Farmer Boys, the Southern California-based fast casual concept known for its award-winning burgers and exceptional service, has shifted operations to emphasize phone-ahead ordering, carryout, and drive-thru service in compliance with all state and local regulations and mandates regarding restaurant operations. Third-party delivery services are also available at select locations. Customers can visit Farmer Boys’ VIF (Very Important Farmer) app, available to download in the Apple app store and on Google Play, for location-specific information on how to order & pick up your food.
“At Farmer Boys, our attention to the safety and well-being of our guests, team members, and communities is one of our core values and is our highest priority,” said Larry Rusinko, vice president and chief marketing officer. “While we have temporarily closed our dining room seating in accordance with statewide mandates and the CDC’s suggestions pertaining to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are happy to offer service at our cooked to order drive-thru lanes, in addition to phone ahead, carryout, and delivery via third party apps at some locations.”
Additionally, while team members’ hours may be reduced as a result of the operational adjustments at some restaurants, all corporate-owned locations are committed to avoiding layoffs as a result of COVID-19. In further support, Farmer Boys corporate has established a $200,000 Farmer Boys Hardship Fund to help financially support Farmer Boys’ team members at corporate-owned locations during these uncertain times. Farmer Boys’ senior corporate executive team is contributing to the fund, and all restaurant support team members are invited to also contribute at their discretion.
