#EntrepreneursStayAlive: Wendy Alberts CEO Restaurants Association of South Africa

The restaurant industry has just received further clarification from government that ALL their operations whether sit-down or take away must shut down come midnight on Thursday, 26 March 2020. Whilst these are necessary measures to “flatten the curve” on COVID-19, it does have very real & dire consequences for restauranteers. Currently there are restrictions on trading hours but soon there will be no trading at all. How does the restauranteur respond to this? What about staff? What about rent? What about the loan repayments? Andile Khumalo got to chat to Wendy Alberts, the CEO at the Restaurants Association of South Africa (RASA). #EntrepreneursStayAlive #IAMANENTREPRENEUR
