COVID Claimed Many Restaurants, Others Trying To Survive
In a three-week period last March, U.S. restaurants lost $25 billion in revenue and three million jobs, according to the National Restaurant Association.
In Ohio, restaurant sales dropped a reported $700 million during that same period after Gov. Mike DeWine ordered them closed March 15.
Today on All Sides with Ann Fisher as a part of our weeklong series A Year of COVID, we examine what survived, what didn’t and what to look forward to as the city and state reset.
