Max's Group, Inc. is shutting its doors for now.
The company composed of Max's Restaurant, Yellow Cab, Pancake House, and Krispy Kreme, among others, is temporarily halting its operations—including food deliveries.
The temporary shutdown started on March 26, the same day Max's announced it on Facebook.
The company explained its decision as a way to keep people in their homes following the Luzon-wide enhanced community quarantine.
Its FB post read (published as is): "We're doing our part to flatten the curve and protect the safety of everyone whose lives we touch: our guests, our team members, our partners, our families.
"Effective 8 a.m. of Thursday, March 26th, all Max's Group stores across the Philippines will temporarily pause operations until further notice."
They also urged Pinoys to fight the pandemic as one when it said, "Together, let's beat the biggest challenge this generation has ever faced.
"We look forward to serving you again soon.
"Stay safe. Stay inside."
Max's Group, Inc. is also the parent company of other homegrown restaurants, namely Dencio's, Teriyaki Boy, Kabisera, Sizzlin' Steak, Maple, Le Coeur de France, Jamba Juice, and Singkit.
