Post Covid-19 hospitality sector. Here are some solutions for restaurants that do not have a lot of seating capacity inside and want to expand outdoor dining space options.

Following the global pandemic, hospitality industry at large will be greatly affected, and restaurants will reopen their doors to customers on condition that special hygienic and social distancing measures are taken. Let us see now how “restaurants will look like after Covid-19” and what are Alfa’s proposals to minimize its impact and boost turnover.

Restaurateurs will have to work out a new business model: to attract customers and to convince them that they can safely eat a scrumptious Italian pizza in your outdoor space keeping the right distance between people. Fortunately, warm weather is coming so we can spend more time outdoors.



Government measures against Covid-19.

The measures against Covid-19 for restaurants can be summed up as follows:

  • Checking the customers temperature as they enter the restaurant.
  • Placing hand sanitiser at the entrance of the restaurant.
  • All restaurant workers are required to wear face masks and gloves.
  • The restaurant must be properly sanitised after each service (disinfecting tables, chairs, walls, door handles, etc.)
  • The restaurant tables must be placed at least 1,5 metre apart, reducing seating capacity by half.
