The Great American Takeout Initiative
CityMedia.press is pleased to support campaigns similar to this one.
The Great American Takeout Initiative is an example of a coalition of national and regional eateries who launched a new campaign called the Great American Takeout–set for Tuesday, March 24–in a bid to support the struggling restaurant industry, which has been particularly hard-hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are launching a new online delivery service through e-commerce this week with one of our partner papers in New York to help the restaurant industry. New business models are emerging like this one to support the struggling industry.
Many states and cities nationwide have ordered all dine-in restaurant operations closed to help stop the spread of the virus, but posing great economic harm to the restaurant sector, which employs an estimated 15 million workers.
Americans are being asked to post on social media in advance of the event at #thegreatamericantakeout to encourage participation and to continue supporting local restaurants and industry employees by ordering takeout regularly in the future.
We invite publishers and clients who want to offer a similar e-commerce/delivery service in their market let us know.
