03 Apr hospitality innovations during covid-19
in the uncertain times during the current covid-19 pandemic, sadly many industries have been hit and are facing tough challenges. one of these industries is most definitely the fantastic hospitality industry. with the situation being out of anyone’s control, we can only do so much, as well as welcome new ideas and innovations to help where as possible. at sevenevents, we are doing everything possible in this period to help, including event trend research, keeping relationships strong and having regular virtual meetings.
within the wider industry, there has been a fantastic trend in the capital’s restaurants keeping in touch with their loyal customers through deliveries of food, drink and fresh goods. this is allowing consumers to mix up their cooking experiences and have a treat, helping to keep people inside and away from supermarkets and helping small businesses keep afloat. it seems to be a win-win situation which is incredibly inspiring! there are many chains that are taking part in this positive initiative and here are 7 we have picked out to share with you:
the popular burger chain has thought of the fun and interactive ‘lockdown diy patty kit’, which gives people the experience to bring the fun home and make their own delicious burgers with beef patties, brioche buns, p&b mayo, cheese slices and homemade pickled and smokey onions. sounds delicious if you ask us! website: www.hgwalter.com/products/lockdown-kit
mac & wild
the delicious restaurant inspired by the scottish highlands has also jumped on the opportunity to keep their loyal customers satisfied by allowing them to enjoy expertly cut meats, scottish game and even mac & wild’s very own haggis in the comfort of their own home. they have even introduced a very original ‘meat survival box’ for those meat lovers out there. website: www.macandwild.com
