Q: We know the hospitality industry has experienced the greatest negative impact from Covid, specifically Group Events and business travel.  - When do you expect group/business travel to return to pre-pandemic levels?   - Which market segments are already showing signs of a return? Which will take more time?

Which segments are best suited for Walnut Creek (suburban market) considering our limited supply of large group space?

In addition to owning Tellus, I also own Avocado & Company, a catering company. We experienced an 85% drop in revenue during covid. Just now are we starting to see smaller group events starting to pop back up (20 people or less). Our corporate clients, which were our majority, still have not shown any interest in holding group events. However, they are becoming much more creative with sending their employees/clients such things as happy hour boxes, virtual cooking classes, etc.

We are Twisted Times Restaurant, Sports & Spirits in North Walnut Creek, can you suggest any best practices surrounding how restaurants can best promote their meeting space, offerings and capabilities to hotel Sales Department and DMO’s?

Twisted Times is a great sports bar, with a covered patio and great happy hour. Be sure to check them out. Across from the main post office on Broadway.

I second Lynn’s recommendation of Twisted Times! Great food, drinks, service and overall ambience. Their patio is so pleasant! Owner Rhamy is a great host.
