Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Vendors and Other Resources

Personal Protective Equipment such as facemasks have become a necessity for safe business operations. Here are a few quick links to some of the industry’s most trusted vendors with the tools you need to reopen safely and stay open.

All California counties currently require restaurant employees to wear a facemask and some are beginning to require an additional face shield. To stay up-to-date, the California Restaurant Association makes weekly videos called “News You need to Know” which are two minute videos that break down important industry updates from our friends at the California Restaurant Association.


There is a lot of legislation going on right now that will affect restaurants in big ways. Please make your voice heard on the causes that are most important to you and your business on the local and national level.
