How To Reopen Your Restaurant After Lockdown

Published

on

Restuarant lockdown covid

It seems like lockdown is going to be lifted a little earlier than economists may have predicted. This is great news but it presents a challenge for your retail businesses; especially restaurants. How do you get people back to your establishment without spooking them? It’s all about bolstering their confidence in your health and safety procedures while marrying this narrative with a ‘back in business’ approach. Use alluring visuals to entice customers to your restaurant and reassure them with the help of your staff. There are also some tried and true marketing tactics you should be using and slowly building up the confidence of the locals.

Train your staff

Although lockdown will be lifted soon, you still need to retain your staff to be conscious of COVID-19. It’s not a good idea to act like nothing ever happened and just carry on. Retrain your employees i.e. waiting staff to be extra courteous and careful when interacting with customers. Tell them not to touch them and don’t wipe your face or nose in their presence. Your waiting staff as well as the managers for that matter should be carrying wet wipes or antibacterial wipes that they can use to clean their hands. Wearing face masks may be something you don’t want to do because it sends the wrong signals, but it’s something you may need to do. So give your staff PPE like plastic see-through gloves, face masks and aprons if need be.

Reassuring signs

Place a sanitizer bottle on every single table; including those that are outside. Something as simple as a blackboard sign with chalk writing that reads, “all staff have been tested and are clear of the virus” would really reassure some worrisome people. You should also place signs outside and inside your restaurant that instruct customers to be careful and courteous of each other’s space and health. Signs such as ‘don’t shake hands’ or ‘cough/sneeze into your elbow’ would go a long way into showing customers, you’re not letting anyone get away with poor hygiene standards. 

At arm’s length

You want to minimize as much risk as possible, but waiting staff are supposed to be hospitable and interact with customers. One way you can make everyone’s lives easier is by using a smartphone card swiper. People who use Samsung Pay or other electronic accounts via their smartphones, to pay for their goods, can make transactions without touching your staff. They won’t be passing any contaminated real money either, which would rapidly spread germs around the restaurant. The system can also read credit cards too, so non-touch payment technology is really something you should have in your business. 

Back to basics

Restaurants have always used chalkboards and standing signs to attract business. Go back to basics and just write what your specials are, what your breakfast menu looks like and any discounts you might be doing. The more normalcy and less panic, in your brand tone, the quicker customers will flock back to your business. 

It’s been a rough few months for restaurants. Part of the excitement of eating out is being among company. It’s time to slowly but surely, reopen and use these strategies to reassure, inspire confidence and get people back to booking tables again.

Why Is Access Control So Important For Companies?

Published

on

Perhaps one of the most overlooked areas of business for small businesses is. Access control, it sounds fancy and futuristic, but it’s been around for decades. it has rapidly evolved since the dawn of modern biometrics but it has also become inflated in price and maintenance. Many small enterprises just steer clear out of it because they think it will outprice their needs. But if only they knew why it was so important and the amount of damage it prevents from happening, they wouldn’t think twice about investing in a good access control system. So why is it important, what does it provide and what could be the cost?

What is access control?

You’re probably thinking of Star Trek, where there are certain rooms on the spaceship that cannot be accessed unless you are a certain person, like the captain. Well, this is sort of the idea. You want to make sure that your own personal office is never accessible to those that you don’t want accessing it. It sounds plausible simple, but the issue is, how do you implement it and not erect a barrier between you and your workers? Access control comes in many shapes and sizes, one of them being discreet and out in the open systems. Having a keycard system is a good idea for your office. It’s open and no one feels like you have a secret password on your door that is known only by you. 

Why do you need it?

Access control puts up small borders within a business, so everything stays nice and neat! That’s one way to put it, but it basically allows for certain parts of your business to only be open to those that work for you. For example, you have managers which have access to folders and files that normal employees don’t. This isn’t because you don’t trust your employees, (or maybe you don’t) but it’s because you want those files to only be altered by those who are managing teams and projects. If everyone had access to such files, they could become overloaded with concerns that don’t really concern them specifically. 

Who can provide it?

There are a lot of options for access control security. But for small businesses, it’s probably best to find someone local instead of a large business that will charge you more. Go onto a website like Snupit and you’ll find lots of talented professionals in your area who can provide you this type of solution. It’s best to read their reviews first and their profile. Visit their page by clicking on their name or icon. Access control is a very personal layer of security, so always choose someone you can trust to implement your infrastructure.

Access control is at all levels, applicable. Whether it’s your computer network, IT, doors, rooms, and or special areas like a testing facility, access control puts up small borders to keep every section of your business safe.

How Will the US Election Impact the Stock Market?

Published

on

stocks chart

We all have a lot of questions on our plate following the results of the recent US election. We want to know what’s going to change, what’s going to stay the same and how the general switch from one president to another will impact our lives as a whole. This is perfectly natural. The truth is that with a new president will come new changes – especially considering the party in power will be switching.

One area that people are interested in seeing the results of the election’s impact is the stock market. As you can imagine, the stock market will be significantly impacted by a change in presidency. Recently, before the results of the election, the stock market was experiencing instability. Why? Because there wasn’t a clear cut front runner for the presidency – it could have gone either way. This uncertainty results in stock market instability, as investors aren’t sure where to place their money and because hedge funds aren’t sure where to invest their funds. Different presidents mean different policies, which can have a direct impact on which areas and sectors will profit and which won’t.

Now that a president has been chosen, the markets will experience a bounce. They will experience the stability they’ve been craving and more investments will be made as a result. However, as the win was for Biden, this boost will have a limited lifespan. A Trump presidency would have pushed deregulation of the markets, while a Biden presidency is likely to see more regulation. This means that the bounce will be limited.
