CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — In March, Chesterfield Economic Development, in partnership with the Chesterfield Chamber of Commerce, launched Chesterfield Eats to Go, an online resource to help Chesterfield residents and visitors identify which restaurants near them are open for pickup or delivery during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Using a GIS mapping system format, patrons can zoom-in on their designated area of Chesterfield County, select one of the pinned restaurants highlighted on the map, and retrieve essential contact information for their desired restaurant.
The website also works on most mobile devices -- allowing residents to transfer the restaurant’s address to most mobile driving apps to ensure safe, and timely travel to pickup to-go orders.
On May 8, 2020, Governor Northam released Executive Order 61 moving much of Virginia into Phase One recovery under the Governor’s Forward Virginia Blueprint.
Executive Order 61 allows for restaurants to re-open with limited outdoor dining only. Restaurants can continue to provide food pick-up, delivery, or drive-thru services regardless of outdoor dining capabilities. “Chesterfield Eats To Go” will now include those with outdoor dining options so residents can easily identify those establishments.
“Restaurants play an essential part in our county’s commercial sector and reopening safely will be an important next step as we move forward”, said Chesterfield County Administrator Dr. Joe Casey. “Chesterfield Eats To Go’ continues to be an important tool in that effort. It makes it easy for Chesterfield residents, companies and visitors to continue to support our local restaurants that have worked diligently through this pandemic to serve our community.”
More restaurants will continue to be added to the system as their available services are verified.
If you are a restaurant offering pickup or delivery services but are not currently included on Chesterfield Eats to Go or if you are a restaurant that now offers outside dining but are not currently included on Chesterfield Eats to Go, please complete the restaurant listing form.
