The COVID-19 pandemic has undoubtedly taken a toll on the nation’s economy, and Black-owned restaurants are feeling the sting as a result.
However, in order to continue to generate income and meet customer demands, many Black-owned restaurants have adapted to these regulations by developing delivery options for customers.
Check out these six Black-owned restaurants you can support during the outbreak and get a tasty meal at the same time.
The Atlanta-based vegan eatery — owned by businesswoman and philanthropist Aisha “Pinky” Cole — is known for its tasty vegan hamburgers and bacon. It is not uncommon for the shop to have hundreds of customers waiting to place their order in a line that stretches blocks from the main entrance. Many celebs like Jermaine Dupri and Grant Hill love the vegan options offered by Slutty Vegan. Since the outbreak, the vegan restaurant has moved its ordering process online and offers delivery.
