Schnucks sells grab-and-go meals from local restaurants
St. Louis-based grocer Schnucks Markets is stepping up to the plate to help the food service industry amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The company announced that it is helping local restaurants sell their grab-and-go meals in the company’s St. Louis-area stores.
“As a part of the St. Louis business community for more than 80 years, we feel we have an obligation to help those local restaurant entrepreneurs and their staffs, who have been greatly impacted by the pandemic,” said Schnucks president and COO Dave Peacock. “Schnucks hopes that by supporting local restaurants that our customers will continue to support local businesses too.”
Customers will find meals from local favorites, including iRevel Kitchen, Crispy Edge, Seoul Taco, Nudo House STL, Crushed Red, and Hot Box Cookies at select Schnucks locations.
“As a supporter of the St. Louis community for over 30 years, we are proud to partner with Schnucks to offer the community access to our food,” said Qui Tran, owner of Nudo House STL and Mai Lee. “Schnucks has been on the forefront of helping local restaurants in the area find ways to keep our employees working during this pandemic, and we are grateful for their leadership.”
Schnucks also is looking to expand this concept to additional stores in the St. Louis area. For a complete list of participating Schnucks stores, click here.
