The Re-Opening of Popular Restaurants in East Atlanta
It is an understatement that the year 2020 has presented us all with a different world and how we live in this new world. Many industries have been affected by the COVID 19 pandemic, especially the entertainment and dining industry. Many local & franchised restaurants along with venues have closed their doors with efforts to help stopping the spread of the virus. This forced large and small business owners to think outside the box to keep their business running by offering consumers To-Go, delivery, and curbside services. Businesses such as Taproom Coffee and Sun in My Belly got creative by delivering gallons of coffee to local places and turning their restaurant into local farmers market to keep their employees and business open. Other restaurants opt to close its door entirely to minimize the impact of the virus and keep their employee safe. During its closure time, most restaurants were able to create an action plan to provide a safe environment for its’ employees, customers, and suppliers at time of reopening.
