The QSR Automations COVID-19 Restaurant Resources Page
We’re inundated with news about the world, especially how COVID-19 has affected the restaurant industry and the community within it. Since in-house traffic was limited and then curtailed in early-to-mid-March, on-premise dining has plummeted, causing the U.S. restaurant industry to lose around $80 billion and about 8 million employees, from staff to supply chain workers. We’ll see the effects of the novel coronavirus in the industry for years to come; it’s already altered how restaurateurs are handling business. That’s why we put together our COVID-19 resources page to help anyone in the industry to find the best path forward.
The Good News
It might now seem like there is much good news for restaurant owners and operators out there, but don’t give up hope. Many restaurants have continued operations by transitioning to an entirely off-premise model. Some have started to include alcohol as part of their delivery strategy. Other operators have applied some novel approaches to a unique situation going truly outside of the box. Let these stories guide your efforts as we navigate murky waters, which you can find collected on our resources page, as well as here.
More than anything, we all need a little help. With the CARES Act, the federal government has launched opportunities for struggling business and displaced staff to get assistance. Additionally, organizations like the National Restaurant Association and the LEE Initiative are offering aid to workers and businesses in need. Celebrities have come together to donate to these causes or tip workers directly. However it is, there is help out there, and we want to make sure that you can find that in one handy place.
