Annapolis B&B Receives Grant to Overcome Pandemic Hurdles
Annapolis B&B declared that the company won the $2,000 business grant. The company further said that they will use the grant to purchase resources to fight the Covid-19 pandemic.
The company was located in the Maritime District of Annapolis, Maryland, which was hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic and it has forced the company to launch “Breakfast to Go” service by extending its service to non-overnight guests also.
The company has further added that they have strictly followed the SOPs and guidelines of the health department to prevent the spread of pandemic among other individuals.
Chief Executive Officer of the company, Greg Ott said, “Like many small businesses, Inn at Horn Point was quickly thrust into an unprecedented situation due to COVID-19.”
“Over the last few months, the Bonneys saw nearly all of their revenue disappear due to canceled reservations. This obstacle forced the Bonneys to think outside the box to keep their doors open and we’re excited to see them use this business grant to keep up their hard work and push forward,” Greg Ott further added in the statement.
“The grant application from the owners of Inn at Horn Point stood out because they not only showed a challenge they were facing, but ways they were thinking creatively to overcome it. The Bonneys are a prime example of small business resilience,” Greg Ott concluded.
Cory Bonney said, “We couldn’t just sit around and let our current reality destroy what we’ve built over the last 20 years.”
“Launching breakfast to go has allowed us to keep revenue coming into our business. Unfortunately, the social distancing mandates that have been put in place, as well as the need for increased standards of cleanliness has burdened us with unexpected, costly changes that we can’t ignore,” Cory Bonney added.
