This week, mayors from across the United States sat down with the restaurant industry to discuss ways in which they and their cities can help restaurants survive the pandemic and its aftermath. Sean Kennedy, the National Restaurant Association’s executive vice president for public affairs, oversaw that meeting. Kennedy stopped by the Working Lunch podcast to tell the Align Public Strategies team what happened, what we learned, and how we can keep the conversation going.
Also, as states and cities face unprecedented budget deficits as a result of the pandemic, they will be looking for revenue anywhere they can find it. The Working Lunch team sat down with tax experts from Multistate to understand what may be coming in 2021 and how restaurant operators should prepare.
The podcast wraps up with the weekly legislative scorecard.
