Grubhub Applauds House Passage of Restaurant Relief Funds and Calls for Swift Action in Senate

April 7, 2022

NEW YORK — Following the House of Representatives’ approval today of a $55 billion package for relief to restaurants and other small businesses heavily impacted by the pandemic, Grubhub, a leading U.S. food-ordering and delivery marketplace which partners with more than 300,000 restaurants nationwide, praised the House for offering a lifeline to businesses in need.

“Grubhub strongly supports replenishing the Restaurant Revitalization Fund and we applaud the House for extending a lifeline America’s restaurants need as they recover from the pandemic and grow their businesses,” said Amy Healy, vice president of government affairs at Grubhub. “For more than two years now, local restaurants have faced soaring operating costs, labor shortages, and customer uncertainty. We now call on the Senate to quickly approve this funding, which will ensure that independent restaurants—the cornerstones of our communities—can move forward and thrive.”

Since the start of the pandemic, Grubhub has invested hundreds of millions of dollars to directly support restaurants, including over $130 million in reduced or waived fees to help drive more revenue to businesses when their dining rooms were closed.
