Atmos Energy Celebrates “Take-Out Tuesday” to Support Local Restaurants Across the Nation

DALLAS  Atmos Energy values its strong partnership with local restaurant owners and chefs across the 1,400 communities it serves and will celebrate “Take-Out Tuesday” by offering our 4,800 employees the opportunity to order lunch today from a restaurant of their choice. Whether it’s a bowl of jambalaya in Louisiana, a plate of fried chicken in Kentucky, a basket of rocky mountain oysters in Colorado or a smoked brisket sandwich in Texas, employees across Atmos Energy’s eight state service territory are excited to support their favorite neighborhood eatery.   

Take-Out Tuesday is grassroots initiative that has gained nationwide popularity to rally around a restaurant industry suffering significant losses in revenue and jobs since the pandemic began. In fact, the National Restaurant Association estimates the industry has laid off or furloughed more than 8 million employees and is projected to lose $80 billion in sales by the end of April, so every little bit helps sustain those businesses while the nation addresses this public health emergencyAmong the restaurants that are able to remain openmost have been forced to adjust their operations from a dine-in model to now accommodate take-out and even delivery by partnering with local delivery services and waiving delivery fees to make it even more convenient for hungry customers to enjoy delicious meals brought directly to their front door 

We are inspired by the way our communities have come together, going above and beyond to lift each other up during these uncertain times,” said Kevin Akers, Atmos Energy president and CEO. Restaurants provide an essential service as the nation confronts this challenge, and empowering our employees to celebrate Take-Out Tuesday is yet another way we can do our part. We hope this show of support will drive substantial revenue and further strengthen our existing relationships with local restaurants across the eight states and 1,400 communities we serve.”
