Hospitality Rescue & Recovery

2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

65% of restaurant revenues are down at least 50% from last year. Dining rooms and bars are capacity and time restricted, and owners are limiting their menus to Take-Out/Delivery. Fewer staff is asked to do more for less.

Time to re-think everything. "This is the way we've always done it" won't work anymore.

Hear from a 30-year industry professional on solutions and resources to help sustain your operation and save 585,000 Ohio hospitality jobs.
