Industry Association: 82% of State’s Restaurants Operating

COLUMBUS, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – Restaurants continue to gradually reopen across the state, with 82% of the state’s 23,000 eateries now doing at least carryout and many bringing people inside.

That figure was down around 50% when only carryout and delivery were permitted.

The Ohio Restaurant Association says three-percent of the businesses may never reopen.

That translates into 700 closed businesses.
