Urgent Legislative Alert: Contact you State Senator and ask them to help the restaurant industry!
Massachusetts restaurants need your urgent help regarding three important issues that will help the industry get to the other side. 
  • Authorizing mixed drinks to be sold in conjunction with to-go meals
  • Addressing the accruing meals tax interest on payments that have been deferred
  • Capping the fees charged by 3rd party delivery companies to restaurants during the COVID crisis.

Please contact your State Senators today and urge them to help our industry.
