We are struggling with COVID and trying hard to follow the SOPs to keep ourselves and others safe from this dangerous virus. We all expect from each other to give equal importance to others’ lives in this hard time. We all know it is way too hard to keep inside the four walls; we all have our stuff and jobs to do.
COVID affects all businesses all over the world. All states and countries have set some SOPs and rules to follow to keep their residents safe. And when it comes to running a food business, it makes your duty double triple. Whereas large-scale gatherings are not allowed yet but getting food from any restaurant is allowed. And if you are running a food restaurant, it means your duty is double. With your own health, you are also responsible for many others’ health. So what should you do to make your business safe for yourself and others? I hope you are already putting extra efforts to provide a safe and clean environment and food to your clients, but here we have collected some pro tips you should follow to avoid any possible threat.
- Hire Experts For the Thorough Cleaning of Your Kitchen
The main part of your restaurant is its kitchen. If you make your staff follow the SOPs, you can save hundreds of lives. When it comes to kitchen cleaning, you might not be able to do it thoroughly as you are dealing with a commercial kitchen. This is where you can take help from an expert cleaning service. If you are on a low budget, you can get a quote for commercial kitchen cleaning beforehand. This will offer you an idea that how much you need to save for kitchen cleaning.
- Prepare Your Staff
The next important thing to do is preparing your staff. Communicate with your staff, ask them to follow the SOPs and rules the state has set for all the restaurants. Maintain a safe distance, avoid physical contact, use sanitizer, keep the apparel clean, and many others that your state asks you to implement in your restaurant.
- Minimize Your Ordering
You might not agree with this point, but it goes in your favor. If you keep the orders low, you will contact fewer people, and there’ll be less chances of becoming sick or getting infected. As it is a hard time, and it shall pass, and this time the only thing that should be your priority is your health and life over the money.
- Update Your Safety System
By updating your safety system, you will be able to support others. Ask your clients or customers to wear a mask, use sanitizers, and if you are providing a sitting area, then make sure to keep a safe social distance. Try to go for the takeaways and home delivers instead of indoor dining. Check if your staff is wearing a clean uniform, mask on, wearing gloves, and maintaining social distance.
These things will not only keep your customers safe but also keep your staff and yourself safe from this dangerous virus. So it is completely on you whether you make your place safe for others and yourself or not. In this hard time, we all have to work together and help each other to stay COVID negative.
