STATEMENT ON THE EFFECT OF WINTER STORM JUNO ON NYC RESTAURANTS
"The Association is very impressed with the Mayor's Office, Office of Emergency Management, Department of Sanitation, and other offices for their coordination efforts. We were kept up to date on all recent developments so that we could inform restaurants and help them prepare for the worst," said Chris Hickey, Regional Director NYC of the New York State Restaurant Association. "Many restaurants notified customers via email and social media in advance that they would be closed yesterday and today. Their quick response in ensuring the safety of their employees and customers was inspiring. Winter Storm Juno will have an affect on the restaurants in New York City. The economic impact per restaurant for stopping delivery service during prime conditions and a whole day of closing can range anywhere from a loss in revenue of $5,000 to $50,000 for larger restaurants."
