Many of us have had to adjust to the new norms post COVID-19, such as working from home, staying in quarantine and the newest norm of eating-out turning into eating-in.
Many food establishments have voluntarily closed their dining spaces in order to lessen the spread of the virus. They have chosen to adapt to a form of business that prioritizes take-out and delivery in order to operate safely – for the sake of their customers and employees.
Offering delivery can help restaurants manage costs during COVID-19 and also allows them to easily transition back into normal working conditions. Restaurants often select a single third-party delivery service to partner with, yet this is an area in which they can save more money by insourcing their food deliveries. All you need to do is educate your own employees on the practice of food delivery.
This new norm is very important to execute correctly if the food establishments want to guarantee quality service. Following safe food handling is a critical aspect of food delivery. The assurance of one’s food arriving safely to the customers’ house from the restaurant is dependent on many factors.
Practicing self hygiene, proper food handling, safe pick up, inspection of orders, avoidance of food tampering and management of temperature controls are all involved when delivering food.
During these times, a new important aspect is the contactless delivery “leave at your door service” to help food couriers and customers adhere to social distancing guidelines. This allows for proper prevention of the spread of COVID-19.
