A Look at the 2020 Elections and What it Means for Restaurants

The restaurant industry has taken a massive hit thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. With no end in sight and no relief package since the original Cares Act passed in March, the National Restaurant Association is wasting no time in working with President-Elect Biden’s transition team.

We’re joined this week by Sean Kennedy, Executive Vice President of Public Affairs at the National Restaurant Association. Sean talked us through why the association is excited to work with President-Elect Biden, the policies the National Restaurant Association is focused on, and why we’re paying attention to the long game for the 2022 midterm elections.

Listen to the episode to gain a better understanding of the National Restaurant Association’s legislative strategy.
