This Coronavirus Pandemic is hitting small business hard. These owners had dreams of success while saving their life's savings or taking business loans out to live their dream. The last thing they expected was this!. Myself included everything is on hiatus until this pandemic blows over. Now, I have to venture a guess that Asian food is not exactly favored right now or anything Asian. I might have to diversify into other areas of cuisines like European or even Southern cooking which I know. Oh, New Orleans Creole food, yum or Italian or Middle Eastern food. Yummy.
But getting back, all financial institutions MUST grant Amnesty right now to these businesses. We as customers need to support them with their limited service of drive Ins, and delivery. It's the right thing to do.
Yes, we invaded the grocery stores and supermarkets but how much Mac and Cheese can we make or offer variations of Mac & Cheese or even frozen pizza to baked beans to corn beef hash. I myself wouldn't mind a Chick Fil A or Popeye's Chicken sandwich or a 5 guys hamburger. You have to change it up a bit.
As for those that are the innocent victims of this crisis. Apply for unemployment if you qualify. If the economic Stimulus Package gets passed, there will be some relief. But for the service industry you can try to seek a job on Indeed but things are really difficult right now. Just hang in there. Everyone has been affected.
