Given the current COVID-19 pandemic, all restaurants, including Thai Select restaurants, have been negatively impacted. Restaurants can only serve customers who are taking food home or ordering delivery. Even with takeout and delivery, that may not be enough for restaurants to survive. This is a tough time for everyone, and for restaurants that are part of the Thai Select family, we’ll be launching several COVID-19 Relief Programs to help restaurants during this time. Continue following along to learn how you can help your favorite Thai Select Restaurants during their time of need.
Here are some ways to help your local Thai Select restaurant:
For Thai Select Restaurant Owners (and our fans), continue reading about the Thai Select COVID-19 Relief Programs, and learn how you can participate (or tell your favorite Thai Select Restaurant to join) to receive assistance.
As part of our initiative for Thai Select, we’re working with 66 Thai Select certified restaurants to deliver 50-100 meals for free to the local heroes working in the top 10 areas with the most COVID cases.
Keep checking back to see how many meals we have delivered to date to the local heroes in our #ThaiFood4Heroes campaign.
Instagram LIVE COOKING
We are collaborating with Thai Select chefs and influencers (who live in their state) to host Instagram or Facebook Live cooking segments, in which the influencer and Thai Select chef cook the same dish. The influencer (and fans at home) can try to create the same dish as the chef, however, there is a secret ingredient twist that the chef must use in their dish. If you’re a Thai Select chef and you’re interested, please contact Thai Select on Facebook or Instagram.
See below for the first one featuring The Dining Dolls and Chef June of Otus Thai Cafe.
Since Thai Select is the official “SEAL OF APPROVAL” for authentic Thai cuisine, we want to see what Thai Select Chefs can do while quarantined. To qualify, a Thai Select Restaurant owner or chef must submit a video (1 minute minimum) to the Thai Select Facebook page or the Thai Select USA Private Group of them cooking one of their favorite dishes in their own kitchen. This does not have to be professionally shot (iPhone/Samsung recording is preferred) as we just want to see your innovative way to cook Thai Select quality meals.
For qualified winners, we will purchase $500 worth of gift cards from your restaurant. The gift cards will be used in future social media sweepstakes for your customers to win and use for a later date.
At the epicenter of many neighborhoods and community groups, restaurants are the heart. People eat, converse, and share memories at restaurants, and we need to do what we can to show our support for them during this tough time.
The first 30 restaurants submitting their videos or photo captions with the rules mentioned above are the winners! This is a first-come, first-serve basis. No judging involved.
Keep following Thai Select USA on Facebook and Instagram to find out about our upcoming Live Cooking segments on social media. This will be an opportunity for you to cook alongside some of our Thai Select chefs, and how you can turn your household ingredients into Thai Select quality dish.
