To open or not to open, that is the question. While the experts weigh all their information, we restauranteurs are left waiting for someone to give us the go ahead. The COVID19 shutdown has been devastating for many industries including the restaurant business. Although we are trying to eek it out with TOGO and curbside pick up, the reality is that sit down, table service establishments are dependent on people gathering. Obviously we will not be able to continue to exist on 80-95% decline in sales and hope we can hang in there until things get back to normal. We are taking advantage of the PPP loans which is helping, but this will soon be exhausted. There are other financial option we are pursuing.
We can’t wait to open and hope community confidence will be strong. With all that said, we will plan to reopen for dine-in service as soon as Governors and Mayors says it is safe.
Thank you to everyone who has been supporting us during the shutdown. See you soon!
