Local realtor and WestfordCAT volunteer, Mary McCauley sits down with Sal Buonocore, owner of Paul’s Diner to hear how he’s keeping his breakfast and lunch restaurant afloat in the shadow of COVID-19.

All but two of the restaurant’s 30-plus employees have been laid off, and to help cash flow, Buonocore said he is stretching into other areas. He has started making pizza to go, in addition to breakfast to go. He also sells T-shirts.

The interview fits under McCauley’s community activist efforts called, “Our Community Cares.”

HOW TO HELP

Buonocore said if people purchased gift cards and his T-shirts it would help with cash flow.
