Our continued responsibility and care for our community and our team.

As we work through this COVID-19 pandemic together we are following the guidance of our local health officials and government leaders. This has hit us all hard, in many different ways and we truly care for the folks who have suffered with health issues. Many of us in the small business community are struggling daily to navigate what is the best course of action. We are grateful for our guests that choose to go to local restaurants, not just ours but all of the restaurants in our community for carry out, curbside or delivery. We hope you make us a part of that rotation in support of our team trying to pay bills as well. As of today, yes BOGO Tuesday we have closed our dining rooms and pubs, but continue to offer our carry out and delivery service. We are also adding non-contact service for both carry out and delivery to practice social distancing. Things are changing often, and for now here are some ways we can serve you, our guest:

• Catering orders to meet your needs

• Online ordering available at www.nickspizzapub.com as well as through GrubHub and Uber Eats

• Expanding our delivery radius to 10 miles

• Curbside pick up • Non-contact service to your home

• A kids “Make your Nick’s ZA at home” package (free peanuts available upon request)

• Par baked pizzas

• Gift Cards available and appreciated

Our new hours at least until March 30th for carry out and delivery for both restaurants

11:00am – 8:00pm Daily

Our purpose & our values guide us through our business daily, now more than ever. We will be communicating daily with our team, practicing open fiscal books and figuring out ways to share tips, and keep people working for as long as our business can sustain it. Again, we are grateful for our guests and all the ways we support each other in our community. We will adapt to any other changes that come our way and stick together, because together is better!

Sincerely, Nick, Larry and the team at Nick’s Pizza & Pub

An important message from Nick Sarillo and Larry Acton

Our role and responsibility in navigating COVID-19

Our letter to our guests from Nick Sarillo & Larry Acton.

The world is grappling with an issue of enormous scale and human impact, and our hearts go out to all who have been affected by the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19).

At Nick’s Pizza & Pub, we believe it is our role and responsibility during this time to prioritize two things: the health and well-being of our guests and our team while also playing a constructive role in supporting local health officials and government leaders as they work to contain the virus. Through that lens, we will continue to make decisions with vigilance and courage, informed by the latest science-based information and guided by Our Purpose and Values.

We wanted to personally reach out to you and provide an update on the actions that Nick’s Pizza & Pub is taking to help prevent the spread of the virus and support the health and well-being of our  guests, our team (employees) and our communities.

You may be aware that over the last few weeks we have taken a series of precautionary steps in response to this developing public health impact, including increased cleaning and sanitizing procedures for our restaurants.

We appreciate your understanding that, as a guest, you may choose to carry out or delivery instead of dining in, as we navigate through this time together. While we are currently maintaining regular operations in Elgin and Crystal Lake, our restaurants are prepared to modify operations with options that still allow us to serve you your favorite pizza, beverage or other food options. This means that as we navigate this dynamic situation, we are offering our dine in guests the option to adapt the seating experience by limiting seating to improve social distancing.  We encourage the use of our in-house delivery, Grub Hub, Uber Eats, or delivery to your car when you drive up. As a last resort, we will close a restaurant if we feel it is in the best interest of our guests and team, or if we are directed to do so by government authorities. In any such situation, we expect disruption to be temporary.

We want to also thank you for supporting our Nick’s Pizza & Pub team (employees)! We have a long-standing history of caring for our team, recognizing they are the heartbeat of Nick’s Pizza & Pub.

Thank you for being a loyal guest. It is our intent to remain transparent, providing the latest information from Nick’s Pizza & Pub.

Our resilience at Nick’s Pizza & Pub is owed to our unwavering Purpose & Values to create “The Nick’s Experience” – for our guests and team!  “Our dedicated family provides this community an unforgettable place to connect with your family and friends, to have fun and to feel at home!”

We are privileged to serve you and your community and look forward to seeing you soon.
