Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF)

  • April 21, 2021

Our colleagues at The Coppola Firm shared this great post on the new Restaurant Revitalization Fund for food, beverage, and hospitality-related businesses in the United States. https://coppola-firm.com/2021/04/restaurant-revitalization-fund/?fbclid=IwAR1d2fKxIIibgMESO0xTAFjzE_vFZiBG26EuFYbSDUbBy5P3zZ623xGHnuI and we thought we would help spread the word.
