Yesterday was the latest installment of our GGRA Restaurants Rising webinar series. State of the Industry: The New Restaurant Media Landscape was a conversation with writers from across the country to learn about how their day to day has shifted, what they are seeing in their cities and how restaurants can consider these findings when developing their plans and programming. You can watch the full recording here.
Next week, we will be taking a break from our regular webinar content, and will return for a new installment on Thursday, August 20th. We hope you can all join us for GGRA Restaurants Rising, Voices of our Industry: National Stories.
In addition to building out our webinar content, our team created posters to hang in restaurants that outline San Francisco’s mask protocol for outdoor dining. As we continue to work to slow the spread of the virus, it is important that we are effectively communicating protocol at our establishments to keep our staff and customers safe and informed. The posters are available for download below.
As we continue to navigate the changes in our industry, we want to continue to provide you and your teams with the tools you need. Linked here is our previous mental health resources email for reference. Please note that we are also planning to hold another webinar in the upcoming weeks around this topic. Stay tuned for details, but, in the meantime, please do not hesitate to reach out with questions or for support.
With local, state, and federal policies impacting restaurants across the country, how is the hospitality industry participating in the process? Join us for a conversation with chefs and restaurateurs from key cities as we discuss the current climate and its impact on our businesses.
Educating the public on San Francisco’s mask protocol for outdoor dining helps to protect both restaurant staff and guests while lessening the spread of COVID19. We encourage you to display the poster in your window and print the postcards to leave at individual tables so guests can scan the QR Code to view the poster while seated. Color and black and white copies are available to download below as both PDF or JPG.
We hope you will continue to join us in sharing your safe-dining photos using the hashtag #ShowUsYourMaskSF in our efforts to educate consumers on the proper protocols. Please also tag @ggrasf, @eatdrinksf and @onlyinsf so that we can reshare.
