Hoffbrau Receives Prime Service Award From Amarillo Chamber of Commerce
Hoffbrau Steaks Company was honored for their attention and service after a semi-truck slammed into Outback Steakhouse in 2015.
The Amarillo Chamber's Convention and Visitor's Council gives the Prime Service Award to a business or individual who has shown respect to their community by giving back. This year, they honored Hoffbrau, a local restaurant that went above and beyond to help those in need.
In 2015, a semi-truck crashed into Outback Steakhouse on I40 after sliding on some ice. Although nobody inside the restaurant was hurt, employees and customers were out of a job and meal for the night.
The team at Hoffbrau, which is located across the street from Outback, jumped into action. They invited all of the employees, customers, and emergency workers at the scene to their restaurant for a free meal.
The manager at Outback, Dustin Unruh, went to the Amarillo Chamber to share the good deed. Mayor Paul Harpole presented the award to Todd Gray and his team on Friday, January 22, 2016.
