Cook County Chamber of Commerce seeking advice on restaurant assistance

By Jim Boyd, Executive Director of The Cook County Chamber of Commerce - October 13, 2020

The Cook County CARES Business Assistance Team (Mary Somnis of the EDA, Pat Campanaro of SBDC and Jim Boyd of The Chamber) has more than $100,000 in additional CARES Act funding that must be spent quickly. The team’s intent is to focus on the critically important business sector that is most vulnerable to pandemic-induced failure: restaurants and other food-serving businesses,  from the most temporary, mobile pop-up food stand to the formal resort dining room.

To focus spending and ensure maximum bang for the buck, the team needs help identifying restaurants’ most urgent needs. If you are a restaurant owner or manager, please answer the two-question survey the team has devised. The survey can be found here and will remain open only until Wednesday, Oct. 14, at 6 p.m.:
