Maumelle, North Little Rock restaurants receive federal funding

While just a fraction got approved, a total of 23 restaurants in North Little Rock and Maumelle received money through the Small Business Administration's Restaurant Revitalization Fund earlier this year.

The numbers were released this week by the SBA and the total amount for those 23 was $6,209,880.51 but two operations got a little more than 40 percent of that total as each received more than $1 million.

The two are:

  • C&S Deli Inc in Maumelle and operates McAlister's Delis around the state and received $1,439,113.

  • The other was Cypress Social in North Little Rock and they got $1,164,898.81.

A statement from the SBA showed that 512 restaurants in Arkansas received $93,387,368 in funding, but the dataset, that can be viewed by clicking here, shows 507 restaurants that received funds.

In Arkansas, the SBA said 1,887 restaurants applied for a total of $260,292,349 but funding was exhausted in June after more than $28.6 billion was sent to restaurants across the United States.

Restaurants in the Second Congressional District, as all of Pulaski County is, received a little more than $29.6 million for 117 restaurant operations.

Restaurants eligible to receive funding were relatively broadly defined and could include: Bars, Breweries, Caterers, Food Stands, Food Trucks, Food Carts and Saloons among others.
