Duffy's Sports Grill Announces Re-Opening Plans

Posted Jun 2020

Lake Worth, FL – June 18th, 2020 – Duffy's Sports Grill, Florida's largest, family-owned restaurant group, will begin re-opening restaurants July 1st, with the majority of its footprint open by the end of July. After careful consideration of local mandates and CDC guidance across all Duffy's locations and out of an abundance of caution, Duffy's has taken this time to leave no stone unturned to ensure the safety and quality of service to the standard they are known for as they plan to re-open. The first phase of openings will include locations such as Jupiter West, North Miami Beach, Cape Coral, Superplay and PGA.


"We want to thank all of our employees and loyal customers for their patience, dedication and support during this time. We are very excited to begin reopening locations and cannot wait to welcome everyone back to Duffy's," said Joe Webb, President of Duffy's. "Health-safety and quality of service have always been our top priority and we are coming back better than ever. We can't wait to see you soon!"


Duffy's is known as the leading Sports Bar and Grill throughout Florida. In the wake of the limited sports programming and bar service due to regulations, Duffy’s has turned these circumstances into an opportunity to adapt and enhance the guest experience. New measures include expanded outdoor seating options, streamlined kitchen to table service and a revamped Curbside Takeout and Delivery program to cater to those who prefer to enjoy Duffy’s from the comfort of their home or office.


Duffy's has also taken steps in the development and training of additional health safeguards to ensure the confidence and safety of their team players and guests. These measures include:


  • Daily health screenings of all Team Players 
  • Additional Team Player health and safety training
  • Providing facemasks and gloves for all Team Players 
  • Sanitizing stations at the entrance and throughout the restaurant 
  • Limiting dine-in capacity and expanding outdoor patio seating options
  • Maintaining social distancing practices between parties
  • Single-use and contactless menus
  • Disinfecting high touch surfaces continually
  • Offering contactless curbside pickup for to-go orders
  • Always ensuring compliance with CDC and local mandates


With locations spread over numerous counties that have varying local mandates, Duffy's is investing extra time to ensure each store receives the support needed to open safely and responsibly. 


"Opening responsibly also includes sustainability. We are looking to the future by taking the steps now needed to keep the doors open and our Team Members employed so we can continue to serve our communities the best wings, best burgers and best happy hours!"
