Business Owner Spotlight

The New Townhouse Restaurant

During the pandemic, The Center has worked to help business owners find new sources of income. In one success story, Anderson told Suite Life SoCal, she helped Rosalind Pennington, owner of The New Townhouse restaurant in Los Angeles, get a contract with the city of L.A. to provide food for senior citizens. Since then, Pennington has received two additional contracts and hired back her chefs and back-office staff.

“The Center was key in helping me to pivot during COVID-19. They provided the necessary resources to help my business develop and grow in general. They also offered 15 online classes to help my business grow during the pandemic.” Pennington explained.

“In addition, the classes were not just for me as an owner, but The Center provided resources for me to educate my staff with the certification courses needed in the restaurant industry,” Pennington enthusiastically shared.
