During this challenging time, our hearts go out to everyone affected personally and professionally by COVID-19. We all must do our part to take care of each other, and for all of us at Rewards Network, that centers on the restaurant community.
For 36 years, we’ve proudly been the largest network of small independent restaurants across the U.S., and we are proud to advocate for this vital community. Based on potential restaurant closures from the COVID-19 virus, the industry could lose 25-30% of its sales and put as many as 7 million people out of work. As thinly capitalized businesses, many restaurants will be forced to permanently shut their doors unless we move with great speed to protect them.
Therefore, until the end of April, Rewards Network will provide our Marketing Services product to restaurants in our network at no cost to them. Zero.
For restaurants interested in finding out more about our free Marketing Services offer, visit this link or call (800) 766-3463. And please help us spread the word throughout the industry via social media.
Finally, each of us as individuals play a role. Call your favorite restaurants and order takeout or delivery as often as you can. Or buy their gift cards to provide them the capital they need now and the night out you could use later. You can enjoy foods you love and support the community you live in.
