The Smokehouse Grill’s COVID-19 Response: Flexibility, Takeout Options, and More

The Smokehouse Grill’s COVID-19 Response: Flexibility, Takeout Options, and More

As a global pandemic continues to sweep across the globe, small businesses are looking for ways to continue to provide value for their customers while staying afloat among the uncertainty. Thankfully, many businesses and their community are banding together to support one another during these trying times.

At the Smokehouse Grill, we’ve spent for more than 20 years as a leading Maryland caterer and have been by your side for life’s biggest celebrations. Now, we’ve made some changes to continue to support you through the pandemic, including rescheduling flexibility, a popup market, and carry-out family dinners. Curious to learn more? We’re here to break it down for you.

Event Rescheduling Flexibility

Adjusting Event Dates with Your Maryland Caterer & Other Vendors

As a leading Maryland caterer, we know how valuable it is to our customers to stay flexible to their needs — even if that means postponing their wedding catering, graduation party, or corporate event. We’re more than willing to reschedule your event with us and have been able to reschedule a number of events so far without a problem. If you have an event scheduled with us in the near future, get in touch with us and we’ll be happy to discuss and make the necessary accommodations.

The CDC has recommended the postponement of all weddings in the US until May (at the earliest), which means many people are affected by this time shift.  Here are some tips for handling your other vendors and rescheduling:

  • Be Proactive: Get ahead of your vendors by contacting them about cancellation and postponement now. While you may not be able to reschedule for a Saturday, Friday weddings are a great option if you have the flexibility with your vendors.
  • Calendar Your Cancellation Deadlines: If your wedding is coming up and you’re unsure about whether COVID-19 could impact it, be sure to mark your calendar with the cancellation deadlines for all of your vendors to avoid burning your entire investment.
  • Get CFAR Insurance: If you’re going on a honeymoon or have a destination wedding planned, make sure you get cancel for any reason travel insurance. In uncertain times like these, this is definitely worth the additional cost.

If you’ve been to a grocery store in the recent weeks, you’re familiar with the tense feeling of fellow shoppers and the shortages on your favorite pantry staples. The leading Maryland caterer has decided to offer a popup market in which you can shop fresh ingredients and household staples in an easy, contact-free way.

Our popup market on our website is available for ordering Monday through Wednesday from 9am-3pm. After ordering and payment, you can pick up or have your order delivered Friday or Saturday from 9am to 6pm.

Some of the selections available in our popup market include:

  • Fresh Meats & Seafood: Ribs, Beef, Chicken, Tuna, and More
  • Frozen Vegetables
  • Deli Meats and Sides
  • Fresh Produce Boxes
  • Household/Pandemic Staples: toilet paper, masks, gloves, bleach, and paper towels

In addition to standard items, we also have weekly specials running on popular groceries.  Not only is our popup market a great way to reduce social contact while getting the necessities for your family, but it’s a great way to support small businesses during these difficult times.
