America’s restaurants are in crisis.
The coronavirus poses a significant threat to the future of an industry that employs more than 15 million Americans. That’s why a coalition of restaurants is asking industry peers, partners, publishers, influencers, and—most critically—guests, for help.
On March 24, we’re asking everyone in America to show their support for the restaurant industry and incredible employees by joining #TheGreatAmericanTakeout and eating at least one delivery or pick-up meal.
Participating restaurants include: Panera Bread, Noodles & Company, Veggie Grill, El Torito, Jason’s Deli, The Habit Burger Grill, The Cheesecake Factory, IHOP, Applebee’s, Lemonade, Modern Market, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®, Tocaya Organica, Torchy’s Tacos, Chevys Fresh Mex, Lucille’s Smokehouse Bar-B-Que, Del Taco, Primanti Brothers, Tropical Smoothie Cafe, California Pizza Kitchen, Shari’s Restaurant Group, Beefsteak, Which Wich Superior Sandwiches, ZaLat Pizza, Sharky’s Woodfired Mexican Grill, California Tortilla, Qdoba Mexican Eats, Curry Up Now, Urbane Café, Paris Baguette, and Black Bear Diner.
Here’s how you can help:
- Hype it up. Post to social media encouraging your followers to participate in #thegreatamericantakeout on 3/24 (we’ve included an official graphic for your use, downloadable here).
- Rally the troops. Reach out to your community: friends, investors, vendors, clients, media, and brand ambassadors. Share this one-sheet and encourage them to participate.
- Eat. On 3/24, order takeout or delivery from your favorite restaurant. It’s as simple as that! Don’t forget to post a snap or video of your meal, tagged with #thegreatamericantakeout.
- Repeat. The Great American Takeout is only the beginning. Keep supporting our nation’s restaurants by ordering takeout or delivery as often as you can.
