COLUMBIA, MD – April 1, 2020 – Unleashed, a national leader in web development and digital services, is offering free web support for locally-owned restaurants as they shift to delivery and carryout orders during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
"During these challenging times, we understand the importance of coming together as a community to support each other," says Michael Spinosa, co-founder and president of Unleashed. "With local restaurants mandated to close their doors, we are grateful to do our part and help these businesses shift to pick up and delivery operations. Our digital expertise will enable restaurateurs to navigate this new reality and better engage with customers online.
The state of Maryland closed restaurants, bars, theaters, and gyms on March 16 as a public health measure to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus. However, the state has allowed restaurants to continue operations for drive-through, carryout, and delivery services. No timetable is set for the re-opening of restaurants.
With local restaurants mandated to close their doors, we are grateful to do our part and help these businesses shift to pick up and delivery operations. Our digital expertise will enable restaurateurs to navigate this new reality and better engage with customers online.
In response, Unleashed is offering its services to enhance the web presence of locally-owned restaurants that don't have the expertise or resources to shift their business models to primarily digital channels. With its expert web developers, designers, solutions architects, and project managers, Unleashed will allow restaurateurs to use their websites to better connect with customers and improve communications. The free offer will be available during the state-mandated shutdown based on Unleashed' operational availability. For more information, visit the company's local restaurant support page.
"As our company name suggests, we unleash the potential of our clients. Now, we plan to use our in-depth knowledge and skills to help local restaurants unleash their digital potential and reach existing and new customers during this difficult period of social distancing," Spinosa said.
