Qdoba, Alamo operators among CARES Act grant recipients

Posted online

The operators of area Qdoba franchises and Alamo Drafthouse Cinema were the top recipients in the latest round of COVID-19 grants approved by the Greene County Commission.

Commissioners voted yesterday to award $264,700 to 43 small-business applicants of the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act funding, according to a news release. The county has approved more than $27 million to date, with a year-end deadline set to distribute the remainder of the $34.4 million in federal funds.

Qdoba franchisee Burrito Concepts LLC and Alamo Drafthouse Cinema owner Springboard Ventures LLC were the top recipients in the weekly grant round. Burrito Concepts was chosen for a $20,000 grant, and Springboard is set to receive $15,000.

Alamo Drafthouse last month closed temporarily amid a lack of new films released during the coronavirus pandemic. A reopening date has not been announced, and co-owner John Martin could not be reached for comment by deadline.

County commissioners also approved applications of $10,000 apiece for:
• Askinosie Chocolate LLC;
• Blue Noodle LLC, dba Metropolitan Grill;
• Burn Bros LLC, dba Early Bird Breakfast Pub;
• Sunshine State of Mind, dba Sun Tan City; and
• The Joshua Co. LLC, dba Linda's Flowers and Karl's Tuxedos.

The full list of recipients under $10,000 is available on the county's website.
