In this time of crisis, Owners & Operators, as well as Lenders and Suppliers are looking at the rapidly changing economic landscape and wondering:
- How long will this last?
- How quickly will the economy recover?
- Can I keep my business intact for the future?
Owners and Operators have closed dining rooms and pivoted their businesses to delivery and carry-out only. While this can help pay some of the bills and keep some workers employed, it does not balance revenue with costs. The financial strains can only increase over time.
Our Government continues to aid in support of small businesses with a variety of programs to help mitigate, short term, the severity of this downturn. We feel that ultimately the long-term effects will be determined by how Debtors and Creditors, Lessees and Landlords work together to bring individual contracts to a viable, durable and workable conclusion. That ‘workable’ conclusion may entail restructuring debts, sale of assets, or a combination that will be unique to each client’s situation. The objectives must balance the needs of all the parties. Maximum flexibility will be necessary from all participants in these negotiations.
