Re-Open Restaurants in WNY

0 have signed. Let’s get to 25,000!


We in Erie County’s restaurant industry are looking for support from our neighborhood friends. Our industry employs over 65,000 people in Erie County, of which 25,000 are currently out of work. This industry provides income for countless people and associated businesses (servers, cooks, dishwashers, cleaners, farmers, food and beverage distributors, supply companies, drivers, the list is longer). As you can see, the closing of this industry impacts hundreds of thousands of local western New Yorkers. We are asking you to sign our petition and show your support for the voiceless thousands that are impacted. We know COVID is real. We’re only asking for the ability to reopen our businesses safely. We want to get back to work and give back countless jobs to this community.

We are Buffalonians battling for every operator, every server, every bartender, every cook, dishwasher and more, who supports a family working in our industry.  These are people.  They have been silenced...We are their voice.
