FRIDAY FISH FRY MENU PRICE INCREASES

Starting on 2 April 2021, prices for menu items will increase. This is due to price increases for ingredients used in our menu items such as chicken wings, beef, and pork which rose last year between 6.3% to 9.4%. Also, with the lifting of restrictions for restaurants, they are all ordering food as well which is causing prices to fluctuate based on availability. 

Then there are the diesel fuel prices which rose 40 cents a gallon over last month per AAA. These increased prices at the pump means it costs more to transport the load which translates to higher prices at the store. With these rising prices, it could affect where the truckers go to get a better dollar for their freight. And the rise will continue as the country (and restaurants) open up.

Gov. Ducey lifts mask mandates, reopens bars across Arizona

25 Mar 2021- Declaring the COVID-19 pandemic under control and the need for restrictions over in Arizona, Gov. Doug Ducey is abolishing all the limits that still remain on businesses and public gatherings. 

In a new executive order Thursday, Ducey dissolved all the limits he had previously imposed on how businesses need to operate. That eliminates any remaining requirements to limit the number of customers to ensure social distancing and to require that staff and patrons wear masks.

Instead, everything that used to be a mandate is now simply a “recommendation.” That means business can — but are not required — to have their own mask mandates and to refuse service to anyone who does not comply.
