Restaurants Will See Some Changes When They Re-Open
With plenty of time on our hands lately, one’s mind tends to think about what the future holds post Coronavirus Crisis. Such was the case for me earlier this week. I drove thru a local restaurant’s food pick-up lane to get some lunch and while in line was thinking about how their business might change when they re-open. Oh there will be changes, not only for them, but all businesses in how they operate.
Here is how I see things in the future for restaurants across America in the post Coronavirus crisis, especially if we do not have a vaccine developed yet.
For one, I can see servers being asked to wear masks and perhaps gloves while serving food to customers. The usual table locations will be altered to provide more space between customers. I believe the traditional menu has seen its last days with paper place-mats replacing them on the tables for customers to order from.
Like sugar packets, salt & pepper will be available in that form as well with the traditional salt and pepper shakers being replaced. The same thing goes for ketchup and mustard bottles as well. I wouldn’t be surprised either to see disinfectant wipes on every table for customer usage. I am certain there will be other changes that customers will need to adapt to in the future as well.
Despite the potential changes I am seeing in the future, I still am looking forward to the day when I can go out to my favorite restaurants and enjoy some great meals and best of all a chance to visit with people again.
