14 Newtown-Area Restaurants, Inns Split $500K In PA's #COVID19 Hospitality Industry Recovery Program Relief Funds

14 Newtown-Area Restaurants, Inns Split $500K In PA's #COVID19 Hospitality Industry Recovery Program Relief Funds | Newtown News of Interest |

More than a dozen restaurants, bars and hospitality businesses in the Newtown area received half-a-million dollars in coronavirus-relief funding earlier this year through Pennsylvania's COVID-19 Hospitality Industry Recovery Program.


Restaurants and food-service businesses received about 85 percent of Bucks County's CHIRP funding, about $5.9 million, while accommodation businesses received just over $1 million. Of that funding, $500,000 was directed to Newtown-area businesses.


Eleven received grants of $40,000, the largest amount offered by Bucks County officials:


Green Parrot Restaurant, Isaac Newton's Restaurant, Jules' Thin Crust Newtown, Ko Restaurant, Piccolo Trattoria Catering, Sycamore Grill, The Barn Inc., The Fancy Fig Cafe & Catering (Wrightstown), The Grey Stone Fine Food & Spirits, Vecchia Osteria, and Vince's Pizzeria & Taproom (Wrightstown).


The Temperance House (Newtown Borough) received a $30,000 grant, Pat's Colonial Kitchen got a $20,000 grant and Café Con Leche (Newtown Borough) got a $10,000 grant.
