An in-depth history of the fund that’s been driving everyone wild


Welcome to First Bite, a Nation’s Restaurant News podcast, your daily source of news from NRN hosted by Holly Petre.

Today, we’re examining the history of the Restaurant Revitalization Fund and where it stands today.

Last month, the National Restaurant Association sent a letter to the Small Business Administration, asking them to redistribute $180 million in funds no one knew were still left from the Restaurant Revitalization Fund. This is the latest news in the saga that has become the RRF. For today’s episode of First Bite, we’re taking a look back at the RRF and where it stands now amid this recent news including new updates since we last shared the this with you.

Here’s NRN senior editor Joanna Fantozzi with more.
