Local restaurants all over the country are asking customers to participate in the “Great American Takeout Day,” Tuesday, March 24 to help earn revenue during the coronavirus pandemic.
This is a new campaign created by a coalition of national and regional eateries, including restaurants like Panera Bread, Jason’s Deli, IHOP and more, according to ABC Action News.
Some restaurants are even giving special deals for those who order takeout. “Panera Bread is offering 25 percent off all delivery and rapid pick-up orders using code FIELD4051. It is also offering to include a ‘bakers in training kits’ with every order, which kids can use to decorate rainbow cookies. Qdoba is offering a promotion where customers can enter to win a $100 gift card by following the chain on Instagram and tagging three friends,” according to ABC Action News.
According to WHNT, an estimated seven million people could lose their jobs over the next three months because of the pandemic’s effect on the restaurant industry.
