A recent survey by the National Restaurant Association shows consumer sentiment around dining out is taking a dive due to the delta variant of COVID-19. Six in 10 adults have changed their restaurant use due to the rise in the delta variant, and 19% of adults have completely stopped going out to restaurants. Now more than ever, restaurants like mine need the federal government to step up and fully fund the restaurant revitalization fund — a crucial lifeline for hospitality businesses.

We applaud our own representative, Congresswoman Ashley Hinson, for co-sponsoring the Entrée Act and hope that we will soon have access to the full support of the federal government.
