Beloved Mexican Restaurant Reopening, Donating 500 Meals to Food Banks & Essential Workers


While Gov. Doug Ducey gave Arizona eateries the all-clear to reopen this week, the team at Macayo’s is taking a few extra days to make final preparations.

Macayo’s Mexican restaurants will resume in-person operations statewide starting Monday, May 18. While guests should expect to see social distancing measures in place, they can rest assured that the menu and service they’ve come to expect from Macayo’s in its nearly 75-year history will remain unchanged.

What IS changing are the measures team members are taking to ensure guest safety, which include wearing masks, gloves, increasing the frequency of sanitation and cleaning efforts to every half-hour, sanitizing multi use items in between seatings, and maintaining social distancing throughout the eateries.

“The safety of our guests and our team has always been a top priority, we are bringing our staff back to work, retraining them and getting them ready for the new normal. We’ve also partnered up with Local First Arizona and Awe Collective on a new restaurant guide to help provide insight to other restaurants in the community on the best ways to do just that” said Macayo’s Nava Singam. “We also want to thank our loyal customers for their support, which kept us going throughout this difficult time, and also our essential workers who have kept our communities afloat.”

Throughout the last couple of months, Macayo’s has been donating food to essential worker groups, and organizations as an ongoing effort to show their thanks and appreciation. And now, with your support of their Family Pack program, partnered with friend Chef Silvana Salcido, they are honored to announce on Monday, May 18th Macayo’s will be donating an additional 500 free meals to local hospitals, fire departments and food banks, the day Macayo’s eateries reopen for dine-in across the state.

“We want to make sure our fans know that we are making every possible effort to make things safe as we open back up to the public,” Singam said. “With these new measures in place, we’re excited to welcome fans back inside of our Macayo’s.”
