The American Rescue Plan is in full swing and restaurant owners across the country are taking advantage of the new loan programs. This week on the Working Lunch podcast, the team from Align Public Strategies sits down with Aaron Frazier, the director of healthcare and tax policy at the National Restaurant Association. He gives a full debrief on the programs, how to access the loans, and how the industry is working to make the programs successful.
The corporate elephant in the room is Georgia. Align Public Strategies talks about the political situation there, and how, even if, our industry leaders should engage in this toxic conversation. And California is up to its old tricks again. The team is watching a piece of legislation being pushed by the labor community that takes direct aim at the quick-service restaurant sector.
The podcast wraps up with the weekly legislative scorecard.
