Health & Safety

Dear Friends,

At Ford's Garage, we care about our guests and team members, and think of all of you as family members. Like you, during these last few weeks, we’ve been focused on doing everything possible to keep our families safe and healthy.

Ford's Garage is committed to maintaining a safe and clean environment for our guests and team members. We are closely monitoring information from local, state and federal authorities, the CDC and World Health Organization, and continue to adhere to their guidance in minimizing the transmission of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Following direction from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, our Ford’s Garage restaurants are closed for dine-in guests. We will reopen our dining rooms when Governor DeSantis lifts his Executive Order. In the meantime, we continue to offer carry out and delivery where available.

Following direction from Michigan Governor Whitmer, our Ford’s Garage restaurant located at 21367 Michigan Avenue in Dearborn will be temporarily closed as of 8 pm on March 16, 2020 with plans to reopen our location on April 14, 2020.

As a result of  Governor Holcomb's Executive Order, our Ford's Garage restaurant located at 13193 Levinson Lane in Noblesville, Indiana will be temporarily closed until further notice as March 20, 2020.

Our location located at 8201 Vineland Avenue in Orlando will be temporarily closed as of 7pm on March 18, 2020.  We plan to reopen when Orlando Vineland Premium Outlets resumes normal business hours.

As a result of Governor DeSantis's Executive Order, our Ford's Garage restaurant located at The Mall at Wellington Green will be closed until further notice as of March 20, 2020.

At this time, our 10 other Ford’s Garage restaurants in Florida continue to serve guests via carry out and delivery.

We take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene in our industry. Frequent hand washing and rigorous sanitation procedures are fundamental practices at Ford's Garage. We are always respectful of our team members’ health, and this is particularly important, now more than ever. If a teammate is not feeling 100% or has any symptoms of illness, we insist they not come to work. We are working on ways to support our teammates to the best of our abilities during this challenging time.

In addition to our normally strict sanitization protocols, we have implemented the following enhancements to further ensure guest and team member safety:

  • Increased deployment of antibacterial hand sanitizer stations
  • Increased sanitation of door handles, tables, seats, menus, check presenters and other surfaces using EPA-approved disinfectants
  • Assigning a dedicated server assistant at each restaurant who is solely focused on cleaning and sanitizing all tables, chairs, condiments and touch points before each table is seated
  • Additional nightly cleaning and disinfecting of our restrooms and frequent touch points

We are here to serve you with carry-out orders or delivery through Uber Eats or Door Dash. We are operating with a limited menu due to our decreased operations, thank you for your patience and support.

We remain committed to following the recommendations of public health agencies, and we will further adjust our operating protocols as appropriate as conditions change. We will continue to operate in a manner that balances the safety of our guests and team members with our commitment to serving our local communities.

Thank you for your continued patronage.

Sincerely,

The Ford's Garage Team
