Chandi Hospitality & Redwood Credit Union Joined Forces with Mountain Mike’s to Feed Community During Kincade Fire
Santa Rosa, CA (RestaurantNews.com) With thousands forced to evacuate their homes due to the Kincade Fire, Mountain Mike’s Pizza, LLC banded together with Santa Rosa-based Chandi Hospitality Group and Redwood Credit Union to provide free meals to those affected. This past weekend, the community was invited to a Santa Rosa Mountain Mike’s to enjoy a warm meal amidst the turmoil. Nearly 300 people, the majority being first responders and evacuees, visited Mountain Mike’s in search of a bit of joy during the chaos. This specific Mountain Mike’s location recently reopened in Santa Rosa after it was permanently closed due to fire damage in the 2017 Tubbs Fire.
“As our community relived a nightmare that was only all too recent, we wanted to do everything in our power to support the families that had been forced from their homes as well as the brave men and women who were going above and beyond to keep us safe,” said Sonu Chandi, Mountain Mike’s Pizza area developer and president of Chandi Hospitality.
Santa Rosa-based Chandi Hospitality, the North Bay’s premier restaurant group, worked closely with the team at Redwood Credit Union to strategize on how to best serve the community during their time of need.
“This great partnership allowed us to support our community with a small gesture: to take a break and have a warm meal on us” said Brett Martinez, Redwood Credit Union President & CEO.
In addition to inviting locals into the restaurant, Mountain Mike’s and Chandi Hospitality donated nearly 100 large pizzas to local fire stations, emergency centers, and evacuation shelters—so food was one less thing they needed to worry about.
