A Note On The State of The Trade
Obviously, the hospitality industry has been devastated, however, retailers are thriving and the restaurant industry is plotting its return. We are fighting for you and we are fighting for the infrastructure of Los Angeles, to see the best in the business return to grandeur. We had over 3000 quality trade contacts and that list has taken a beating, but as we are omnipresent in L.A. we will spend hundreds of work hours reconnecting our trade partnerships and will share our results with you.
