How You Can Help the Hospitality Industry in Raleigh/Wake County

Oct. 29, 2021
 

In Raleigh/Wake County, the hospitality industry employs more than 67,000 people—chefs, hotel workers, retailers, tour operators, event planners, caterers, museum staff and many, many others—who make a living serving both visitors and local residents at restaurants, coffee shops, hotels, attractions, sporting events and elsewhere.

Because of COVID-19 and a loss of revenue, our locally-owned, small businesses need community support more than ever.

Plan a trip to visit Raleigh area hospitality businesses, and if you're a resident, plan to support businesses as much as you can in your own backyard.
