As local restaurants reopen their doors and begin to get back on their feet, the Hallandale Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (HBCRA) has launched Inaugural Hallandale Eats – Restaurant Week, September 24- 30, 2020 to assist eateries.
Many local businesses including restaurants, eateries and caterers have experienced substantial loss in revenue or have been forced to close their doors due to COVID-19.
In response to the pandemic, the HBCRA developed an innovative and aggressive approach to providing relief for businesses including initiatives such as Hallandale Eats Week, BE Local, Order In-Hallandale Beach, and a $500,000 small business stimulus fund which assisted Twenty four (24) local businesses in remaining open and/or overcoming financial obstacles due to the crisis.
Hallandale Eats Week falls in line with the CRA’s COVID-19 response efforts and will feature twenty-two (22) of Hallandale’s top eateries participating free of cost. The event will also allow patrons to enjoy prix-fixed meals-to-go or for delivery for an affordable price in effort to promote safety.
In addition to free digital promotions, participating location also received branded delivery bags, posters & other printed materials that will remind patrons to shop and eat locally in the City of Hallandale Beach.
According to interim city manager and CRA executive director Dr. Jeremy Earle, “The goal of Hallandale Eats Week is to help stabilize local restaurants & eateries by providing the support they need to sustain during these difficult times. The CRA team believes that it will take a city-wide joint effort to help Hallandale remain the diverse & thriving city that we have come to know and love. We encourage all Hallandale residents & surrounding areas to Eat and Buy Local. ”
