During the pandemic, we had to quickly shift our business strategy from in-house dining to offering curbside pickup. We're fortunate that many of our customers over the past year have left us reviews, in which they thanked us for the cleanliness and safety precautions we have provided during COVID. Those reviews helped our restaurants stay open, even when our foot traffic decreased.
