Restaurants to Congress: We Need Relief Now!

On March 18, 2020, the National Restaurant Association called on President Trump and congressional leaders to provide immediate relief in the wake of government-mandated operational changes. The large-scale closures and restrictions on gatherings have created an economic hardship that will ripple through every community in this country.

Early economic forecasts reveal the industry will sustain at least a $225 billion loss and be forced to eliminate between 5 to 7 million jobs over the next three-months; however, the White House and others are projecting a potentially longer period for reduced operations. In a letter to the Administration and Congress, the National Restaurant Association outlined several options that can provide relief and aid recovery for the nation's one million restaurants and 15.6 million employees.

Direct relief should include a Department of the Treasury-established $145 billion restaurant and food service industry recovery fund to help cover operations and pay employees; a proposed $35 billion community development block grant for disaster relief for regions and communities especially hard-hit, similar to a program used to help areas following the September 11 attacks; and assistance in allowing businesses to defer mortgage, lease, and loan obligations. Loans and insurance protections should include $100 billion in federally backed business interruption insurance to help sustain businesses and their employees over an anticipated long-term recovery; establishing a new federal loan program to backstop lost revenue to be provided if an employer keeps its workers on payroll and supports sick leave requirements; a $45 billion expansion in affordable federal and conventional loans; and, $130 million in disaster unemployment assistance which will help employees with financial assistance during interrupted employment because of closures or hardships.

"We are revising our business model to provide meals in different ways, takeout, delivery, safety-enhanced dine-in, but the majority of our restaurants do not have this capability today. As the restrictions continue, we are facing economic headwinds Tax programs should include a fix to the Qualified that will lead many restaurants to shut down operaImprovement Property (QIP) technical correction tions, lay off workers, and end service in our comwhich was a drafting error in the 2017 tax bill that munities," said Executive Vice President of Public would help facilities across the country fund Affairs Sean Kennedy.

The times, they are a-changin’. It’s nearly 60 years since Bob Dylan penned the lyrics, but they couldn’t be truer today. As the COVID-19 pandemic has shown, we now live in a challenging and complex world where one day you’re planning a spring family vacation and the next you’re confined to home together in isolation, and where a small, unassuming virus has the power to wreak havoc with the world’s most powerful economies. The more uncertain the world becomes, the more consumers are turning to brands they trust, that are lightening the mood and reminding them that this too shall pass. Based on what I’m seeing, here are the top three packaging design trends that will help to keep any food or beverage product relevant in these changing times:

;+<,6+/+&(= With so much ‘noise’ going on in the world, saying what you mean and meaning what you say will account for as much as 45 percent of your brand’s image. It’s more important than ever to express the attributes of your brand simply, clearly and concisely, using fundamentals of good packaging design. RX Bar caught the trend early on, with its “No BS” messaging and minimal ingredients list on the outer wrapper of its protein bars. Tillamook dairy co-op also focused on modernized simplicity in its recent brand refresh, adding more visual energy to its logomark by skewing it upwards and introducing a lovely “Ti” ligature flair, and updating its tiny ship weathervane  icon. These design elements help to retain consumer confidence by visually conveying the company’s 110-year heritage amid a new, sophisticated look. Both brands are simply and quickly sending

the message: you can trust us when we say we use the best, natural ingredients.

>$"= Research shows you have 10 seconds or less to form a first impression of your brand and it starts with packaging. We’re continuing to see a growing consumer base that craves authenticity and will emotionally connect with brands that tell an honest story in a playful way, helping them forget their worries for a while.

Creates Restaurant Help Hotline in Partnership with Cohn Reznick and Golenbock Eiseman Assor Bell & Peskoe

!"#$%&'( )*+%

As restaurants around the country close or face mandatory shut down as a result of the global coronavirus outbreak, restaurant reservation and rewards platform Seated has launched a hotline for restaurant operators to get advice from a team of industry professionals from CohnReznick, the leading finance and accounting advisor to the hospitality industry, and Golenbock Eisman Assor Bell & Peskoe, the leading law firm to the hospitality industry. “We know from other countries that this crisis will end. So, we are focusing our efforts on helping restaurants survive the shutdown now and prepare to recover when they can re-open. I closed my own restaurant, Mezze Bistro + Bar, and it was heartbreaking,” said Bo Peabody, Co-Founder and Executive Chairman at Seated, and a restaurateur with more than 20 years of experience. “But having access to trusted information from firms like CohnReznick and Golenbock made it much easier, and I want other operators to have that too. What restaurants need right now is sound advice.” Restaurant operators in need of advice can visit seatedhotline.com and submit a question. From there, questions will be directed to Stephanie O’Rourk, Hospitality Partner at CohnReznick, and Andrew Peskoe, Chairman of Golenbock Eiseman Assor Bell & Peskoe, who will be further supported by a team of advisors and attorneys. Seated is further offering a complimentary hour of individualized professional business advice via phone to any of its nearly 1,500 restaurant partners or any restaurant that may wish to become a Seated partner. “As a whole, the hospitality industry is both overwhelmed and anxious as they are attempting to navigate through these uncharted waters” said Stephanie O’Rourk, Hospitality Partner at CohnReznick, LLP. “While they want to concentrate on what is in the best interest of their employees and the survival of their businesses, they also understand that there is financial and operational distress that must be dealt with first in connection with all short- and long-term plans that are made. During this critical time, we are focused on being a trusted advisor for the hospitality community, one that truly understands the industry and can bring all the resources to the table to help stabilize their businesses during this challenging time.” “We have been juggling inquiries from clients since this crisis began, the concerns start with labor and employment, but then run the gamut of real estate, equity finance, reorganization and even intellectual property,” said Andrew Peskoe, Chairman of the Golenbock law firm. “Some of the toughest

