During the difficult times of the Covid-19 "stay at home" pandemic, we have taken an initiative to offer delicious take-out items including our full-menu, family style catering items and even craft beer growlers and cans.
Initially, it was an adjustment to accommodate take-out on a large-scale to the public, but, we quickly fine-tuned our operations and it is now running smooth as silk. Upon ordering, we will take your mobile number and finalize the payment over the phone while providing an expected "stage time." Once the food is ready, we send a text to our customers so that they can approach our front door for curbside-pickup services. We are not at the moment letting patrons inside for added safety and have decided to take payment over the phone to minimize the chance of spreading germs. Our customers have also begun to take advantage of our website online ordering option which allows them to complete payment online and receive the expected carryout-time.
Previously, we never delivered, but due to the need for public quarantining, we've decided to partner with Doordash delivery services in the event our patrons wanted food delivered with a "no-contact", "stay at home" approach. It has been working out extremely well, and we are thankful for the opportunity to offer home delivery to our Woodbridge New Jersey patrons.
At one time not so long ago, toilet-paper & paper-towel rolls were very scarce so we wanted to offer the items we had on hand. To make a long story short, NJ.com reached out to us after their writers we're intrigued of our offerings. You can see more about this story by clicking here.
Our patrons began requesting draft beer takeout and it has been something we always wanted to do. We now sell "Strawberrys Pub Branded Growlers" so that customers who are yet to own one can represent Woodbridge, NJ at other fill stations. We also added to our craft-beer-list and introduced five New Jersey craft beers on draft and five NJ craft-beer cans so that our beer drinkers can experience something new each time they visit.
We are remaining calm but are anticipating the news from the govenor of when we can open our doors for inside beverage and dining services. Thank you to all who have patronized our pub, it has allowed us to remain staffed and open to the public.
