Comptroller Franchot Urges Marylanders to Support Small Businesses During COVID-19


Restaurants, breweries and other businesses trying to keep the lights on by offering carryout and delivery service; county-by-county list to be updated daily on agency website

As Maryland’s local, independent businesses try to keep the lights on by offering their products or services via pick-up, delivery or other creative methods, the Comptroller of Maryland is compiling a daily updated list of restaurants and related businesses (organized by county) that continue to serve customers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Local businesses are the beating heart of our state’s economy and the backbone of our communities,” Comptroller Peter Franchot said. “They are being decimated through no fault of their own, leaving their survival and the fate of the tens of thousands of Marylanders they employ — as well as their families — in jeopardy. We have to pull together and help them keep the lights on during this period of deep uncertainty and loss.”
