Plano, TX, USA – October 8, 2020 – Outside of In-Fretta, owner Ram Mehta posted a sign saying that the restaurant will serve a fresh, delicious meal no matter their financial situation. The business lost 80% of its pre-pandemic business but is adamant that the core aim is and remains to be to aid those in need.
Since the pandemic struck in March, In-Fretta Pizza has provided over 400,000 free meals, thousands of free COVID-19 tests, 50,000 PPE kits, and even a free car to people in need through his self-funded charity, EveryoneEatz.
“EveryoneEatz was founded in response to these unprecedented times where members of the community are experiencing hunger, health issues, and even homelessness,” says Mehta. “Covid-19 has been the largest crisis of our generation, and many members of our community can not afford adequate personal protection equipment, needed testing, and even food. Hundreds of thousands of people have been impacted, the economy is falling, and the very essence of our well-being as a community and a society is fading.”
Ram Mehta came to New York from New Delhi, India, as a 15-year-old tourist. After exploring the area, he decided to stay. At first, Ram’s life wasn’t exactly luxurious. He worked 18 hours every day for a job that paid $3 an hour. Because his financial situation wasn’t the best, he became homeless and lived in the New York subways. Finally, after lots of struggling, Ram started turning his life around and eventually started a restaurant called In-Fretta.
Tragically, shortly after the restaurant opened, Ram’s mother passed away. Ram shares that his mother was a charitable woman. In her honor, he promised himself that nobody, no matter what financial situation they were in, would ever go hungry in his restaurant.
“My mom was always involved in charity. She always told me to make sure I was giving back,” Ram shared. “That was deeply ingrained in me already, but when she passed away, I promised her that I’d carry on her legacy of giving back.”
In-Fretta’s food is best described as an authentic New York taste in Texas. Everything is made from scratch using the best and finest ingredients to provide the authentic homestyle flavor their customers love and crave. In-Fretta has two locations, one in Plano and another in Irving. To view their menu or to get directions, visit them online at https://www.in-fretta.com.
