Now post Covid 19 restrictions and now we are as a major Hospitality Industry returning to full service, dine in and enjoy opening our amazing venues to the wider public. Takeaway is reducing and the return of the sit down and socialise Café, Restaurant and Bar experience is returning fast.
For many loyal and regular customers pre pandemic days have been patiently awaiting the “All Clear” lifting of our Covid 19 trade restrictions and the seemingly endless Lockdowns! How is Freedom in many states and we all are seeing the return to the new normal. Dine in – Sit down consumers are expecting greatness in your venue – Not the same, same past 18 months of takeaway and reduced menu options all at low staffing services with Chairs upside down upon tables and service areas roped off to no public access.
Hospitality businesses that don’t Reboot / Adapt / Return quickly to full service, with exciting Menu options and skilled staffing levels to match will simply in the new normal be left behind. Consumer is KING and they will now seek to vote via their Wallet / Purses.
To this point, Full Menu beverage options need a spring / summer refresh, please be different, please bespoke barista made where ever possible. Remembering to recreate the Fifth Wave of Café Coffee & Tea that is quality and service. Takeaway has cost our local environment and added so much to landfill not to mention the additional costs of packaging vs. dine in crockery and / or reuse cup programs returning in 2021.
