Well, with this blog, we shall be discussing how restaurant business owners must cope up with the current scenario.

Are you a restaurant or food outlet owner?

Get a Feel for Change

The only thing that can help you survive amid the pandemic is change. Go, get a feel for change in terms of operation. It is for sure that you cannot run your food business like before. Amidst the lockdown, it is difficult to get any customers.

So what change are we suggesting to the restaurant owners in India, UK, USA and UAE?

The first thing is adapting to change. Food, hotel and travel industry is one of the booming industries in the world. For sure, no one would have predicted such a significant loss and break to this thriving and happening industry. But now, when the situation is pandemic and crucial, restaurant owners must learn to adapt to change by accepting the current scenario.

Go Online

India has many restaurants that are still not available for online order booking and home delivery service. This is the best time to take your business online by adapting to the change. Switching your business online means accepting the change. Get modern with your restaurant approach and mahn. This is 2020! If you will still offer home delivery by online app ordering system then when?

Just do not be confused with your business nature and operations. Get online, Offer Home Delivery by taking necessary precautions amid the pandemic.

Talk to Your Bank

Be it any startup or SME, every brand/agency holds a current account with the bank and are liable to talk to their bank manager about the overdraft facility. This is one of the crucial times where you have to express your concern with your bank manager. All these years, when your business was surviving with ease, you never had to learn about OD. But, now asking for OD as a loyal customer with your bank is your right!

Food outlet owners and hotel industry owners, who have the habit of savings are doing well currently. But, the situation is going to continue for a few more months. Are you sure about surviving like this for a couple of more months? All the savings might get spent over the salary and other expenditure. Hence, it is the right time to learn about OD and loans.

Talk With Your Staff

The restaurant industry has a great affection towards their staff. The entire industry is doing exceptionally well because of the team. The restaurant, as well as the hotel industry, is not only known for food. These industries are well known for the service too. Hospitality is something that makes the customer a regular one in this particular industry.

Communication is the key to any problem or difficulty. We suggest you communicate with your staff about the current scenario. No income can lead your business back from spending and paying salaries. In the case of an emergency, you can talk to your bank, as we mentioned above.

Utilize the Resources

When you have more staff to take care of even during the pandemic, it is the time to utilize the resources by adopting the change and switching over to more online activities. You might have heard that popular food delivery giants like Swiggy and Zomato are now offering grocery deliveries too in selected cities.

How about adopting a similar service for the time being?

This expert tip can surely help you earn even during the pandemic, and your workforce can be utilized well.

Recently, I read a blog on a United Kingdom portal, where it clearly stated: ‘Pubs and Cafes in the UK are switching over to online grocery stores’. This idea is a booming survival tip for the restaurant and bar owners across the country.

Don’t Overlook Future

Whatever situation that we are facing currently is temporary. The world scientists and experts are looking up for the medicine as well as vaccine for COVID-19 cure. When the world has medicine for curing coronavirus, the situation will be at ease. Maybe a few more months, and we shall enjoy our routine life.

We ask you not to overlook the Future because many restaurant owners, as well as business owners, are getting impatient. Impatience leads to wrong and silly decisions. Hence, be patient and think wisely. Maybe it is time to do something more extraordinary.

Get On-Demand Delivery App

If you are already into the food delivery business, look for on-demand grocery and medicine delivery services. Get your on-demand delivery app designed ASAP to start delivering groceries and other essential items in your city. Surviving with an on-demand delivery app is one of the best ideas!

On-Demand Apps Can Prove Affordable with Monthly Subscription

Have you heard about monthly subscription apps? These monthly subscription apps are SAAS-based mobile apps that are readymade solutions for use. Being a startup owner or an SME owner, you can opt for on-demand delivery monthly subscription app for starting with your delivery operations.

Concerning the current scenario, it is better to opt for monthly rental service and pay as you use instead of investing a large amount of money for getting the licensed mobile delivery app.

Post Covid-19

The business will still have a future post-COVID-19. The countries like Japan can easily cope up with any disaster and again come up stronger with their economy because they dare to accept the failure as well as the strength to lead towards the next difficult journey.

India, USA, Europe and UK will be back with their economy in a short period. Post Covid-19 the food and travel business will see slow but steady growth. So, get prepared for other options that we were just discussing here. Switch to online food delivery, online grocery delivery or online medicine delivery business with DEONDE.
