Bringing Maryland Home to Monarch

May 22, 2020

We hope that everyone is safe and well during these trying times.

Monarch at Waugh Chapel wants to celebrate everything that we love about the Gambrills area and Maryland, from home.

To further our sense of community, we hope that you’ll choose to support local businesses and operations. So, here’s some fun things you can do, while sustaining local, from the comfort of your luxurious apartment home here at Monarch.


“Eating Out,” from Home

Who said eating-in had to be boring? Not us! Order out, support local, and dine in with these great nearby options offering some unique experiences.

Frisco’s Pizza House

Frisco’s limited menu is available for pick-up. They are also offering a Brew-Thru, so make sure you check out their drink menu! Don’t want to wait? Call (443) 292-4075 with an exact time, and your food/drinks will be delivered right to your car!

Ledo Pizza Crofton

Order from your local favorite for pick-up when ready or a pre-scheduled time.

You can also order a Half-Baked Ledo Pizza that you can finish cooking in your oven at Monarch!
