In light of recent events, we understand our nation is taking the necessary precautions to prevent COVID-19 from rapidly spreading and keep people safe.

Although lots of businesses have closed down recently, there are still smaller businesses that have no choice but to stay open. Financially, closing down isn't an option for them. As a local business ourselves, we want to showcase other local businesses and their alternative options (i.e. to-go orders, technological solutions) which should help assist with precautions while keeping them financially afloat:

Eggs Up Grill

Each Eggs Up is a locally owned and operated small business.

At participating restaurants*, the local owners of these Eggs Up Grill would like to help out any child (middle school or younger) who who would not be receiving a school meal through the state or their school program. By providing a free meal from our kids' menu from 11am-1pm weekdays, it's just one way we can make sure parents don't have to worry about their children going hungry.

(*McAlister Square-Greenville, Woodruff Rd.--Greenville, Pelham Rd.--Greenville, Greer, Powdersville, Anderson, and Spartanburg.)

Fork and Plough

Starting Monday, March 16, 2020, they will start offering FREE DELIVERY for their guests (limited delivery area) and offer this service through the end of April, or until we all get through this crisis. To make this possible, they do ask for a $20 minimum purchase.

They are also offering refrigerated meals for families. These will also be delivered, and will come with heating instructions.

They are also offering a Be Our Guest certificate worth 10% of delivery orders over $50.00 for once everything is back to normal. Just call the restaurant at 864-232-9091, they will process your order and mail it out for you.
