CHARLOTTE — Veteran local restaurateur Jon Dressler expects a scaled ramp-up across his restaurant portfolio after securing funds via the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program.
His restaurant group, Rare Roots Hospitality, operates Dressler’s Restaurant locations in midtown Charlotte and Huntersville, The Porter’s House in south Charlotte, Fin & Fino in uptown and Dogwood Southern Table in SouthPark.
Most of Dressler’s 242 employees have been furloughed since mid-March.
Dressler declined to share specifics on his PPP funding, saying only it is a “great source of relief.” He estimates payroll across his five restaurants is about $90,000 a week.
