The BACC is proud to announce that relief is on its way for area restaurants. The booming restaurant industry in Burlington has created a severe shortage of workers to fill open positions. Working with MA Representative Ken Gordon, MA Senator Cindy Friedman, and The Middlesex 3 Coalition, we were able to secure funding for a shuttle to get workers from Lowell to Burlington restaurants. President Rick Parker said, “It took a lot of hard work, perseverance and strong public/private partnerships to make this happen. We consider ourselves to be problem solvers, so we’re very proud that we’re able to make tangible differences that will help the hospitality industry to be able to thrive here now and in the future. Transportation is a significant challenge in our area. It's rewarding to have been part of a solution that will secure employment and mitigate traffic.” Click here for complete story.
