Restaurant Reopening Guide
The BentoBox guide includes actionable tips and recommendations to help restaurants safety reopen. It features best practices for guest communication, guidance for physical space layout, staff training tips and more. Learn more here.
There are a number of resources and organizations that support and champion restaurants. We compiled a guide with funds, assistance programs, initiatives and state-by-state resources. The National Restaurant Association and Stand for Small have guides too. Also, the Restaurant Employee Relief Fund, The Lee Initiative and Children of Restaurant Employees (CORE) all support the industry.
At BentoBox, we launched Restaurants.love to help diners find local restaurants. We also launched a Pop-up Shop where all proceeds are split between the Relief Opportunities for All Restaurants (ROAR) and the Independent Restaurant Coalition (IRC).
