“Sadly, our Sandy Springs location will not open after the loss from COVID-19,” Kinsey said. “We offered our team jobs at our neighboring locations. Our hearts go out to all restaurant owners and operators during this unprecedented time.”

Fork U has a sizable portfolio of restaurants around town—Taqueria Tsunami, Stockyard Burgers & Bones, Silla Del Toro, and Forno Vero—and in March launched a “Restaurant Worker’s Relief Fund” via GoFund me, looking to crowdsource $25,000 to “help support our team members.” In exchange for donations, the company provided a “Support Card to use at any of our Fork U Family concept restaurants.”
