With restaurants among the retail sectors most disadvantaged by the COVID-19 shutdown, Baltimore-based Continental Realty Corporation (CRC) launched its internal “Eat Local” stimulus program to benefit the company’s more than 300 nationwide team members, as well as eateries near its portfolio throughout eight states.
Between now and May 15, CRC team members will be reimbursed for up to $200 in receipts for purchases at restaurants throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast. Team members are encouraged to order delivery to maintain social distancing and to tip their delivery people as well.
“It is important for our team members to practice social distancing but, at the same time, we feel extremely strongly about initiating a program that benefits our loyal and hard-working team members and supports the restaurant sector,” said CRC’s Crystal Frey. “With restaurants reduced to handling carry out and curbside orders, we encourage other companies to follow our lead.”
