The novel coronavirus is affecting many industries, but one of the hardest hit is restaurants. You need to be innovative to keep your business going during the pandemic, and we do not know what measures will follow or how long they will last. Here are a few tips to help your business survive the pandemic.
- Sell gift cards – Remind people that they can support your business by purchasing gift cards to use on a later date.
- Offer delivery – You have to give up a part of your profits, but working with a third-party delivery service can help you serve more people during the pandemic.
- Consider take-out – Depending on your situation, this can mean varying approaches. You may be able to allow a few customers into your restaurant at a time to collect meals. In other circumstances, you may need an outside table with stations to set out meals in a location where people can maintain proper social distancing while picking up their orders. In this case, you will need to collect payment over the phone.
These are just a few ways to keep your business going during the pandemic. As things begin to open up, remember that you may need to increase the distance between tables and seats in order to comply with social distancing rules that the government may put in place for a time.
