Since Governor Greg Abbott authorized restaurants to sell bulk retail product from distributors to the public, some restaurants in Central Texas have been selling groceries.
It has been about a month since shelter-in-place orders were announced and many businesses like Ma's Place in Temple had to adapt.
"It's just the fact of getting my product to the customers that don't want to go out and keeping the customers that do come see us happy," VIckie Silva said, owner at Ma's Place.
It hasn't been easy for them, according to Silva since their sales have gone down. She said selling groceries isn't as profitable as their meals, but they're trying their best to serve.
"We're trying to help those that work for me and those out in our community," Silva said. "If I can help them we will."
Fuddruckers in Waco and Killeen have opened up what they call Fuddruckers Marketplace to sell food.
"It just helps the community have that service to where they don't even have to get out of their car," Frank Villarreal Jr. said, the area franchise director. "We hand them a bag of the products they need and they call ahead or drive through the drive thru tent."
They are selling items like meat and veggie patties, fresh bread, sides, and produce.
Several others are also offering similar things.
