Fall 2020 has officially arrived, and although summer 2020 was not the traditional warm, wonderful time of leisure we’ve grown to appreciate, a new season is on the horizon. New Yorkers are resilient; there is hope.
Among businesses, those most impacted by far were our restaurants. From outdoor dining challenges to the desirable return to serving patrons inside, the realities are all too real. Unfortunately, the future of a large number of our beloved Queens restaurants hangs in the balance.
The Queens Chamber continues to provide significant resources and information to help you navigate through the myriad number of rules and regulations as you seek to rebuild and reopen your business.
Our webinars offer tremendous value and insight into topics to better equip you to handle the changes in business during these times.
My advice, as we blaze a trail forward is to remain flexible, be open to trying new and creative ways to doing business. Support those businesses and members of our community who are struggling by offering any assistance possible.
And finally, we don’t grow when things are easy, we grow when we face challenges. The Queens Chamber is here to support your needs. Contact us at queenschamber.org.
Thank you for your heartfelt support. We’re all in this together and together we’re Queens Strong! And be sure to take a look at our video released in mid August.
