Toast CEO Chris Comparato issued the following statement in support of the Independent Restaurant Coalition’s (IRC) Day of Action to put pressure on Congressional leadership and the White House to replenish the Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF):
“Throughout 2021, the operating environment remained challenging for restaurant operators as they faced the challenges of pandemic-related closures and restrictions, a sustained labor shortage and rising input prices due to supply chain disruption and accompanying inflation. Toast is proud to join the Independent Restaurant Coalition and urge Congress to replenish the Restaurant Revitalization Fund. It is challenging to run a restaurant in this environment and we are committed now more than ever to being the true partner to the restaurant industry, just as we’ve been since the onset of the pandemic and for the last ten years.”
