Famous Mike’s updates the ‘Giving Board’

Mike Seekins says the new parameters are working better, and business is doing well.

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT)— Famous Mike’s is back to business as usual, after seeing a slump for several days last week.

According to owner Mike Seekins, his business was uncharacteristically quiet for three days in a row.

He says ‘The Giving Board,’ which offers a free meal to people in need, was so popular paying customers felt like they couldn’t get in for a meal.

The popularity of the program was overloading the restaurant, so they’ve limited the times and amount of meals given out each day.

Seekins says the new parameters are working better, and business is doing well.

“We’ve been extremely busy, which just shows what a great town Macon is. The people in this town, they saw that, they came to support me and I guarantee you probably half of them bought a meal also, or two, or three, or four, or five,” said Seekins.

You can call the restaurant at 478-200-1122 to donate a meal. Or you can donate a meal while eating at the restaurant.

‘The Giving Board’ hours are from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. until 3 p.m. There are 20 meals available for each time slot.
