We’re no strangers to the damage a storm can cause here in Mobile. When Hurricane Michael hit the Florida Panhandle as a Category 4, we knew the outcome would be devastating. Forever a city sympathetic to those affected by forces of nature, Mobile has and continues to reach out to help our neighbors to the east as they struggle to rebuild and regain infrastructure. One Mobile restaurant shut its doors in order to focus on feeding those in need.
The Newk’s location at McGowin Park was closed to the public for a few days after the company was contracted to prepare box lunches for disaster relief workers. Employees worked tirelessly, packaging more than 1,000 boxes per day. Eastbound and down, the meals were loaded up and trucked to Florida to feed the contractors and linemen working the Sunshine State. The branch has now reopened and everything is business as usual.
