The hospitality industry has been hard hit by COVID-19. I spoke with Pete Beukema, Visionary and CEO of Suburban Inns about the impact of the the last few months on hotels and restaurants, and what they're expecting summer and beyond.


In this Member Question of the Day video, Pete Beukema, veteran of hotel and restaurant ownership, compares the COVID-19 impact with that of the Great Recession. He gives a closer look at how the pandemic has hit his industry, and takes us through the projections for what lies ahead in the coming years. The industry is moving forward with new purpose, and Pete encourages us that it's safe to hit the road to start supporting hospitality businesses in our state.

This is part two of a two-part Member Question of the Day video series with Pete Beukema of Suburban Inns. View part one here.
