Marion's Piazza is preparing to reopen its dining rooms again, starting June 1. Here's what to expect.
Marion's Piazza has announced it will begin to open dining rooms one at a time, and hopes to have all locations open for dine-in by July 1.
The popular pizza restaurant converted all its locations to carryout and delivery only back on March 16, due to the coronavirus pandemic and state-mandated closure of restaurant dining rooms. When the dine-in shutdown mandate was lifted on May 21, Marion’s Piazza decided not to reopen its indoor seating right away.
"Marion's Piazza's top priority during this pandemic is the safety and well-being of its customers and employees," read a statement on the official Marion's social media page.
Now, Marion's has a plan, starting with the Shroyer Road location, which will reopen its dining room on June 1.
As each restaurant reopens its indoor seating, reservations will be required and available on a same-day basis only, starting at 10 AM. Dine-in hours will be limited initially to 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
In addition, expect much less available seating, as dining rooms will be reconfigured to allow for social distancing. Plexiglass shields will also be installed at each cash register.
Diners will be encouraged to wear masks prior to eating, but masks will not be mandatory. However, all employees will be wearing masks.
Marion's is also having special equipment installed on their air-conditioning units to reduce bacteria and viruses from recirculated air.
Curbside carryout and DoorDash delivery will remain available seven days a week for lunch and dinner.
Family-owned since 1965, Marion’s Piazza operates nine locations in the Greater Dayton area, including Beavercreek, Centerville, Dayton, Englewood, Kettering, Oakwood, Mason, Miamisburg, and Troy.
