A Note To Friends And Guests From Jeff Ruby

Hang In There Friends! Like many others in our industry, we were recently forced to make the difficult decision to temporarily furlough more than 600 of my employees. My extended family. Those who know me know how I feel about each and every one of them and how crushing this decision was. This has been the saddest period of my career.  I’ve dealt with challenges my entire life. At 15 years old, I ran away from a turbulent childhood and raised myself. Through perseverance and the life-changing mentorship of a football coach, I overcame the unenviable hand I was dealt. I’ve had multiple near-death experiences. After one accident in 1987, I was given only a 5% chance of recovering. In 1977, I miraculously escaped the tragic Beverly Hills Supper Club fire. I’ve had businesses succeed and businesses fail. Through it all, I had Faith. I had Confidence. And I had hope. ...

US NEWS & WORLD REPORT: SOME EMPLOYERS TO LAID-OFF STAFFERS: LET'S STAY IN TOUCH

Associated Press  • April 1, 2020, at 4:01 p.m.  By CHRISTOPHER RUGABER, AP Economics Writer  As millions of job cuts tear through the U.S. economy, a faint glimmer of light has emerged: Some employers are trying to maintain ties to the staffers they're letting go so they can more quickly rehire them once the viral outbreak has passed.  Several large retail chains are furloughing workers — a form of temporary job cut that often maintains health insurance — rather than laying them off. And many small businesses, too, are keeping in touch with workers they've had to let go.  “Anyone who's trying to lay off workers is already thinking about how they can bring them back," said Jania Bailey, CEO of FranNet, a consultancy that works with franchise companies. One of them is Tracy True, who said she's keeping in to...

Britney Ruby Miller Speaks On Behalf Of Cincinnati Restaurateurs

Britney Ruby Miller spoke today on behalf of the restaurant community and the Cincinnati-based task force she helped to assemble. Their purpose is to work alongside the Ohio Restaurant Association and the National Restaurant Association as they lobby for state and federal relief in terms of expedited employee benefits, grants and low interest loans, bailout funds, federal backing of business continuity insurance claims and more. Considering the restaurant industry accounts for 51% of the nations food distribution channels and employs up to 20% of its work force (including ancillary services like growers, distributors and vendors) it is remarkably important to the sustainability of the industry that broad and immediate support be immediately approved and distributed.

Famed Cincinnati restaurant family asking for federal bailout to keep afloat during coronavirus

CINCINNATI — At the Precinct in Cincinnati's East End, a handful of the more than 15 million Americans who work in the restaurant industry spent Thursday prepping food and hoping people will place carryout orders. But the Precinct's president, Britney Ruby Miller, said hope is not a sustainable business model. "When you think about what we need right now, it’s relief. It’s financial relief," Ruby Miller said. Ruby Miller is Jeff Ruby's daughter. She's been on her phone around the clock, advocating for a $225 billion bailout for the restaurant industry from the federal government. "We need that released immediately so these restaurants don’t plummet," Ruby Miller said. Due to the coronavirus, Greater Cincinnati restaurants can only offer carryout meals. Because of that, countless cooks, servers, dishwashers and others are being laid off. "I’m...
