Don't let ghost kitchens scare you. They could be a vision of the future
Op-Ed By Melissa Fleischut
At NYSRA, we believe that brick-and-mortar restaurant storefronts are one of the last players standing in an increasingly dire ground-floor retail environment. We believe that our governmental bodies should be doing everything they can to protect these businesses, which are the lifeblood of economic corridors and essential to maintaining our local economies.
So, while it is tempting to turn our attention to the novelty of ghost kitchens, NYSRA would rather focus on the context that led operators to open them in the first place.
