No other industry has been hit harder by the coronavirus than restaurants. The impact of the restaurant industry cannot be understated – restaurant sales exceed the agriculture, airline, railroad, ground transportation, and spectator sports industries combined. Yet, restaurants will be one of the slowest industries to bounce back from the effects of this pandemic.
The National Restaurant Association has prepared a “Blueprint for Recovery” that outlines how Congress can improve the industry’s chances for survival. Centered around a $240 billion Restaurant and Foodservice Industry Recovery Fund, this plan would provide dedicated government funding, tax credits, and much more to help restaurants prepare for current and future challenges as they recover.
We support this initiative and encourage you to take action. Please take a few moments and contact your Representative and Senators—tell them that restaurants, employees, and consumers need Congress to act on the “Blueprint for Recovery,” so that your restaurant can survive the long road to recovery.
