    About Us

    Hobee’s has satisfied thousands of healthy appetites with fresh, distinctive cuisine since 1974, when the first restaurant opened in Mountain View, California. Today, Hobee’s is an award-winning phenomenon boasting six popular locations throughout northern California. Hobee’s customers enjoy fast and friendly service in a casual, homey atmosphere. We offer generous portions at modest prices and are conveniently open for breakfast, lunch and dinner (except at Mountain View, Montague and Redwood Shores, where we serve breakfast and lunch exclusively). The restaurants cater to a delightfully diverse clientele: families, students, the who’s who of Silicon Valley high-tech, seniors and celebrities all feel warmly welcome at Hobee’s. And we back up our motto that “kids are cool at Hobee’s” by providing extras – like a special children’s menu and custom-designed coloring sheets – to our tiniest patrons.

    We’re proud of our mission:

    “We are a motivated team of health-conscious, community-minded individuals. We are committed to the highest standards of food quality and customer service. We care about our guests’ experience and our crew’s development. At Hobee’s, we are dedicated to taking the extra step at every level to be the best we can be!”

  • New Law for Employers New Law for Employers

    FAMILIES FIRST CORONAVIRUS RESPONSE ACT (FFCRA)

    The full text of the FFCRA can be found here.

    The FFCRA is a new federal law that requires employers with fewer than 500 employees to provide two new paid leave benefits for eligible employees affected by the COVID-19 virus in 2020. This applies only to those employees (not already laid off) who are home sick. The leave requirements generally provide paid sick time or paid leave under certain circumstances (as described more fully in the notice poster, link #4, below). The FFCRA also provides tax credits that may help employers provide the paid leave benefits.

    The FFCRA helps the U.S. combat workplace effects of COVID-19 by reimbursing American private employers that have fewer than 500 employees with tax credits for the cost of providing employees with paid leave, taken for specified reasons related to COVID-19. The law enables employers to keep workers (who are home sick with COVID-19 related illness and therefore unable to work, even remotely) on their payrolls, while at the same time ensuring that workers are not forced to choose between their paychecks and the public health measures needed to combat the virus. The Departmnt's Wage and Hour Division administers the paid leave portions of the FFCRA.

    If an employer has fewer than 50 employees and providing the paid leave benefits would jeopardize the viability of the business as a going concern, the small business exemption may apply. Employers who believe they qualify for the exemption should document why the business meets the exemption criteria unless and until the Department of Labor issues additional guidance on claiming the exemption.

    Effective April 1, 2020, employers are required to properly notify their employees of the new FFCRA leave benefits and implement the requirements.

    Below are links to important resources that contain compliant employee notices, guidance, and recommendations for employers subject to the FFCRA.
