Mazzio's Corporation was the first restaurant company (1987) in the United States to enroll employees into a payroll deduction plan.
Day of Caring
Each year, corporate staff members work alongside restaurant employees for a day of "manual labor" in providing for the needs of one of many United Way-funded agencies. Typical of the types of projects that Mazzio's devotes itself to each year for the United Way Day of Caring include cleaning, landscaping, painting, fence building, playground renovations and construction of buildings.
In 2007, Mazzio's Corporation was the Oklahoma winner of the National Restaurant Association's Restaurant Neighbor Award, honoring restaurant companies that have gone above and beyond in giving back to their communities.
- Mazzio's Corporation has led the Tulsa restaurant industry in giving to the United Way

Meals on Wheels
Mazzio's has 12 teams of volunteers who have been delivering meals every Tuesday since the late '80s to those in need.
Mazzio's employees volunteer their time to teach Junior Achievement's economic literacy programs at elementary schools in the area. Mazzio's also provides a day of job shadowing to seniors at Tulsa's high schools.
Mazzio's supports many other organizations through product donations.
