Initiative highlights businesses offering online, takeout and delivery options
On Tuesday, March 24, the City of Brentwood launched the “Open for Takeout” initiative to encourage the community to continue supporting local businesses during the Coronavirus pandemic. Due to its popularity, the City has now opened it up to all of Williamson County restaurants. As of Thursday, 31 restaurants have filled out the survey and included their services on the map.
First, restaurant owners need to fill out a survey to indicate if they are offering takeout, curbside, delivery and drive through options while practicing social distancing. We encourage every Williamson County restaurant owner to take the survey here. Once the survey is complete, the information will be automatically placed on this interactive map located on the city’s website, along with several others throughout the county.
The initiative was launched to helped businesses and restaurants while closed following Tennessee Governor Bill Lee’s Executive Order 17 on March 22, 2020 which prohibited the operation of dine-in-only restaurants.
