Peppercorn’s ‘Pumping Out’ Delivery and Take-Out Orders During Statewide Ban

by | Mar 23, 2020 | Entertainment, Dining

WORCESTER- One of Worcester’s most well-known eateries, Peppercorn’s, remains open for curbside pickup and delivery during the statewide ban on dine-in service in restaurants due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Peppercorns owner Tom Oliveri, Jr. shared with that although the restaurant is temporarily operating off a limited menu, a variety of popular menu selections are still available.  Limited menus include Crispy Chicken Fontina, Chicken Parmesan, and several seafood dishes such as Seafood Risotto, Seafood Etna, and Fish & Chips.

According to Oliveri, the statewide ban has affected business tremendously. Oliveri said Peppercorn’s is doing only 25 to 30% of its normal sales.

Oliveri said, “I am concerned with where this is going. Is this going to extend past [April 6]? Will we be open on [April 7]? Being closed longer than three weeks and finding ways to support employees I had to lay off is my biggest concern.”

As a treat to loyal customers during this difficult time, Peppercorn’s is offering a $20 reward card for every $50 take out order or delivery, as well as a $20 bonus card for every $100 gift card purchased online. The rewards will be applicable for dine-in after the statewide ban has been lifted. 

For now, Oliveri will remain positive during this difficult time and he has a message for his customer and other local restaurant owners. 

Oliveri said, “Stay strong. We are all going to get through this. There is a lot of mass panic, but if we all remain calm and stay cool we will get through it.”

Online and phone orders can be made between 12 PM to 7 PM on Sunday, and Tuesday through Thursday and 12 PM to 8 PM on Friday and Saturday.  The restaurant is closed on Monday. 

Peppercorn’s is located at 455 Park Ave. in Worcester.
