Supporting Local Restaurants Amidst COVID-19

Regency Homebuilders Small Business Strong

In light of current news – especially in how it affects the restaurant industry, we have compiled a list of some of our Regency Homebuilders Family favorites that are offering new take-out and delivery options. (Scroll to bottom for list)

Amidst the concern, craziness and uncertainty, one thing that we remain certain of is the need to support small, local businesses.

While Regency Homebuilders is the largest homebuilder in the Greater Memphis Area, we are, nonetheless, a small business. As our employees, customers, and vendors continue to depend on us we will weather the storm as best that we can. We are practicing social distancing, limiting nonessential access to our office and taking extra precautions; thoroughly cleaning before and after every appointment in both our Design Studio and Model Homes.

We feel extremely fortunate to have our jobs and the ability to continue our work through this time; especially as a small, family-oriented, business. As we reflect on our blessings, we also keep in mind other local businesses who do not have the option to continue business as usual.

During times like these, it is our responsibility to support our restaurant industry, to help them stay afloat, to ensure their employees are able to keep their jobs and get paid.

For many of us, eating out is an almost daily occurrence. This is daily income, tips, and job security that is no longer a constant for our friends in the restaurant industry.

Regency Homebuilders would like to invite everyone to take the number of meals that they typically eat out every week – and continue to do so through take out, delivery, and pre-made meal options that are being offered through local restaurants.

This not only helps local businesses in need, but also benefits you by giving you one less thing to worry about. With schools and daycares closing, groceries becoming scarce and many of us beginning to work from home; our daily responsibilities and “to-dos” have multiplied – and we all know cooking a meal for your family is not always a small task. Help our local businesses by letting them help you.

While there are countless businesses to support, we’ve included a list of some of the Regency Homebuilders Family favorites that are offering new take-home and delivery options that we know would love your support.
