Jaleo’s Instagram page recently posted promoting the new employee relief effort:
“In response to an outpouring of support from the community about how to help our team during restaurant closures, we created a special e-gift card program. Starting today, you can purchase a gift card for 20% off, and all of the money will go directly toward our employees: half of it to extending pay and benefits beyond two weeks, and half of it to ThinkFamilyFund, which provides relief to our team and their families during financial hardship. Visit #linkinbio for more details or to purchase a gift card, and thank you to everyone for helping us through this difficult time.”
With Jaleo at Disney Springs now closed due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, starting today, you can purchase a gift card for Jaleo or any ThinkFoodGroup managed restaurant — America Eats Tavern, Beefsteak (Washington DC locations) China Chilcano, Jaleo (Washington DC; Bethesda, MD; Crystal City, VA; Orlando, FL), Oyamel, Mercado Little Spain, Zaytinya, barmini and minibar by José Andrés at a 20% off discount, and all money will go directly towards its employees. Half of which will go towards extending pay and benefits beyond the two-week closure, which is incredible foresight given that many analysts are hinting at a delayed reopening in light of recent announcements and CDC guidelines.
These online gift cards start at $25. To purchase a gift card, click here.
