Restaurants adapting to Post-COVID World
The coronavirus pandemic and resulting economic downturn may drastically alter the restaurant landscape. Restaurants are struggling to stay afloat, while franchises for many chains have filed for bankruptcy such as IHOP, Chuck E. Cheese, Subway and NPC International.
A strong online-ordering presence and digital loyalty programs have been lifelines for restaurants during this crisis, as levels of digital engagement among consumers have soared. Fast casual and fine dining have risen to the challenge, creating delivery and takeout programs from scratch in order to drive revenue while dining rooms are closed. This includes accommodating larger, low-touch takeout areas and offering curbside takeout to meet new consumer demands around health and safety.
