Reply From Yard House

Having read in the press that a co-owner of the Yard House restaurant had donated to Yes on Prop 8, I contacted the establishment, preparing a boycott.

This is their reply:

Please allow me to begin by thanking you for taking the time to contact us regarding your concerns. Unfortunately, what you have read in the press has been somewhat misrepresented. The donation to Yes on Proposition 8 was not made by Mr. Jocson, but as a private donation by a family member. Yard House Restaurants remains neutral on political issues leaving it up to each individual the right to voice their opinion through the election and voting process.

In addition, Yard House employs more than 3,000 people of all political, racial and sexual persuasions. We are–and remain–an equal opportunity employer. In addition, we also hope that our team members feel comfortable enough to express their opinions without others interpreting such opinions as those of Yard House. Simply put, these are the opinions of individuals who wish to exercise their freedom of expression.

Again, we appreciate you taking the time to share your comments and hope you have a better understanding of the situation.
