TALLAHASSEE – Today, the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association (FRLA), released a video of restaurant members and employees thanking Governor Ron DeSantis for supporting Florida restaurants by allowing them to remain open and safely operating.

“On behalf of that 10,000 members of the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association (FRLA), I want to thank Governor DeSantis for his support for our industry and the people we employ,” SAID CAROL DOVER, PRESIDENT AND CEO OF FRLA. “While other states go backwards, shutting down restaurants, putting people out of work, and crippling an already-devastated economy, Governor DeSantis promotes accountability and personal choice, and he recognizes that our teams have a right to safely operate and earn a living. Thank you, Governor DeSantis, for having the backs of more than 1.5 million Florida families who work in the greatest industry in Florida – hospitality.”
