TUESDAY, MAY 18th

Pre-Registration Preferred / Walk-Ins Welcome

Where: 1916 – 1924 W Chicago Avenue, Chicago IL 60622

We are closing West Town Bakery & Roots Pizza from 8:30am – 3:30pm to distribute 1,000 Pfizer vaccines for free, regardless of insurance or immigration status. Help us spread the word! 

  • The Fifty/50 Group has mandated that all employees must be fully vaccinated to remain on the schedule by July 15, 2021 and new employees will have a grace-period to receive their vaccine when joining our company. Exemptions or reasonable accomodations may be given for nursing and expectant mothers, religious preferences, and for certain other protected classicifications as defined by the ADA. We provide incentives as well as periods of paid time off for anyone getting a vaccine or feeling the mild after-effects. Having our entire staff vaccinated will make our restaurants safer for all of our employees, our guests, and it is socially responsible for society. On May 18th, 2021 we hosted an event at one of our restaurants where 99% of our un-vaccinated employees, received their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine. By June 8th, 2021 we anticipate having our employees be 100% vaccinated.

The Fifty/50 Restaurant Group

Founded in 2008 by Greg Mohr and Scott Weiner

From our very first restaurant in Wicker Park – to our newest Roots in Printer’s Row, we’ve grown through the values and the belief that neighborhood establishments are essential to keeping our communities vibrant and safe; they are the heart and soul of Chicago. The purchase and development of neighborhood real estate, where we own and operate our establishments, helps foster our deep roots to the communities we serve. 

Throughout the pandemic, the Fifty/50 has dedicated kitchens and capital to feeding vulnerable populations throughout the crisis while also keeping our people employed to the greatest extent possible. Local restaurants lie at the heart of our neighborhoods’ vibrancy and we are proud to have locations as far south as Motor Row and as far north as Lincoln Square with more to come.
