8:05 pm
coronavirus tracker. >>shocking numbers about the stay at home effect on san francisco restaurants, half of the restaurants in the city could permanently close their doors, those figures are according to an estimate from the golden gate restaurant association. we have a chance now to talk more about this with lorrie thomas she is the association's executive director lori this is a difficult subject particularly san francisco being one of the. >>restaurant capitals in the it's tough to talk about that at least set the scene and give us a sense of what led you to make that prediction. >>yes so thank you for having me and i appreciate the opportunity to speak out. you know it is a difficult situation and we certainly hope that we don't see our guys come to pass, but i'm sure growing are the number that the california restaurant association got from a survey about a month ago, especially in the u.s., an estimated 30%. i'm not opening and then we saw the james beard foundation on a similar survey in new
8:06 pm
york and again these are mostly smaller restaurants under 5 million they surveyed about 1700 of them. only in to speak at one 5 were reopened which is 20%. now we have the end of last year about 3900 brick and mortar restaurant in san francisco and i actually 2 of them so i feel pain personally as well as being the executive director lisa stark doors on march 16th of those 3900 roughly 88% are under 2.5 million unemployed referee between 5.25 employees. you know to 30 employees and those are the folks that are having the hardest time getting any sort of funding or really and they don't have access to the capital like a larger change that you see not be able to support from stops. so when you say 2.5 million you talk about annual revenue, yes, excuse me noon for last year, yeah there's 88% of all of our brick and mortar restaurant in san francisco under 2.5 million in revenue. >>and for example that didn't
8:07 pm
fly between say anywhere from 5 employees are much smaller shops to perhaps 30 to 40 employees on that on the high at in addition to the size of the restaurant, what makes a particular restaurant vulnerable this closure that the shutdown the are going through. >>yeah, can i can speak personally to drought and we're just not of us had enough cash reserves to anticipate the music stopping us and saying 100 pretty good shape coming coming first of all the time of the year's top not a restaurant and a lot of cash in the early part of the year. you just pay all your some christmas sales are those taxes saying so we were not to be the most robust cash position for restaurants timing was certainly we keep the cast and 3rd and nobody would anticipate going from running 5 to nothing rights and we shot start to slow down the end of february was are you know supers smart recommend everybody jenna our emergency operation by 2 days
8:08 pm
later, we saw a sales dropped 40% really i think all of that contraction saved our bay area and san francisco from what our friends in new york are experiencing. but it is very hard to a restaurant to not have any cash and to those for a period time or significantly reduce reckoning. >>so now we're looking at the end of may for the stay at home over most of the bay area anyway. it is that enough time it can make you think a lot of these russia's can make it to the end of may then to reopen or do they have to be some other options. >>i i think another 30 days and then even when we we do real as we've heard from all of sure government officials it's going to have to be at a reduced capacity that that's just so it takes the social distancing myself from the staff side and from the summer side dish to run a restaurant not you know 20% of their normal capacity on 50% is starting xi so it would have been saying we need cash cash
8:09 pm
cash, you can also do a couple things that we're really hoping we can do which is maybe allow for extra outside seating in san francisco may be sitting into the parking areas in to say like a public area like it's a union square into summer streets and we'll all have to work together to me happened to be a huge win for us to the restaurants and to the city and the other thing i really we need to stance. i'm trying to get some personal protective equipment that we can access the mask this sanitizer the whites. he ideally 3 to all of our 2 older smaller business and this is so we can give them out free chips arms race or some sort of assistance they're it out we've been seen i've been seeing some posts a european style restaurant scene with more outdoor seating like you just described, but who's going to help make that happen do it's not going to several government you need to work with the city is that right. >>yes, the city and has supervisors cuts and super receptive to it. >>i know we talked to a lot of our colleagues across and i

8:11 pm
favorite restaurants all over the bay area how can they be supportive in this effort for well accomplish. >>excuse me so a couple of things thank you that you can do certainly is ordered from those restaurants patronize those restaurants ideally go and pick up a surge of words or delivery we have an emergency cap in place to cap the cost of restaurants are charged during the period of a shelter in place an emergency, but if you can go pick it up if you're people doing it to make sure all the money goes to the restaurants. also a lot of restaurants had co-signed the campaigns they set up so that the money could help to other workers unfortunately have a lot of workers in our sector that can access all of the unemployment funds to that helps low and there's a lot of fun in the city to set up it gets to san francisco and one of the surge hiller's of that is to go to small businesses which is just restaurants are totally small businesses 88% of our restaurants in the city are less than 2.5 million in revenue.
