In addition to our normal news coverage, What Now Atlanta is tracking ways Atlanta’s businesses are adapting to the novel coronavirus and the challenges it brings to brick-and-mortars.
The folks at Coast, an “all-in-one workplace” software for restaurants, have launched “Takeout COVID,” an app that maps out local eateries that are still open for to-go and delivery.
Coast has already logged 400+ Atlanta-area restaurants that are still serving including Heirloom Market BBQ, Boccalupo, and Sushi Hayakawa (click here to view the ever-updated map).
“The COVID-19 outbreak is devastating local restaurants and bars who can no longer seat patrons. Many of them have thousands of dollars of inventory sitting in their fridges, cellars, and bars, which is at risk of going to waste,” Warren Wu of Coast App, told What Now Atlanta in an email Thursday.
“By ordering takeout and delivery, you can help support your favorite businesses and their hardworking teams during this challenging time. Many municipalities have even temporarily allowed the takeout and delivery of certain alcoholic beverages. Order food, cocktails, wine, and beer-to-go and keep your local favorites in business!”
