Restaurants and Eateries are trying new ideas and methods to make it safe for their diners to eat out again.

There is no doubt that COVID-19 has impacted several industries worldwide, including food and beverage, like never before. Restaurants are now working hard to get back on their feet and adapting to the new normal. They are welcoming the people for dine-in services as the lockdown is lifted in most of India. 

Several cities across India, including Delhi, Bangalore, and Ahmedabad, are scurrying towards normalcy with a 70% estimated recovery rate in the festive quarter. Simultaneously, Chennai, Kolkata, Jaipur, Hyderabad are also getting back with a 55% recovery rate. After opening up in the last week, Mumbai and Pune have observed a promising 10x increase in diners than the previous weeks. 

Restaurants are now trailblazing to introduce new and innovative ways to make it #SafeToEatOut for diners while assigning utmost importance towards hygiene and social distancing (1).

Private Dining Areas

Drive-in and Drive-through Restaurants

People who are anxious about social distancings in restaurants can also choose drive-in and drive-through restaurants across the country. Ping’s Orient of Kolkata and Just FoodInn of Ahmedabad offers a special drive-in menu to diners from their vehicle’s comfort. DLF Cyber Hub, Gurgaon, allows people to pre-order food via their app and select self-pickup via a special drive-through.

This growth curve’s credit goes to eateries promoting Quick Response, QR code-driven digital menus, and digital payments to minimize contact.

Estimates also suggest that mobile ordering would increase as consumers view it as a safe and convenient option.
