West Bend business celebrates anniversary by giving to restaurants, nonprofits affected by coronavirus
WEST BEND, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A business in West Bend is celebrating its 40th anniversary during the coronavirus pandemic, and even though this is not a great time for business, it's reaching out to help others.
The company is trying to help not only nonprofit groups who are also hit hard by the pandemic, but workers in service industries -- in this case, restaurants.
The effort started Thursday at the Precinct Tap and Table restaurant in Germantown, and the magic number is 40.
"We've chosen four Washington County restaurants to make 40 meals each for 40 great local nonprofits. We plan to tip the service staff 40 percent in celebration of our 40th anniversary," said Craig Sadownikow of American Construction Services.
"A cook is not a cook without something to cook," said Precinct Tap & Table's Executive Chef, Jodi Janisse-Kanzenbach. "So anything to keep us busy, keep our hands busy, keep us moving, keep us positive is awesome, and anything that you can do to support any local restaurant is what you should be doing right now."
The meals prepared Thursday are going to seniors serviced by Interfaith Caregivers of Washington County.