decisions had to be made by our clients in just days, or even hours, and we have so much admiration and respect for the careful thought processes we witnessed. Now, the calls are more about strategic and execution challenges, both near term and immediate. We have, for a very long time, been a practical source for trends and best practices in the industry, but I cannot ever remember it being so valuable a resource as it is in this crisis.” “Many restaurants are small businesses owned by families or independent operators, and it can be difficult even on a normal day to survive, let alone in times of unexpected and unprecedented crisis,” said Brice Gumpel, CEO and Co-Founder of Seated. “Our mission has always been focused on helping restaurants, and our hope is that the Seated hotline can make even a small impact to help restaurants persevere. As the situation continues to develop, Seated remains committed to supporting restaurant operators, and we will continue to offer guidance and help wherever needed.” To date, Seated has filled more than 900,000 seats, generated $7 million in tips for wait staff, and $37 million in revenue for restaurants. While the premise of Seated is rooted in in-restaurant dining and filling seats, its core mission is to help restaurants, specifically helping them increase sales and boost revenue. The launch of this effort further reflects this mission and the company will continue to develop support systems for restaurants as new challenges arise.

Now that it's officially, official as Governor Murphy Announces Statewide Stay at Home Order, mandating that restaurants (who already haven’t) “ operate by delivery and takeout only,” questions come up on what restaurants can and should be doing to stay operational and serve their community. First and foremost, restaurant operators and employees should be following very strict safety guidelines for cleanliness, sanitation, food handling and social distancing. The National Restaurant Association has an exhaustive information center as well as as a very specific fact sheet in both English and Spanish with information specific to the restaurant industry. It doesn’t mention food handling gloves, but now is the time to double down on their use. Of the very few complaints and fears I’ve seen surfaced since this all began about restaurants, almost everyone of them mentions a lack of gloves being used by employees. Now that you have instituted the routines and mechanisms around this temporary “new normal” of pick-up and delivery, it’s time to think about how to make it better, safer and especially how it will affect your community and your business. Here are some tips, best practices and suggestions on how you can be more effective, keep safety in mind and serve your neighbors.

County, Community Partners

Launch Pilot Program to Deliver Hot Meals to Vulnerable Families lark County Commission Chairman Marilyn Kirkpatrick and community partners have launched a pilot called Delivering with Dignity to bring high-quality meals directly to the most vulnerable families in the Las Vegas Valley, keeping them and the community safe by reducing the risk of exposure to COVID-19. The Delivering with Dignity service is intended for people struggling with poverty on a daily basis who are most at risk according to U.S. Center for Disease Control guidelines for contracting coronavirus if they leave their homes including the elderly, those with underlying medical conditions and their family members living in the same household. Organizers say potentially tens of thousands of local residents could fall within those guidelines, and they are working with nonprofit organizations in the community to identify and provide service to the entire population in-need in the Las Vegas Valley. Financial donations to Delivering with Dignity are being accepted at moonridgefoundation.org. Inquiries about volunteering for the program or service requests are being directed to the United Way of Southern Nevada at (702) 892-2300. “As we deal with the public health threat posed by coronavirus, it’s imperative that we find creative ways to meet the needs of the most vulnerable residents and families in our community while following the recommendations of health officials,” said Commission Chairman Kirkpatrick. “Thankfully, Las Vegas is a caring and compassionate community. We have some incredible

;<

partners who are working together to deliver meals directly to the homes of elderly and medically-fragile residents in our community who may not be able to get out to grocery stores or food distribution sites, and cannot afford to order takeout from restaurants.” To launch the pilot program, Commissioner Kirkpatrick partnered with the Elaine P. Wynn and Family Foundation; Healthcare Partners Nevada - Intermountain Healthcare; The Moonridge Foundation; Blau and Associates; Honey Salt Restaurant in Rampart Commons and Buddy V’s restaurant at the Venetian; Foster Kinship, a Las Vegas-based nonprofit that supports relatives and close family friends raising children who are unable to live safely with their parents; and Copia, a for-profit technology company that intelligently redistributes highly perishable excess food from businesses and restaurants directly to nonprofits most in need of food. “Delivery With Dignity was created to provide meals to seniors and other vulnerable residents who cannot leave their homes in the middle of this pandemic. We hope to expand the service with support from the community, philanthropists and government grants. Simultaneously, it is also important to us to provide employment to as many of the restaurant workers in the valley who are healthy yet without work,” explained Punam Mathur, Executive Director of the Elaine P. Wynn and Family Foundation.

