To Our Guests,

At Century Grand & UnderTow, the safety, health, and wellness of our guests and our employees are always our number one priority. Therefore, we have made the very difficult decision to temporarily close both our businesses beginning today, March 17th, and remain closed until further notice.

Although Arizona still ranks low with areas of a heightened risk of the transmission of COVID-19 per the Arizona Department of Health Services, as of this morning, the AZDHS recommended that all restaurants and bars discourage dine-in traffic. This decision was made to do our part to prevent community spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We appreciate your patience, understanding and continued support of our businesses. We will continue monitoring the information provided to us by WHO, the CDC, and AZDHS, and plan to re-open as soon as it is safe to do so. 

Our team members are vital to our success and we are working on what we can do to support them, such as allocating resources, providing access to our wholesale vendors for large quantity grocery purchases, and continuing to pay for their health benefits if they choose to stay employed by us. 

As one of our business brand pillars, we are committed to bring people together and experience world-class hospitality.  We look forward to the other side of this difficult situation when we can all invite you back into our home.

Warmest regards,

Rich Furnari, Jason Asher & Jeff Holland 
Owners of Barter & Shake Creative Hospitality
