Help Support Apollo Chinese Restaurant's Staff

Apollo Chinese Restaurant has been feeding generations of Cornell students at the heart of Collegetown since 2004. It was a place dear to students looking for an affordable and quick meal. Their combo meals were filling and the restaurant offered delivery until after midnight. It was especially a place for comfort food to Chinese students, many of whom viewed the restaurant as an enclave for healing homesickness.

Unfortunately, like other Collegetown restaurants, Apollo has been hit hard by the pandemic. The owners suffered a lot of losses this year. I’m sure many of you would have loved to see Apollo's survive for years to come. Sadly it will close its doors soon. They made the tough decision to sell the restaurant. Even though we won't be able to save Apollo.

We started this campaign so that students and alumni who have enjoyed the convenience of their late-night cheap eats can contribute and help cover the restaurant owners’ losses. Eateries like Apollo made our college years special and a bit easier during stressful times. Let’s help them out and bid Apollo farewell.

This campaign has been approved by the staff at Apollo.
