In times like these it's great to see that some local businesses do well and even thrive. Two of those locations are Gypsy Highwayand  Fat Sacks in Davenport.

The owner of Gypsy Highway, Richardson stated in an interview with KWQC 6 that the restaurant has changed some of their business plans and welcomed the opportunity. Even though the restaurant is able to serve dine-in guests now, some changes that they've made will be permanent.

This business will be continuing many of the changes they have made,

"We had to re-develop the business plan from being a music venue over to more of a restaurant with a carry-out business..."

They also plan on continuing their new lunch hours that the implemented earlier. Another big help is the social media pages like QC Emergency Take Out.

That public group page states,

"We want every Quad City area restaurant to have a place to post their carry out and take out menu during this crazy time! Please update it daily and add any specials."

The page has over 30,000 members at the time of writing this. Their latest post is a shout out to Village Corner Deli,

"The Village Corner Deli is open for business today our apologies in advance the phone lines are currently down. Stop to dine in or carry out."

Other business that have been doing great are places like Fat Sacks In Downtown Davenport. The stationary food truck says that demand has increased over 300% since they reopened for carryout in April. News like that is great to hear.
