“We had just come off a great run as far as revenue and creating a buzz for our restaurant. We had this atmosphere of excitement and then on March 13, everything in Chicago shut down. We saw this abrupt darkness happen in the industry and in our restaurant, and we had to transition to find a way to create new orders.”

— Terri Evans, Owner, Windy City Ribs, Chicago

“The biggest challenge was just knowing if we were going to survive or not. We are located in Times Square, which was probably one of the hardest-hit neighborhoods in the nation. Being the General Manager, I watched our team go from being very large to becoming very small quickly.”
