BLOG -- May 23,  2020  --  Latest news

HELLO AGAIN --  We have now been open three weeks & still in Phase 1 of Papa's  opening rules. As always it is all about safety, safety, safety. Again we want to thank everyone for being very cooperative & very supportive of each other. That is the way it has always been at Papa Robbs & we expect that attitude to continue now & way beyond this virus.

This is how things stand at this time: Phase 1 will last until mid to late June. Take out only. At that time , if all goes well & depending on the overall breakout situation in our area, we should be able to open up some limited seating with the social distancing requirements in place.

The playground will remain closed - probably through the summer at least. Very difficult to separate kids once they start playing. Besides, all playgrounds are still closed in NC.

Same with the party center - closed till further notice.

NOW -- another reminder about our special shakes. The Creamsicle Shake reminds us of the old Orange Creamsicle bars. Plus we now have both SunDrop & Cheerwine Italian Ice, so come try something new.

TAILGATING: Yes it is allowed, but social distancing is important for non family members. Be creative & yes you can bring your own take out lunch.

Thanks again for your help, patience & understanding.----------------

BLOG --  Opening Report --  May 7, 2020

What's next you may ask? But let's begin with news of our first week of the season. We've been open for less than a week & we are happy to report that things went well; actually better than expected. This of course was because of you.

Everyone was VERY cooperative, with us & each other. Then again you guys are always cooperative & nice. And that's what makes Papa Robbs Papa Robbs. Now, you are already asking:  "What's next"? Simply put - more of the same.

We see & hear the same news as you: about Opening Up. States, counties, cities, towns & some businesses. In our opinion opening too fast, too much & too soon. We simply have most faith in science & medicine. We want to be wide open again for sure, not at the risk to our staff & you - our customer/friends.

SAFETY -- SAFETY -- SAFETY.  Tha't the name of this game. This virus is not going away as soon as some people think - so why take the risk? Besides, ole Papa Robb had a timetable of his  own. Call it Papa's 4 Phases. We just opened so we are going to stick with our plan & we will try to open in baby steps. Our first phase  was due to last about a month & that is still the plan.

We want to thank all of you again for your great good manners. Papa's Grandmother would approve. Keep watching our social media as we try to do 2 or 3 posts a week & will soon begin our texting program for the year. Some surprises are on the way & a few door prizes to boot.

Before we go - check our menu at our web site as we have a few new items & last year's special Brownie Sundae has become a regular item. Another hint: our Papa's Faves shakes are going fast so come get a taste.

We'll talk again soon.
