Many restaurants across the country are shutting their doors again to keep communities safe, closing entirely or returning to takeout and delivery-only operations. Some may think that if we’re partially open, then we’re doing just fine. But that’s not true. Not even close.
We’re grateful for the support of our customers. But the truth is that takeout can’t sustain independent restaurants. We need industry-specific relief from Congress to rehire our staff and keep our doors open for the long term. We need the RESTAURANTS Act — and we need it soon.
We appreciate your ongoing support and would like to ask that you share your commitment to the RESTAURANTS Act with your customers. If you own or work at a restaurant, or know someone who does, please download and print our new IRC flyer and include it in your takeout orders. Here’s the flyer in color and here it is in black and white.
Now is the time to spread the word and gather more cosponsors for the RESTAURANTS Act. Our industry has never faced such uncertainty — but we know one thing is for sure: our national movement to save restaurants has never been stronger.
