It’s Time to Rally for NH Restaurants!

900 Degrees needs you! We’re part of the statewide effort to increase patronage of local restaurants as the COVID-19 pandemic wears on. The New Hampshire Lodging & Restaurant Association (NHLRA) has organized #RallyForNHRestaurants to motivate people to dine-in, take-out, and purchase restaurant merchandise to keep our community restaurants open in the face of possible closings and staff lay-offs. To do our part, 900 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria is selling an Eat Pizza, Eat Local shirt on our website or in the restaurant for just $20.00. Proceeds of these shirt sales will go directly to the New Hampshire Hospitality Employee Relief Fund, which supports hospitality workers impacted by COVID-19-related restaurant closures and hour reductions.

In the spirit of creativity encouraged by the Rally for NH Restaurants, 900 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria is offering a merchandise incentive to our dine-in customers through the end of March. Wear your new 900 Degrees Eat Pizza, Eat Local shirt when you dine-in at the restaurant and receive $5 off your purchase of $25 or more. There is no limit to the number of visits during March to earn this shirt discount!

The shirt discount applies only one time per party and cannot be combined with other discounts or promotions. Additional restrictions may apply.

For Priscilla Lane-Rondeau, owner of 900 Degrees Neopolitan Pizzeria, having the NHLRA in her corner helped her keep up with the crush of information that would have otherwise been impossible to navigate – like other restaurateurs, her hands were already full trying to keep employees working, and the restaurant lights on.

“When this first happened nobody knew what to do. All I knew was that we were going to keep the doors open and try to survive on take-out, and just see what happened. Every day we had to shift our sails, but all along the way, the NH Restaurant Association was the guiding factor. They kept us all informed,” Lane-Rondeau says. “Those first three months was like getting a degree in pandemic. I spent my first two to three hours every day just reading the information from Mike (Somers) before heading to the restaurant to figure out what was next.”

It hasn’t been all negative.

Both Laman and Lane-Rondeau said there has been something truly life-affirming about the level of camaraderie within the business. Both women came into the industry from corporate jobs, and say that the sense of support among fellow owners is like nothing they’ve experienced elsewhere.

“People work together in this industry,” says Lane-Rondeau who has had some #rallyfornhrestaurant T-shirts made up and will be selling them to help boost the NH Hospitality Relief Fund, which provides help to hospitality employees who are struggling due to hardship from lost wages.

Restaurants’ concerns

If the pandemic has hit retail hard, it has hit the hospitality industry harder.

Restaurants have been able to offer takeout and delivery and curbside pickup, but the industry has still lost 40,000 jobs since the middle of March. It also lost $830 million in sales, said Mike Somers, CEO of the New Hampshire Lodging and Restaurant Association.

Restaurants were allowed to open for outdoor dining on May 18, but Somers estimated that only 40 of eateries would be able to take advantage of it.

“A lot of them don’t have access to outside seating, and for others it doesn’t make economic sense” said Somers.

But many will give it a try. 900 Degrees in Manchester planned to use its existing covered deck as well as set up 10 more tables in the parking lot.

“This is all new to us,” said Priscilla Lane-Rondeau, adding that sales fell 80% when the restaurant was limited to takeout and curbside pickup. Still, with the help of a PPP loan, she was able to keep on 14 staff members. Now she’ll be able to call in another 10, she said.

“I think they will come,” she said of customers. “There are people with high risk who will have to take care of themselves, but for many people, they are ready. They are ready.”

Great NH Restaurants plans to double outdoor seating at its 10 T-Bones, CJ’s, Cactus Jack’s and The Copper Door restaurants. Theoretically, that would mean almost 75% of the capacity of the chain’s indoor dining seating, but in reality, “There is no playbook,” said owner Tom Boucher. “We are making up the rules as we go. Tents in the parking lot? There is nothing we can compare this to.”

The tables – spaced seven feet apart and 14 feet on the aisles – will seat six, but many won’t be full. And, tents or no, Boucher said he is not going to require his wait staff to work in the pouring rain. Thus the decision to call staff will change day to day depending on “sophisticated weather apps,” he said.

The good news is that almost all of his workers are willing to come back, despite the option of generous unemployment benefits.

“They are missing the work. Hopefully, the guests will be able to see the smile behind those masks in their eyes,” he said.

His restaurants have been losing about $100,000 a week with takeout and delivery only, he said. With outdoor-only dining, he added, “we are still going to lose money, but I have no idea how much. That is the scariest part of this.”

Indeed, even as opening day approached, many restaurants in New Hampshire were still obtaining permits from municipalities to expand their outdoor seating. Some. like Concord, were considering closing Main Street, but hadn’t decided by opening day. Manchester allowed restaurants to set up tables in front of neighboring stores, with permission of the neighbors.

“We haven’t gotten approval for anyone yet,” said Richard French, CEO of the Works Café, which has locations in Concord, Keene and Durham, at a Business and Industry Association webinar presented on the Friday before the reopening.

Meanwhile, Somers is already asking the Governor’s Economic Reopening Task Force to allow indoor seating for on June 1.

900 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria Announces Reopening Outdoor Dining Service

“I am thrilled to reopen our deck for al fresco dining,” said Priscilla Lane Rondeau, owner of 900 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria. “Our deck has always been a popular spot when the warm weather arrives in New Hampshire.
