Losing local & independent restaurants would cost so much more than lost jobs and dreams put on hold.
They are there for us at our best; during times of celebration, and at our worst when comfort food is the only cure. They are family traditions, where we fall in love on first dates, the spot we meet old friends, and where we go to get away from it all.
Those who have worked in-industry understand the satisfaction of taking off their apron after a shift of unrelenting tickets- made worthwhile by positive feedback of just one guest, or a particularly friendly table.
By design, COVID-19 restrictions have frozen the human aspect of restaurants that ultimately provide customers with so much more than a hot meal.
We encourage those in the community who are able, to order carry-out often & engage in other support avenues for local restaurants. Leaving a review is free and on top of being helpful for businesses- is a fantastic way to make someone's day.
