Buffalo bar and restaurant owners say loan programs don't work for them
Melissa Fleischut, the President and CEO of the NYS Restaurant Association, says the association is pushing for a program that would take into account the unique operation of bars and restaurants.
"We would love to see some kind of specific restaurant industry recovery fund made available to this industry. It's just been a devastating impact across the board on the industry," she said.
The NYS Restaurant Association is encouraging Congress to add funding to the PPP, but also to find a way to help restaurant and bar small business owners.
