Tokyo Tokyo staff to get free COVID shots
“We want to reassure our customers on the safety of dining at Tokyo Tokyo by ensuring that all our employees are vaccinated which is provided for by the company free of charge,” Tokyo Tokyo vice president for operations Jennifer Ravela said. Tokyo Tokyo was one of the first restaurants that quickly reacted to the COVID situation and quarantine in early 2020. When its outlets were closed from March 15 to April 2020, the management took the opportunity to train the employees on how to stay safe and take care of themselves amid the pandemic. Additional measures were put in place to ensure the safety of customers in-store in preparation for the reopening of the stores. During the time of strict community quarantine, Tokyo Tokyo donated over 30,000 meals to frontliners in different hospitals and checkpoints nationwide in recognition of their hard work and bravery. “Our meals were just a small way of giving back and supporting their efforts. We were hoping that even just for a day, our delicious bento meals can give them a little more motivation to continue the good that they are doing,” Ravela said. When Tokyo Tokyo reopened, it ensured that its team members were trained on COVID best practices and sanitation in-store so everyone that visits the branches is safe.
