COVID-19 has had a major impact on the way local Regina entrepreneurs run their businesses. While the fallout from the pandemic has been felt city-wide, businesses in the food and hospitality industry have been hit especially hard.

We can promise you you'll be glad you did once things return to normal. Whether you're feeling like Indian food, a good pub burger, or something a little fancier, there is a Regina restaurant out there that can satisfy your craving, and they really need your help right now.
