Durham Restaurant Survey

COVID-19 Impact on Durham Restaurants


This study explores the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Durham, North Carolina restaurant industry. Specifically, we want to understand the effects of COVID-19 on your restaurant revenue and your ability to keep your staff employed. We also would like to know how you are coping, and what support you need now and in the future.

Durham restaurant owners and managers; we want to hear from you! The survey is anonymous, and does not ask for the name of the business or the name of the owner/manager. So feel free to share all your experiences, good or bad.

What are the benefits?

We will share the study results with the Durham restaurant community, the Durham City mayor, Durham County commissioners, and local philanthropic foundations. We hope that the information shared is used by our local leaders to address factors that impact your business. In addition, we will make the results available on this website. We hope that business owners and managers will be able to leverage this information when making requests for better support.
