Message from EMERGING CEO, Mathew Focht

Over the last week, the immensity of the COVID-19 outbreak, and the severe impact it is having on our industry, has come to light. I wanted to reach out to our clients, partners, and business leaders in the industry to share how our team is working to support and advocate for you during this difficult time. 

Our Support

Our business is built on helping our clients and the restaurant industry as a whole succeed. We take this responsibility even more seriously during the current crisis. 

In response to the vast amount of information (and disinformation) on the epidemic on the internet, we have launched a COVID-19 resources index to help restaurants navigate the many resources that may be available to you. We aim to provide the most comprehensive resource so please email us (info@emerging.com) if you know of additional resources that might be available in your state or county. 

Additionally, our team is working on solutions and remedies to the most pressing issues we see facing restaurants as a result of the current climate. We have created a poll below to allow you to dictate where we should spend the majority of our focus. Please let us know what challenges you are struggling with most. We will reach out with any support or resources in those areas. 

Final thoughts

This is an ever-evolving situation that will change in the upcoming days, weeks and months. Nobody can predict what the upcoming months will bring but we can guarantee we will be right here navigating it with you. 

Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions or concerns. We want to help you through this challenging time.

Mathew Focht, CEO
