Today, Howard County Executive Calvin Ball launched an innovative new map for Howard County restaurants and bars to list their delivery and carryout options. The resource, “HoCo Food Go” is available online and via mobile device and allows customers to see an overview of restaurants, including their website, phone, hours and location. To date, 94 restaurants provided information for inclusion. If you would like your restaurant listed, please be sure to complete this online form.
“The coronavirus pandemic has been a disruption and challenge for all of us, but our restaurants and their employees have been significantly impacted,” said County Executive Calvin Ball. “By creating ‘HoCo Food Go’ our administration wanted to do whatever we could to help them persevere these tough times. We can assist many of our neighbors and friends by coming together and looking out for our local businesses and their employees. I’m incredibly thankful to every employee working in the food service industry from restaurants to grocery stores to delivery services. Your service is essential to our health and we appreciate the efforts of you and your families at this time.”
Listings can be viewed on a map or in a list. Restaurants can also be filtered by type, including deli, bakery, fast food, casual fast, casual contemporary, and traditional. Each restaurant description also includes information about carry out alcohol, dietary restrictions, and kids menus.
“On behalf of the Visit Howard County board and staff, we are proud to have worked alongside Howard County Executive Calvin Ball and Howard County Government on the new HoCo Food Go website,” said Amanda Hof, Executive Director for Visit Howard County. “HoCo Food Go will be an important resource to residents and support our restaurant community during the COVID-19 crisis.”
“We have several restaurants open to serve our community and we are excited about the launching of the county website, HoCo Food Go to help people find and support our businesses,” said Alicia Jones-McLeod, Executive Director of the Ellicott City Partnership.
