From The Restaurant Finance Monitor, September 2020

“Cohen advised restaurant tenants to be ‘credible, consistent, courageous and courteous. Credible: Don’t pretend to be in worse shape than you really are. Be prepared to talk about what you are doing to improve your situation. Consistent: Once you’ve figured out what you need in rent relief, ask for it and stick to it. Courageous: Do not be afraid to make the big ask, but also know that you may have to ask for more again later. If you don’t know what your future will look like, then ask for what you need now, and tell them you will talk about the future later. Courteous: Yes, we are all in this together. It’s not your fault, but it’s also not your landlord’s fault. Your landlord has payroll, too. And they have a lender and insurance and a family to support.’”
