A few more days into the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and we have seen more businesses close their doors in an attempt to keep their staff and customers safe from the virus. Despite not being specifically told to close by the government many take away shops have now decided its time to close for the time being.
The government has for now made clear that home delivery services are going to provide a crucial role in getting food out to the nation over the coming weeks, with many at home unable to go out for 12 weeks or self isolating, having hot, cooked food delivered to them may very well be an attractive / only option. So fish & chips still has an important role to play.
For the many that have had to close their doors for the time being, hopefully they can take comfort in the thought that as we come out the back of this, as we will, take away shops are probably going to be one of the first to have restrictions lifted and people are going to be more keen than ever to have their much loved fish & chips, so there is every reason to believe trade will come back well.
As ever, we are here if you want to talk regarding any aspect of the trade.
