The health and safety of our guests, as well as our family of employees, is the No. 1 priority for the Shawarma Inn Restaurants. As a fixture in the Chicago community for nearly 15 years, it is our responsibility to be proactive in challenging times. 

Currently, we are following guidance and recommendations from the city of the Chicago Health Department and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), while continuing to evaluate our standard procedures. Our restaurants have been meeting food safety and sanitation standards for over a decade, so these protocols are already in place, and we continue to maintain the highest possible standards in service and product quality.

However, as we continue to monitor current events, we are increasing these protocols, with additional layers of caution and mindfulness, to provide peace of mind to our guests and team members.

These changes include:

  • Increasing the frequency of cleaning practices and decontamination procedures within our restaurants.

  • Limiting guest interaction with curbside pick up, and front door deliveries.

  • Increased presence and use of hand sanitizers and soap along with wearing a mask at all times and wearing gloves while preparing your meal. 

  • Ensuring that our staff are continuously updated and educated on preventative measures outlined by the the Chicago Health Department and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Additionally, all staff members have been advised not to report to work and to seek medical attention if they are experiencing flu-like symptoms or have come into contact with affected individuals.

As is the case nationwide, we are seeing an early impact on our business. However, we are also seeing a tremendous surge in support throughout this community – united in an effort to keep everyone safe and healthy.
