Downtown Restaurateurs
PEER CIRCLE

We're sorry that Shelter in Place is impacting restaurants!

The Downtown Association of Santa Cruz hosts a monthly Peer Circle for downtown restaurant owners and operators, on the last Tuesday of each month at noon. Join us next:

Tuesday, December 29th | Noon | Zoom Link

The goal is simple: to connect you to each other to support one another!

October and November peer circles included restaurateurs from 515 Kitchen & Cocktails, Betty's Eat Inn, Chocolate, Gabriella's and the Glass Jar. Topics have included winterization, delivery challenges, shared business impacts, and future outlooks.

Every month during our Peer Circle, each participant has the opportunity to ask peers for advice or help - about anything you need or want support with!

Last month, Parks&Rec joined us to get feedback on a county-wide Clam Chowder restaurant week launching in February.
