How You Can Help the Hospitality Industry in Raleigh/Wake County
March 26, 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, canceled gatherings and a loss of revenue, our locally-owned, small businesses need community support more than ever.
