Coronavirus Impacting Restaurants
SOUTH BEND, Ind.-- Restaurants and bars close across Michiana to dine-in guests to try and curb the spread of the coronavirus.
However, carry-out and delivery are still options and are in need of your business to keep their doors open.
Sounding off for restaurants and small businesses is the CEO of Quality Dining, Dan Fitzpatrick, who says while these are trying times, that does not mean we cannot support one another.
Through the closings, aside from closed doors many jobs have come to an end for the time being.
Waiters, waitresses, and bartenders who are used to working 40+ hours a week in the service industry are now playing the waiting game.
Until the spaces open back up to dine-in guests, many workers are struggling and wondering how they will be paying this month's rent on top of any other bills they have.
Standing up for his employees and those fellow food industry folks, Fitzpatrick hopes to share the message that these restaurants and businesses are still open and in need of your support.
Small changes, such as deciding to order carry out, can not only bring some light to your life by helping to get you out of the house, but can also help keep the businesses you typically visit, open for the next time you are craving your favorite meal.
