It is symbol of starting and welcome happy new year 2021.[/caption] 2020 was a year to remember, or forget.  We all know hospitality was one of the hardest hit industries.  The restaurants that survived had to “pivot” to stay afloat.  Carry out, curbside pick up, and delivery all became the “norm”.  Restaurants and Patrice & Associates pivoted together.
