“It’s devastating to the industry as a whole, not just the restaurant industry, talking about all of the little mom and pop shops, down in Center City, or at a mall, it’s going to devastate all of the small businesses,” Fetfatzes said.
Fetfatzes was in the process of reopening indoor dining when the restrictions were announced. He says his businesses will have to continue to evolve and pivot to accommodate the limitations.
