CEO Message to Our Valued Guests

Dear Valued Guests,

As part of an international effort to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) we have temporarily closed all 97 Souplantation and Sweet Tomatoes restaurants nationwide.

We are taking the urgent guidelines expressed by health and government officials very seriously, and we feel this temporary closure is the best decision to help keep our guests, team members and their families safe and healthy. We believe it is our social responsibility to assist in flattening the curve, and as soon as we can, we will resume restaurant operations.

Because of the rapidly changing nature of the pandemic, a reopening date will be announced at a later time. We will continue to monitor the progress of the virus, as well as the advice and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and local Health Departments.

At Souplantation and Sweet Tomatoes, it has always been a top priority to provide guests the best possible experience and care. We thank our guests for their support, patience and trust as we navigate these challenging circumstances. Our commitment to our guests and team members remains as dedicated as ever and we look forward to serving you again shortly.

Our team members will be working closely with our Human Resources department to assist with any employment changes as part of the temporary closure. We will continue to provide health benefits for team members during this difficult time and we are looking forward to reopening stronger and better than ever.

Updates on the reopening of Souplantation and Sweet Tomatoes restaurants will be emailed to you, and posted on, as well as social media channels. We realize that we may be missing your birthday during this time, or many of you may have free meal passes expiring before you can enjoy them. Rest assured that we will take great care of you when we reopen.

Best regards,
CEO Signature
John Haywood
Chief Executive Officer
