Businesses in downtown Detroit are preparing for a busy weekend due to the Detroit Grand Prix. Many are preparing for an influx of consumers and the “Small Business Straightaway” event of the Grand Prix.
Campus Martius Park has been transformed for the Grand Prix. This weekend, the races will be broadcast for free on the large screen. For local businesses, all the enthusiasm means a substantial increase in customers.
“I’m anticipating a line out the door. Adriana Silva, a barista at the nearby Roasting Plant Detroit, remarked, “Nonstop motion.”
Silva stated that they are accustomed to and ready for large events in the downtown area.
Simply ensuring that we are stocked
Next to the park, Cadillac Square will be converted for the weekend into the “Small Business Straightaway” for the Grand Prix. It is a showcase for some of the finest local enterprises in Detroit.
It will be open on Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and feature a number of culinary trucks from Detroit.
While pit crews work this weekend to maintain the race cars on the track, local businesses will do the same for their patrons.
“Teamwork, we must ensure that we are communicating. Expel everything. “Because normally there are always lines outside the door for events like this,” Silva explained.
