TAMPA, Fla. -- Armature Works is reopening parts of its operation starting Thursday to allow vendors to implement takeout and delivery orders.
The food hall closed all operations on March 16.
“After four plus weeks of full closure we are very happy to allow our vendors the opportunity to now use their kitchens for both takeout and delivery, with very strict guidelines,” said Chas Bruck, Co-Developer for The Heights District and Armature Works.
“We fully appreciate and understand how much our vendors have needed this opportunity, but we felt it was more important at the time to close in a proactive effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. Further, the last four weeks have allowed us to research and observe best practices to better ensure the safety of our guests, employees and vendors.”
