To encourage the community to continue supporting local businesses in Brentwood during the COVID-19 pandemic, the city is launching the Open for Takeout initiative.
The city of Brentwood declared a state of emergency March 21, which through an executive order meant closing dining service inside restaurants and bars across the city.
“This new initiative is to help those businesses during these tough times,” City Manager Kirk Bednar said. “What better day to launch this but on March 24, which is being called The Great American Takeout, that urges every American to order at least one delivery or pick-up meal today and continue ordering from restaurants throughout the crisis.”
The first part of this initiative is to survey restaurants and find out which establishments are open, which are closed and which offer takeout, curbside, delivery and drive-through options while practicing social distancing. Every Brentwood restaurant owner is encouraged to take the survey here.
Once a person completes the survey, the information will be placed on this interactive map located on the city’s website.
“This feedback is critical to identifying the needs of our business community and helping to support them in this difficult time,” Brentwood Vice Mayor Ken Travis said..
