As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, the foodservice industry is forced to adapt in order to survive unpredictable times. New practices and processes are being adopted by restaurants to protect food handlers and customers from COVID-19. With the reopening of the country seemingly on the horizon, it is critical that the foodservice industry take appropriate measures to continue protecting those that rely on it the most.
The foodservice industry is currently facing an unprecedented challenge in the form of the COVID-19 pandemic. The crisis has forced businesses to adopt brand new practices and processes to ensure that they can still get food and beverages to customers safely and efficiently. From getting serious about food safety to offering revolutionary services like contactless delivery, there are plenty of strategies restaurants can adopt in order to adapt to these strange circumstances.
With the COVID-19 pandemic drastically changing nearly every aspect of our lives, many have come to rely on food delivery as a source of comfort during these difficult times. As the demand for takeout and delivery increases, restaurants have temporarily waived delivery fees and focused their efforts on offering the safest possible takeout experience for customers. COVID-19 has been shown to live on surfaces like cardboard for up to 24 hours, and multiple days on plastic and stainless steel surfaces. Naturally, this has led to questions about the safety of delivery and takeout options.
