UPDATE: Since publication, 2 Chainz and his business partner have decided to keep their restaurants closed at this time, putting off earlier announced plans to open on Monday.
Rapper 2 Chainz, who is part owner in the Atlanta eateries/hookah establishments Escobar Restaurant and Tapas, says he is ready to re-open for sit-down service, after only offering takeaway since the city was put under stay-at-home orders.
And you should know they have a plan in place.
Starting this Monday, his business partner Snoop Dillard tells TMZ, they're making customer safety a top priority, including implementing temperature checks, mandatory personal protective equipment, and single use menus, allowing them to be open for dine-in service.
This is all thanks to Georgia's governor, Brian Kemp, who said this week he is easing restrictions in order to open the city back up for business. Even with medical experts and the city’s mayor, Keisha Lance Bottoms warning it could be too soon.
Between the two locations, Dillard says they were down 95% in sales and were forced to furlough 80% of the staff. This Monday, they hope to bring 80 employees back to work with the hope of everyone returning, eventually.
Because DJs need to pay the bills as well, 2 Chainz and Dillard say they will be bringing back music on the weekends, but will not be hosting any epic ragers at this time.
