“We’ve heard from so many people that want to support their favorite local restaurants and help them survive these difficult times,” said Kristine Hillmer, President & CEO of the Wisconsin Restaurant Association, noting that the economic impact of COVID-19 to restaurants and their employees is devastating.
“The best way to support restaurants is to order takeout or delivery as much as you can – and enjoy some great food while you’re at it. We also encourage buying gift cards to use when dining rooms open up again” Hillmer advises that you check with the restaurant directly either by phone or check their website to verify their current menu offerings, hours and the best method for getting your food to be sure you have the most up to date information.
