Citrus Heights restaurant owners describe struggles during pandemic, shutdowns
Sentinel staff report–
Local restaurants last week received some welcome news from county health officials allowing indoor dining to return at 25% capacity, but mandated closures over the past year have left a lasting impact.
While some restaurants had reopened indoor dining prior to last week’s updated health order, Boston’s Pizza Restaurant & Sports Bar was among those announcing a reopening of indoor dining on Wednesday.
The restaurant’s franchise owner Gurtej Gill told The Sentinel in an email Wednesday his business had a difficult year first year, holding their grand opening just before the first round of shutdown orders last year. The new restaurant took over the former Logan’s Roadhouse building, and according to the company’s franchise requirements, a minimum of $1 to $2 million net worth with $500,000 is required to open a location.
