Food for thought
To respond to emerging challenges facing the HoReCa sector such as the impact of the pandemic, dining establishments should consider exploring new industry trends such as pivoting to enable online ordering for collection or delivery. Launched in 2017, Deliveroo Editions connects restaurants, chefs, and kitchens with customers in residential areas that are typically underserved by inspiring and exciting takeaway options2. Kitch, a Portuguese start-up, has secured €1 million in investment to build ‘delivery-only’ kitchens that allow local users to order online3.
Cafés and restaurants that are unable to open due to restrictions or are operating at limited capacity can take inspiration from these concepts and build new revenue streams from local diners craving great takeaway options. Printing in-house can support establishments in adapting to such a business model quickly and seamlessly by enabling the printing of professional quality branded packaging, menus, flyers and leaflets promoting this new service.
