How To Support Restaurants During The Coronavirus Pandemic

The restaurant industry has already been extremely affected by the coronavirus outbreak. Fear of the coronavirus is keeping customers away as restaurants are struggling. At least 28 states have placed restrictions, reducing seating and in California ordering restaurants and bars to close entirely and only allow takeout, delivery, and curbside pickup.

Restaurateurs are revisiting their business models to provide meals in creative ways, but many are facing economic turmoil that will lead several restaurants to shut down operations.

Local restaurants usually operate on small margins. The best way to show your support for your community is to continue to dine out via online ordering. Another great way is to pay it forward with the purchase of gift certificates directly from the restaurant. The choice to invest in a future meal gives restaurant owners something to work with in the interim and when things have settled down, celebrate with your gift certificate!
