Our world is going through a unique time in history. And many countries are finding new ways to deal with the virus even while saving the economy.
For you, that means you must find a new reality to live without faulting lockdown or social distance rules. How can you then save your restaurant?
1. Embrace take-out and delivery
No-contact take-out and delivery have become the norm in many parts of the world, and many more people won’t stop taking orders when the lockdown is over. So, keep your customer as well as their friends and families by optimizing this.
2. Promote gift cards
Selling gift cards is one sure way restaurants are using to create cash flow, and you can do that too. This helps you to not only get back on your feet, but it also means you don’t have to provide anything back in return.
3. Maintain communication with your customers
When all this is over, people will remember businesses that reached out to them in their most trying times. Reach out to them and let them know you care.
4. Update menu
There is danger out there, but there are also opportunities. Now is the time to evaluate your menu. Remove what isn’t selling and focus on what your customers like.
5. Ramp up digital marketing
How will people know you are there if they don’t hear from you? Promote your contents online. Revamp your website if needed and establish your presence on social media.
