Rodizio Grill Now Selling Liquid Hand Sanitizer In Downtown Chattanooga

Saturday, April 18, 2020

Rodizio Grill in downtown Chattanooga joins the list of local restaurants that are finding creative ways to keep their employees on payroll. While searching for ways to evolve with the current market, Rodizio Downtown has also found a way to help the local community during the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.

Like other restaurants in Chattanooga, Rodizio Grill Downtown has shifted to providing takeout meals only. However, beginning Saturday, the restaurant will also offer bottles of liquid hand sanitizer for purchase and curbside pickup. No food purchase is necessary to buy hand sanitizer. Pricing will vary based on quantities purchased.

For every purchase, Rodizio Downtown will donate 10 percent to local first responders, working closely with the mayor’s office to identify and donate to essential personnel within the community.  

Marcelo Nascimento, general manager of Rodizio Grill in Downtown Chattanooga, said, “In an effort to support our community and our economy, we were able to design, create and package these 3-oz bottles of liquid hand sanitizer using entirely local sourcing. Through this process, we have managed to keep employees working at multiple businesses here in Chattanooga, all while creating a product that can help keep people safe. The most important part for us was meeting three essential needs: provide work for our team by hand filling our bottles daily, give back to the community by donating product, and generate minimal revenue to sustain our business during this economic shutdown.”

Product Details:
3 oz bottle of liquid hand sanitizer, 62% ethanol content. 
$5 + tax per bottle. Volume discounts available through the online store at rodiziodowntown.com
No purchase limits
No food purchase necessary, but appreciated
Available starting Saturday, 11 a.m.-6 p.m., Monday-Saturday

Purchase online at rodiziogrillcha.com or pre-order at info@rodiziogrillcha.com or 777-4999. 
Curbside pickup at Rodizio Grill downtown (439 Broad St.). Call when you arrive, someone will come to your car along 5th Street or Broad Street. Pre-pay online, or pay at curbside with cash or credit card.

Locally sourced — Locally manufactured and USDA-approved sanitizer, locally manufactured pharmaceutical grade bottles with child safety caps, used a locally owned printing company to design and create labels.
