CITY CREATES GUIDE TO SUPPORT LOCAL RESTAURANTS/CAFES
Part of Efforts to Help Businesses During COVID-19 Emergency
San Luis Obispo, CA- The City of San Luis Obispo has created a new resource to help connect local patrons with eateries throughout San Luis Obispo during the COVID-19 emergency. The map-style guide, published by the City, is a useful tool populated by local businesses featuring coffee shops, cafes and restaurants throughout San Luis Obispo that are providing take-out, curbside pick-up or delivery service.
This guide is posted to the City’s COVID-19 webpage (www.slocity.org/covid19) and is being shared throughout the community to encourage community members to support our local businesses during this difficult time. The guide includes information from other business support resources like Downtown SLO’s virtual downtown, but is available to restaurants throughout the City. Currently, over 80 businesses have posted information on the guide.
“We want to do everything we can to support our business community during this time. This is just one of a variety of ways we plan to be there for our businesses as we navigate through this together.” City Manager, Derek Johnson said.
Restaurants who wish to be included on this guide can easily submit information here.
San Luis Obispo has a strong commitment to supporting local businesses. The City has also posted a number of different resources available to businesses from the Federal and State government as well as other organizations to the City’s COVID-19 webpage (www.slocity.org/covid19). This information will continue to be updated as more resources become available. The City remains dedicated to engaging with the business community to both provide support and ultimately move towards economic recovery.
