Like many communities across the country, the city of Southlake is now in the process of reopening after a months-long shutdown to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. To help maintain recommended guidelines and best practices—we’re asking business owners, residents and visitors to work with us to implement new health and safety measures in our businesses.
We’re asking business owners to sign our Southlake Safe Pledge, a voluntary, opt-in agreement that demonstrates their commitment to protecting our community by following recommended health and safety guidelines. Read more about these guidelines here.
We will provide every business that signs the pledge with a Southlake Safe Pledge kit that includes PPE essentials like face masks, a digital thermometer, hand sanitizer, and a Southlake Safe decal to display on their storefront. All businesses that commit to the pledge will be included in our Southlake Safe business directory, along with a recurring spotlight feature that highlights various Southlake Safe businesses.
Southlake Safe isn’t just about businesses. As we all return to our favorite shops and restaurants, we can work together to protect the most vulnerable among us by simply following the standards implemented by each business. We know—practicing social distancing and following state and local public health orders is sometimes easier said than done, but we want everyone to be able to safely enjoy our community!
We love Southlake fiercely, and we know you do, too. The more we work together, the faster COVID-19 will become a distant memory and things will fully return to normal. Thanks for keeping Southlake Safe.
Partnering with Southlake Safe shows your customers that their health and safety is your highest priority. We’ll be spreading the word through a regional paid media campaign that features the extra measures Southlake Safe partners are taking to create a safe, clean experience for patrons.
In 1946, Louise Duffney opened a corner Gin Mill at Sheridan Drive and Millersport Highway in Amherst, New York, just north of Buffalo.
It was in 1969 that the local tavern known simply as Duff’s served up their first batch of chicken wings. Selling nearly 20 pounds of wings a week, Duff’s began to create a name for itself and a reputation for having the best wings in Buffalo. It was around 1985 that it was established that Duff’s wings were indeed famous, and the name became official. Duff’s Famous Wings in Amherst, New York still operates in the same original location.
Duff’s Famous Wings restaurants put the same tradition into making every batch of authentic Buffalo wings; the same tradition that was used when Louise introduced the wings in 1969.
