ROCHESTER — City Manager Blaine Cox and Director of Economic Development Michael Scala are pleased to announce the city is launching a new campaign to support local restaurants while they are only able to provide takeout and delivery services.
While everyone is doing their part to promote social distancing and following the latest guidelines around the novel coronavirus health crisis, the City of Rochester would like to support local restaurants that are still open and serving their delicious food via delivery or takeout.
Each day, City of Rochester employees will get lunch or dinner from a different restaurant in Rochester as part of the city’s new “Good To Go” campaign.
Many of Rochester’s restaurants are still open and their employees are working hard to serve up fantastic meals.
“We want to encourage everyone to order takeout or delivery from their favorite Rochester restaurants to help support our business community during these difficult times,” said City Manager Blaine Cox. “The simple act of ordering a meal to go can make a huge difference to restaurant owners in the city while they are unable to have sit-in dining.”
The City of Rochester encourages everyone to order a meal to pick up or be delivered from your favorite restaurant today and share the hashtag #GoodToGoRochesterNH with a picture of you and your takeout containers.
So, let’s show some support for our local businesses, while remembering to continue to practice social distancing, and please, no group photos!
Here are some other ways you can support local restaurants and restaurant workers:
- Don’t forget to tip your delivery drivers! Some meal delivery services like UberEats have suspended delivery fees for independent restaurants. But you should still always tip the driver
- Order your food online or over the phone to limit face-to-face interactions
- Purchase gift cards for your favorite restaurant online to use now or at a later time
