Atlanta, sales remains our industry’s biggest challenge. We are hopeful that things will continue to progress positively for the remainder of the year.
How have you seen the restaurant landscape change to better serve its guests? I think we see our guests being more thankful and appreciative than ever for the level of service we provide. We’ve always been focused on delivering a great service experience, and our restaurant guest satisfaction scores have never been better. Our teams are focused on creating great experiences, and it seems like most of our guests are more appreciative than ever. You know the old saying, “you don’t know how good it is until it’s gone.” I think a lot of our guests are ready to have someone take care of them for a change. How can visitors best support the restaurant industry when they come to town? Obviously, dining out in local, independent restaurants. All of our restaurants are following our enhanced health and safety guidelines. If you
aren’t yet comfortable dining out please consider ordering takeout or delivery or buying gift cards for family and friends. And if you are looking for a location for a small team meeting when your office space is closed, consider a local restaurant’s private or semi-private space. SPRING 2021
