EAT OUT: Diners, all you have to do is dine out at a participating Pierce County restaurant from November 8-12 and November 15-19. That’s it. Spend your cash at a participating full-service restaurant and you’ll get 30 percent off your tab. The discount is for food only. Alcohol is excluded from this program. The program is sponsored by Pierce County and is called Restaurant Rally. More information here.
HOW IT WORKS: Participating restaurants will be refunded a percentage of food sales by Pierce County, which has allocated $7.5 million from its CARES Act funding to pay for the program. Every restaurant that participates will receive reimbursement from Pierce County.
THE RESTAURANT LIST: I’ll do my best to compile a list of participating restaurants that I hope to publish ahead of the event, or I’ll certainly share any list Pierce County might compile. Please check this page for that list in the coming days.
Are you a restaurant owner? Would you like to participate? Here’s how you can apply.
The Pierce County Restaurant Rally program is not for every restaurant. It is aimed at restaurants with full service. If you don’t qualify for this program, you might be able to qualify for other aid programs for businesses. Here’s help for you:
