. We are looking to the CDC, FDA and local officials for guidance while navigating these evolving circumstances. We will follow all government mandated occupancy rules. Many states have already limited restaurants to take-out only, which we must abide by. Food options will still be available at our locations. The health and safety of our guests and our teammates has always been part of our culture. We’ve taken extra precautions to ensure that now more than ever.

We’d like to remind all of our guests and teammates to follow the FIVE:

  • 2. ELBOW – Cough into it
  • 3. FACE – Don’t touch it
  • 4. FEET – Stay more than 6 ft. apart

We will continue to monitor the situation and adjust any actions taken, as necessary, to protect our customers and teammates.


We’re all in this together!
