GRAND ISLAND, N.Y. (WIVB)–Restaurant owners say the governor’s announcement is great news for their businesses. Now limited to 10 guests per table, instead of 4, restaurant owners say they will be able to feed more families.
The change puts all restaurants in Western New York back on an even playing field.
The owner of Eggsquisite Eats on Grand Island says families will benefit.
“Everybody’s out after church, and they want to come in and eat as a family and it makes no sense that, why drive together with no mask on you come in together as a family and you have to sit apart?” Tim Lango said.
And he says he’s looking forward to getting back to business as normal.
“I’m optimistic that this will keep going down. It’s obviously real, but at the same time, we’re taking every precaution we can, and we’re doing everything by the book,” Lango said.
