ASHLAND -- Ashland County residents have a new tool to find dining options during the restaurant and bar shutdown ordered by Gov. Mike DeWine last week, which closed all dine-in services and limited businesses to carry out and delivery until further notice.
The website, AshlandDining.com, was created by Spire Advertising in partnership with Explore Ashland to help drive business to local restaurants and serve the community, according to a press release from Amy Daubenspeck, Executive Director of Explore Ashland.
"The recent shutdown across the State of Ohio and country have dramatically impacted local restaurants and bars," Daubenspeck said in the release.
AshlandDining.com can be used to locate local carry-out and delivery options available and hours for each. This resource will be updated daily as options change.
According to a 2018 Dining Trends Survey, Americans eat out 4.9 times per week on average, but restaurants in Ashland County have seen those crowds diminish in a matter of days.
"The dine-in limitations at these locations is one of many ways the fabric of our daily life has changed in recent days. The community can continue to support friends and neighbors by making a point of ordering from these local restaurants," Daubenspeck said.
