“Like many of Florida’s small businesses, Anna Maria Oyster Bar closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“In April, Anna Maria was approved for a Paycheck Protection Program loan.
“And this enabled them to keep over 320 employees paid until their restaurants were able to reopen
“So congratulations to the entire team at Anna Maria Oyster Bar on being named the Senate Small Business of the Week!
“I look forward to your continued success and your continued service to your community.”
