Making Communities Better


Tasty Treats in Texas and Tennessee

Envolve purchases lunches for its residents from locally-owned restaurants

EL PASO, MT. VERNON & SAN ANGELO, TX, AND MEMPHIS, TN — The Envolve Resident Lunch Program serves up meals at four properties in Q1.

Envolve LLC, one of the country’s largest multifamily property owners and managers, founded the Envolve Resident Lunch Program back in 2020 as a way to support local restaurants while bringing residents and staff together over a delicious meal. The program is still going strong today, and these highly anticipated luncheons were plentiful during the first quarter of 2023.

“It’s another concrete way for us to demonstrate our company tagline of ‘Making Communities Better Together,’” said Jeff Ezekiel, President. “We are so proud to facilitate good food and memorable experiences for our valued residents and team members.”

The first event of the quarter was in El Paso, TX when Paisano Green was treated to lunch from locally owned Turbo Tacos. Attendees feasted on tacos, aguas frescas, and cookies from Cocina de Mayte—then danced the day away to music deejayed by Great Dance. Jessica Mendoza, Regional Manager, said, “Thank you to everyone who helped make this event possible. It really made our residents smile!”

Mt. Vernon, TX was the second lunch locale. Logan’s Point residents and staff dined on Italian fare from locally owned Milano Pizza, enjoying pizza, pasta, beverages, and catching up with their neighbors. “I'm thrilled to see everyone come together like this,” commented Cynthia Thomas, Community Manager. “It's a great way to build community and support our neighbors.”

Next up was River Place in San Angelo, TX. Hungry event-goers were treated to lunch from locally owned Armenta’s Café. Options included beef, chicken, or cheese enchiladas with lots of different sauces to choose from, along with chips, salsa, rice, beans, and beverages. Amy Sawyer, Community Manager, said, “Our residents really enjoyed the food, but it was even better to be able to see everyone laughing and having fun! This was a wonderful fellowship opportunity.”

Finally, the Envolve Resident Lunch Program made its way to Memphis, TN when residents of The Junction were visited by Stick’Em—a food truck that specializes in skewered meals. Choices included chicken, shrimp, steak, or tofu kabobs with a side of fries, veggies, or rice. “Our residents were so happy. I received hugs, smiles, and many words of appreciation,” said Tara Stipe, Community Manager. “That’s what it’s all about!”
