Local News

DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Recently, Alabama officials lifted the ban on all buffet-style restaurants, allowing them to resume service.

Owner Zackery Whaley said they are doing all they can to keep customers safe.

They have wiped down all surfaces prior to opening back up and have required employees and customers to wear masks.

Zack’s Family Restaurant began with just pick up which brought them many customers. Now, it’s been about 4 weeks since they opened, but Whaley says business has been booming.

Many customers believe Zack’s is keeping them safe but thinks citizens should do the same.

“I mean, they’re taking the proper precautions, you know, but it’s up to the individual to make sure their self is safe,” said Kenneth Whigham, Dothan resident.

Whaley encourages everyone to come out and eat with them because you will be in safe hands, and they will continue to follow CDC guidelines to keep it that way.
