National Restaurant Association Calls On Trump
March 19, 2020
On Wednesday, March 18th the National Restaurant Association called on President Trump and congressional leaders to provide immediate relief to restaurants effected by government mandates. Early economic forecasts reveal the industry will sustain at least $225 billion loss over the next three months.
“We are revising our business model to provide meals in different ways, takeout, delivery, safety-enhanced dine-in, but the majority of our restaurants do not have this capability today. As the restrictions continue, we are facing economic headwinds that will lead many restaurants to shut down operations, lay off workers, and end service in our communities,” said Executive Vice President of Public Affairs Sean Kennedy.
