SAN ANGELO, Texas — Since Gov. Greg Abbott has declared limiting social gatherings to 10 people, avoiding bars, dine-in restaurants and gyms, local restaurants have been finding different ways to serve their customers.
We spoke with owners from two San Angelo restaurants to see what they have planned moving forward to continue to serve their customers.
Nacho’s owner Simon Rincon wants to increase food delivery to serve the community quicker. Also, he is looking to set up food trailers in two locations to serve more of the community, but everything will be based out of Nacho’s.
It is a rough time, but Rincon said he has a way to serve his customers while following the governor's declaration.
Likewise with Mathis Airport Cafe, located at the San Angelo Regional Airport. With travel slowing down along with the declaration going into effect March 20, Debbie Champion’s restaurant will see less business. What is she going to do different?
Mathis Airport Cafe sees many different cultures because of San Angelo having a military installation, so her restaurant not only sees regulars, also sees military personnel.
Because of the declaration, Mathis Airport Cafe will still serve customers, but no one would be allowed inside. There will be no face to face contact inside of the restaurant to practice social distancing.
She had one uplifting message for her customers, and she said “it takes our community to come support us and it is all in faith, keeping it up.”
