‘Great American Takeout’ aims to support restaurants during coronavirus pandemic

It’s Great American Takeout Day!

The restaurant industry, hit hard by mandatory closures of their dining rooms, are trying to keep businesses open by offering takeout and delivery.

Today, a coalition of chains including Noodles & Company, Panera Bread, The Cheesecake Factory and IHOP have declared today, March 24, Great American Takeout day to help support the entire industry.

“Will you commit to eating at least one delivery/takeout meal on 3/24 to help save our nation’s struggling restaurants?” the group said on Twitter. “RT if you’re in! #TheGreatAmericanTakeout.”

Consumers are being asked to post on social media using the hashtag #thegreatamericantakeout to encourage participation.