Chefs at Honey Salt prepared 800 meals to be ‘delivered with dignity’ to the homes of nearly 100 of the most vulnerable families identified by Foster Kinship. Many of the meals delivered on Monday with the help of seven volunteer drivers were taken to households headed by senior citizens raising their grandchildren.

route to drop-off food to vulnerable families closest in proximity. Delivering with Dignity debuts with Copia in Las Vegas. As part of this pilot initiative, Copia reengineered their technology to provide food directly to individual families in need instead of redistributing it to shelters or food pantries that serve larger populations.

“Many of the family members we contacted were in tears when we called them to offer this service to them as part of the pilot,” said Dr. Alison Caliendo, Founder & Executive Director of Foster Kinship. “We are working with many elderly people who have health problems of their own, and they literally are putting their health at risk each time they get in their car to take their children to a food distribution site. These families are very vulnerable on any given day, let alone trying to cope with the challenges presented by coronavirus.”

“Copia is Solving the World’s Dumbest Problem. We believe in a world with so much technology, innovation, and abundance issues like hunger shouldn’t exist. It is not a lack of food that’s the issue, it’s an ineffective distribution of food. Hunger is not a scarcity problem, it’s a logistics problem and Copia is out to solve it. We’ve mastered the matching, routing, and delivery of highly perishable prepared food from restaurants, hospitals, and commercial kitchens to afterschool programs and veterans agencies in 150+ cities. We’ll feed over 4 million people this year with incredible food that would have otherwise gone to waste,” said Komal Ahmad, SF-based, Vegas-native and founder and CEO of Copia. “Now, our engineering and ops team are working around the clock to reengineer our platform to best serve Clark County and our partners with high-quality food delivered with dignity to those most vulnerable in the face of this pandemic.”

“Each family will receive two meals serving a family of four, or a total of eight people. These aren’t your average PB&J or turkey-sandwich type of meals. These are meals prepared by the culinary chefs from Honey Salt’s kitchen. The restaurant is generously providing these meals at a reduced rate with private donations helping to cover the cost of ingredients, production, and distribution,” said Julie Murray, president of The Moonridge Foundation and Co-Founder of Three-Square. “We are grateful to be able to serve the community in any way we can during this difficult time,” said Elizabeth Blau, of Blau and Associates, which operates Honey Salt restaurant and Buddy V’s. “The governor’s closure order allows restaurants to operate on a take-out basis, so our chefs and staff are thrilled to keep our kitchen open and offer their talents for such a critical cause.” Copia’s logistics and food matching technology allows the meals to remain fresh by providing drivers with the most efficient

IV Beverage (IVB) introduces its flagship line of

14-ounce matcha green teas that fuel a longer-lasting focus without the crash or jitters. The teas are 100% all-natural, NGMO project certified, and contain 80 milligrams of natural caffeine from matcha green tea and organic green tea leaves. They are free of gluten, dairy, gums, preservatives, carrageenan and artificial flavors or colors and come in two flavors: Original and Cacao Chai. Both flavors are only 35 calories and lightly sweetened with four grams of organic cane sugar. Each flavor features a unique combination of water and coconut cream as its base, creating a dehydration-fighting one-two punch. IV Beverage worked with the talented design team led by Katie Swick out of Portland, Oregon to create its Earth-inspired brand identity and visuals. “We are proud to offer products that stand for something more. We wanted to build a brand focused on sustainability, and we look forward to pushing that limit as far as possible,” said IV Beverage CEO and co-founder Branden Yob. IV Beverage is a proud member of 1% for the Planet in which 1% of its annual sales are donated to One Tree Planted, a non-profit organization that plants one tree for every dollar earned. IVB donates an additional tree for every order made online and has partnered with EPA SmartWay affiliated freight carriers to help reduce supply-chain related carbon emissions.

About IV Beverage:

IV Beverage was created by a group of friends with a desire for adventure. It was important to not only create a brand identity that reflected a love for the outdoors, but also to establish values with the environment in mind. IVB wants to fuel your journey elsewhere, whether it’s at the office or to the top of a mountain.

Chef ’s Making a Difference At Ghee Dadeland, chef/owner Niven Patel has adapted to a strictly takeout/curbside business model. In addition he has been bringing in, daily, harvested product from his personal farm, Rancho Patel in Homestead. He lays out that day’s bounty and asks folks to take what they want, free of charge if they are in need (waste not!) or drop a couple bucks if they can but no obligation, no judgement.

At Chug’s, his Cuban-American diner in Coconut Grove, Miami, chef/owner Michael Beltran has gone strictly takeout only but in order to keep two hourly employees on the payroll, keep revenue going (even if it’s just a little) and help those in the neighborhood (Chug’s is a real locals’ place) he has turned a section of the diner into a grocery with dry goods, paper products, etc.
