Residents asked to support local restaurants through CarryoutPA.com

Posted
The Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development’s (DCED) Tourism Office encouraged Pennsylvanians Tuesday to support local restaurants by visiting the CarryoutPA website, which offers a comprehensive list of restaurants offering takeout, curbside or delivery services during the state’s stay-at-home order.
 
“As this public health crisis continues to unfold, it is important that we practice social distancing and adhere to the stay-at-home order when possible,” said DCED Secretary Dennis Davin. “But it’s also critical to remember that we can all still do our part to support the restaurants in our communities as they work to provide safe dine-out options.”
 
CarryoutPA.com was developed by the Pennsylvania Restaurant and Lodging Association in support of the commonwealth’s restaurant industry, which accounts for 10 percent of jobs statewide. Pennsylvania restaurants that would like to be added can register at carryoutpa.com.
 
“Restaurants in Pennsylvania and the nation have been hit hard by the mandated closure of dine-in service due to COVID-19,” said John Longstreet, PRLA president & CEO. “Any restaurant in Pennsylvania that is open for take out and delivery may add their listing to CarryOutPA.com, at no charge.”
