2 Chainz is re-opening his Atlanta restaurants next week for dine-in service.
2 Chainz is making the very controversial decision to re-open all of his Atlanta restaurants for dine-in service, following Governor Brian Kemp's decision to allow non-essential businesses to get back to work.
Everything has been shut down for the last month and a bit as we have been flattening the curve by social distancing and remaining at home. Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia made the very shocking decision to allow non-essential businesses to re-open the economy, which Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms is against. Still, 2 Chainz has decided to side with Kemp, opening up the doors to his ATL restaurants next week.
Starting Monday, 2 Chainz's Escobar Restaurant and Tapas locations in Atlanta will be offering dine-in service. Safety precautions will reportedly be at the top of management's concerns. In the report by TMZ, it says that employees will have their temperature taken before each shift, with single-use paper menus being given to clients, gloves for all employees, and masks for the cooks.

If an employee is showing coronavirus symptoms, they will be asked to stay home and self-isolate for fourteen days.
The restaurants will also reportedly be bringing back hookahs, which clearly causes a safety concern.
Sales at both locations of 2 Chainz' restaurants have been down 95% during the pandemic, and the majority of the staff had to be furloughed. During the COVID-19 quarantine, Escobar locations were doing only take-out orders.
