Since March, this Covid-19 pandemic has changed the way we do business, and in many ways, the landscape of our country has become unrecognizable. Five months later, and many people are still unemployed, while small companies continue to struggle.

    Fortunately, SpaceGuard Products has been blessed. We have remained in business and, thankfully, have not laid off any employees.

    “And, to show our appreciation, we gifted four 3×5 plexiglass partitions on wheels to our friends at Special Dogs and More in Columbus, Indiana,” said Eddie Murphy, President of SpaceGuard Products. “We did this to help them increase their seating capacity, which has caused business to be turned away from this amazing restaurant.”

    These partitions offer adequate protection for social distancing, and customers are encouraged to draw on them as well with dry-erase markers. Children are in love with the idea!

    “The partitions are helping. We have had more people eat inside this past week than in weeks before. Customers are taking advantage of the dry erase markers and drawing some awesome pictures on the boards, which is pretty cool.”—Special Dogs Facebook Post

    Special Dogs and More opened in October 2017 with the mission to “employ and train those with mental, intellectual, and developmental disabilities.” Their goal is to help those who have been described as unemployable become employable, all while providing the best hotdogs, burgers, tenderloins, and corndogs around. And we believe they are accomplishing their mission!

    Recently, the restaurant had its bi-annual health inspection and was told by the health inspector they are doing everything right. They provide face shields for employees and offer the right amount of seating based on social distancing and the size of their restaurant. Oh, and by the way—the health inspector loved the plexiglass partitions!

    When you’re ready to dine in a restaurant again, keep Special Dogs and More in mind. They will be prepared to serve you with a smile, and don’t forget while you’re there to draw a picture for them on the plexiglass partitions. Also, they offer outside seating and take-out as well.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! Our office and factory are closed on Thursday, November 26th and Friday, November 27th. We will reopen on Monday, November 30, 2020.
