GPHCC's Dine Latino to boost Hispanic restaurant businesses
Hispanic-owned restaurants can request to be listed as an establishment offering take-out and delivery as part of Dine Latino Takeout Weekend and benefit from the promotion by GPHCC, its network and partners.
Dine Latino Take-Out Weekend will focus on small businesses owned and operated by Hispanic entrepreneurs and excludes larger chain restaurants. There are no fees to participate and restaurants don't have to be members of GPHCC. The goal of the initiative is to help keep Hispanic-owned food establishments afloat during the economic downturn of the coronavirus crisis and beyond.
"Hispanic participation in the restaurant and food industry is high and the impact of the pandemic on this sector could be long-term and widespread, affecting low-income, immigrant and vulnerable communities. We must act now to provide immediate relief to these businesses and the most efficient way of doing this is by helping to boost their revenue", said Jennifer Rodriguez, President & CEO of GPHCC.
Leveraging the combined networks of all the partners and supporters of Latino food enthusiasts across the Delaware Valley (PA/DE/NJ), GPHCC encourages foodies to order take out or delivery from Hispanic-Owned eateries. Foodies can also search the website for new restaurants to try.
"This initiative will help the Hispanic community to keep their businesses relevant and to continue becoming stronger as an economic force in Philadelphia,"
