Meet Jimmy Liang, Founder, CEO, and Chef of JP Fuji Group. Fuji at Kendall, closed since March, is one of five restaurants Liang operates. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ➖How are you reimagining the way your restaurants will do business? Without a vaccine or herd immunity, we will all have to approach reopening in a careful and thoughtful manner. No one knows what the effects of COVID-19 truly are yet. How will it affect jobs? How will it affect consumer confidence? How will it affect the overall economy? I have three restaurants open right now. We are doing takeout and delivery only. We are doing contactless food service. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ➖What’s keeping your team going? Thankfully my core team and I have a shared vision. We all still believe in our business. We all believe in humanity. For the time when we closed, we worked to help our staff with translation, unemployment, and just overall navigating through the pandemic. We also worked to donate meals, and masks to front line workers. We all wanted to help support the workers that have kept America going. We all believe in leaving every place we find just a little better than we first found it. It is important to keep doing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ➖What are your hopes for when we reopen local businesses? I hope all businesses will survive this pandemic. It is vital to our economy that Main Street businesses keep going. I hope for life to go back to normal as we reopen. #kendallcollective
