Opening a restaurant that no one will ever eat at - new normal

Coronavirus cases surge again.

It doesn’t want you to eat there. There’s a large kitchen … but no dining area. No spacious room filled with tables and chairs inviting you to sit back and enjoy your food. In fact, employees in the kitchen can’t even take orders.

b) Safety: More importantly, it eliminates the complications of indoor dining during COVID-19. It keeps employees and customers safer since there’s no ordering process with face-to-face contact.

c) Demand: And then, there’s just plain demand. About half of all sales come from its app(s) or website. That’s triple the amount of digital orders from the same time last year or before. More and more people are choosing not to dine in.

This could be the next wave of innovation.

And this new style of restaurant is a prime example adapting to the times. In fact, this is exactly the kind of company to look out for in this pandemic.
