Support Women-Led Restaurants in March
As a member of the Association of Women’s Business Centers, we’re proud to announce that the AWBC is an official sponsor of GrubHub’s RestaurantHER initiative.
Grubhub will contribute $1 up to $1 million for every pledge to dine in or order from women-led restaurants. The first $100,000 will be contributed to the Women Chefs & Restaurateurs organization to advance women in the culinary industry. All it takes is for you to enter your email as your pledge, and use their map to find a woman-led restaurant near you.
Why is this push for equality for women in the restaurant industry so important? Here are some startling statistics:
Only 19% of chefs are women
Only 7% of chef-restaurant owners are women
Women chefs earn 28% less in base pay than their male counterparts
Only 33% of restaurant businesses are majority-owned by women
