PRESS RELEASE:

TUCKER, Ga. (May 13, 2020) – The City of Tucker unveiled a new web application Wednesday that will help residents sort through the various levels of service being offered by restaurants during the coronavirus pandemic. “Tucker Open for Business” features an interactive map that will allow users to see whether restaurants are open for delivery, takeout, dine-in, or all three.

“This app will give users access to information about every one of the 123 restaurants within Tucker’s city limits,” said app designer David Zeh, who serves as Tucker’s GIS Analyst. “We’ve found that restaurants are in all stages of re-opening right now, so we hope that this will help make it easier for people to patronize our great Tucker businesses.”

“It’s no secret that Tucker has some of the best and most eclectic restaurant options around from down home cooking to international flavors from all over the world,” added Economic Development Director John McHenry. “We developed this tool to help our Tucker foodies to more easily navigate all the amazing choices out there and assist our local restaurants in this challenging time.”

The app features a list of all restaurants grouped by their level of service, as well as an interactive map, where users can zoom in and select businesses in a certain area. Each entry provides links to the specific restaurant’s website.
