The founder of Shake Shack, Danny Meyer, said his Union Square Hospitality Group will require indoor diners and drinkers at its restaurants to show that they’ve been vaccinated against COVID-19.

The Union Square Hospitality Group is a fancy Shmancy restaurant for upscale dining.

From the Union Square Hospitality Group’s website:

Union Square Hospitality Group has created some of New York’s most beloved restaurants, cafes, and bars, which offer outstanding food delivered with our signature warmth and hospitality. 

Founded by CEO Danny Meyer with the opening of Union Square Cafe in 1985, the company now extends beyond the walls of its eateries. In addition to creating Shake Shack, USHG offers operational consulting, runs a multifaceted catering and events business, Union Square Events, and a growth fund, Enlightened Hospitality Investments (EHI). 

With operations in New York, Washington, D.C., and beyond, USHG has long supported its communities through hunger relief and civic organizations. USHG holds 28 James Beard Awards and numerous accolades for its distinctive style of hospitality.

Union Square Hospitality Group Employees will also have to get the vaccine, Meyer said, although he didn’t say whether they would be fired or be forced to wear masks.

However, the policy will not be extended to Shake Shack restaurant (at this time), a hamburger fast-food restaurant that has a number of locations in the northeastern United States.

er of Shake Shack, Danny Meyer, said his Union Square Hospitality Group will require indoor diners and drinkers at its restaurants to show that they’ve been vaccinated against COVID-19.

The mandatory Covid Vaccine policy will be implemented at the Union Square Hospitality Group, which oversees Gramercy Tavern, Manhatta, and Union Square Cafe. The group operates Anchovy Social in Washington, as well.

Danny Meyer made the announcement about his restaurant’s mandatory vaccine policy on CNBC, saying the vaccine requirement is “the most logical thing I’ve ever seen.”

“I’m not a scientist, but I know how to read data and what I see is that this is a crisis of people who have not been vaccinated, and I feel strong responsibility, on our part as business leaders, to take care of our team and our guests, and that’s what we’re doing.”

Danny Meyer Will Lose Employees

Danny Meyer, who is the chairman of Shake Shack’s board, added: “We’re going to give our employees 45 days to make the choice and hopefully this will be the incentive that really makes them say, ‘You know what, now I’m going to do it.’”


Regarding Shake Shack’s policy, Meyer told CNBC that the fast-casual burger chain “will make the appropriate decision for them at the appropriate time.”

Several New York City government officials applauded Meyer’s announcement on July 29.

Of course New York City government officials applauded Meyer’s announcement on mandatory vaccines for customers and staff; they’re hoping other businesses will follow.

“BIG: Restauranteur and NYCEDC Chair Danny Meyer just announced a vaccine mandate for staff and customers at his restaurants. A bold move supported and encouraged by [Mayor de Blasio], with the full backing of the NYC government. This is the path forward,” Bill Neidhardt, Mayor Bill de Blasio’s press secretary, wrote on Twitter.

Mandatory Vaccine passports have been routinely criticized by Republican officials as well as civil liberties groups for creating a two-tiered, caste-based society. Vaccinated people would essentially have rights that unvaccinated people don’t under such a system, critics have argued.

This is mass segregation – I’m hoping you can see that.

Why the segregation? Segregation creates hatred between people, which is what the government has always done. First it was racism and now the covid scare to force vaccinations (genocide) and segregate people through chaos.

Some Republican-led states have moved to ban vaccine passports in government buildings. Florida passed a bill into law earlier this year that prohibits all businesses from using the systems.

The CDC Is Calling The Shots

Earlier this week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reversed its mask policy and recommended that vaccinated and unvaccinated people wear masks in high-transmission areas.

The CDC has also made mandatory vaccinations legal for businesses to decide for themselves if they should be enforced.

Several large businesses and various federal government agencies followed suit and reimposed masking mandates after the CDC’s announcement. The mayor of Kansas City, Missouri, meanwhile, implemented a citywide masking order a day after the agency’s policy update.

The Epoch Times has contacted Union Square Hospitality Group for additional comment, including how restaurants will verify whether a customer is vaccinated.

COVID-19 is the illness caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus.

People ask how they can fight back against the communist agenda that is trying to control the world. For starters, I would suggest not eating at Shake Shack or any restaurant owned by these puppets. I wouldn’t give any money to any organization pushing the government agenda or jab.

But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
