More than 450 restaurants have joined to offer takeout/delivery service

Statewide mandated dine-in closures, issued to curb the spread of the coronavirus, have left local restaurants scrambling to stay afloat and keep their staff employed.

Many now offer curbside delivery and takeout services, and a new web resource, ToGoDenver.com, created by Visit Denver, Boulder Convention & Visitor's Bureau, Eat Denver and the Colorado Restaurant Association, allows residents to find restaurants that remain open for takeout or delivery during the shut-down.

ToGoDenver.com offers local restaurants free registration to list their home or curbside delivery and takeout services available, and restaurant seekers can search listings by restaurant name, by neighborhood or by cuisine, according to a news release.

“This crisis is creating immense hardship for our local hospitality community, but this new resource gives us all an opportunity to do our part in supporting our local restaurants that have made Denver and Boulder among the finest culinary scenes in the country,” Richard W. Scharf, president and CEO of Visit Denver, said in the release. “Our hope is that ToGoDenver.com will help fill an urgent need to aid local restaurants as they struggle to remain in businesses through these difficult times.” 

Visit Denver, which also hosts the annual Denver Restaurant Week, has created a portal for restaurants to upload their information.
