How do I sign up for the E-Club?^ Top I have not received emails or my coupon from the FATZ E-Club. When should I expect them?^ Top
First of all, thank you for joining our FATZ Friends E-Club. There could be a number of reason why you are not receiving our E-Club emails. Some of the most commons ones include:
- You signed up at the restaurant within the last week or two. In this case, your registration is still getting processed. Once processed, we will send you a welcome email.
- Your birthday is more than seven days away. We send our birthday messages seven days before your birth date.
- Our email may have been filtered for spam. Check your junk mail folder for possible spam filtering. To ensure delivery of future e-club emails, try adding firstname.lastname@example.org to your address book.
- You filled out the registration slip a while ago, but we couldn't process it. In this case, we invite you to register for our E-Club online.
- You registered a while ago but under a different name and email address than the one you're using now. If you can provide us with that information, we'll be glad to look into it.
- Check the following settings of your email application (i.e. Outlook) or those within your email provider:
- Filters: - do you have any filters directing incoming emails from email@example.com to go to another folder?
- Forwarding - have you set any forwarding instructions for emails from firstname.lastname@example.org to go to another email address?
- Blocked Address - email@example.com might be on the Blocked Addresses list. To ensure delivery, add firstname.lastname@example.org to the Safe Senders list.

The children in our group are under 16 years of age; can they still help as volunteers?^ Top
There are some positions that younger children may volunteer for
such as hosting and assisting with cleanup. We ask that any
volunteers performing more strenuous tasks (i.e. pouring hot coffee
or carrying heavy dishes of food) be at least 16 years of age.
Can we raise additional funds by holding a small auction or raffle at our breakfast?^ Top
Absolutely! This is your event and it’s a great idea to try to raise additional funds while you have all your supporters gathered in one location. If you plan to do something like this, please be sure to discuss it with the restaurant in advance of the event.
We would like to have a “child’s price” for attendees under a certain age. Can we have tickets with varying prices?^ Top
All marketing communications will reflect a $7 ticket price and children under 6 years of age free. If you charge the $7 price, your group will make $4 profit on each ticket. If you decide to sell some tickets for less than the $7 price, you still owe FATZ $3 per attendee or communicated ticket sold, whichever is greater.
Do our volunteers have to buy tickets? ^ Top
You owe FATZ $3 per attendee or communicated ticket sold, whichever is greater. If you choose not to charge your volunteers to eat at the event, you still owe FATZ $3 for each of their breakfasts.
Are there a minimum and maximum number of tickets to sell?^ Top
The minimum number of tickets to sell is 75. This minimum has been set to make this a worthwhile and profitable event for all involved parties. There is no maximum number of tickets to sell.
What is the time frame for the volunteers?^ Top
We ask that volunteers arrive 45 minutes before the start of the event to meet with the restaurant team and adequately prepare for their respective positions. The breakfast can start at either 7:30 or 8:00 AM and end at 10:00 or 10:30 AM. Once the breakfast has ended, volunteers will be asked to help clean up so that the employees can prepare the restaurant to open for business as usual.
How many volunteers do I need? ^ Top
The number of volunteers you'll need in each position is based on
ticket sales and reviewed with you by the restaurant operator.
How do we pay FATZ their portion of the ticket price?^ Top
Please be sure that the contact for your group arrives the day of the event prepared to pay by check that day. Upon completion of the breakfast you will be asked to write a check for $3 per attendee or communicated ticket sold, whichever is greater, and give it to the restaurant operator before you leave.
Who is eligible for a fundraiser?^ Top
Fundraising is open to individuals and all non-profit groups and organizations.
What food and beverages are included for the price of a ticket?^ Top
Each ticket entitles the bearer to three pancakes, sausage links, fruit cup and a non-alcoholic beverage (coffee, tea, soda – free refills; milk, orange juice, hot tea – one glass).
Does FATZ allow walk-ins or must all tickets be pre-sold?^ Top
It is important for the restaurant to have an estimate of how many attendees are expected so that we can staff and prepare food appropriately. That is why we ask the group contact to call the restaurant two days prior to the event to give an estimated head count. However, if a few people show up at the door without previously-purchased tickets, we will do our best to accommodate them.
Would FATZ be interested in sponsoring my event?^ Top
Ask to speak to an Operating Partner at your local Fatz
