We have organized a comprehensive list of COVID-19 resources for restaurants, to ensure that owners and operators have access to helpful information. Since the impact of COVID-19 in the US, the restaurant and food service industry has come to almost a complete standstill. Fast casual brands and locations with a drive-through already set up have pivoted in this environment more easily than dine-in restaurants. Still, many of the dine-in operations are finding success with food deliveries or setting up parking lots for customers to drive-up to pick up food. With widespread testing still not implemented and a vaccine months away, restaurants and other food service brands need to find a new normal for their operations.
These resources will keep you in the loop on what’s happening and available. They are updated regularly and provide a wide range of information that will be helpful as we move through different stages of this crisis.
