MAY 2020 - RESTAURANTS TURN INTO DRIVE IN THEATERS
With "AMC Theaters" unfortunately in dire financial shape, there is a old movie format that is coming back strong.
Restaurants are taking Outside Walls and using there parking lots as viewing areas to see "Full Length Features".
The Servers are wearing gloves masks and serving their guests who are seated in their cars.
The Guests order from menus they find on their phones and then text their order and car space # so that the Restaurant can prepare their orders.
You do what you have to, when your normal way of doing business is no longer possible.
Bars should look into this very same format, and in addition to movies, show infamous and legendary NFL, COLLEGE FOOTBALL GAMES.
If and when the NFL actually plays real games, you then feature them on your wall, or the huge screens you set up.
From buying the screen material and erecting a tremendous screen, you don't give excuses that stops you from this Concept, you adapt, adjust and apply so that you do business.
Currently Food/Beverage Establishments that are preparing to use their outside areas respecting "Social Distancing", to accommodate featuring Outdoor Movie Experiences.
Keep in mind, "Netflix", for the last quarter, had 16 million new subscribers.
Yes people have "Cabin Fever", but, they also are already engaged in viewing flicks, so capitalize on it and don't make any excuses.
A Major Concern for Restaurants & Bars!
A Report was just issued, supposedly, that stated a restaurant in China, had a guest who was a carrier of Covid19, but did not know it. His breathing air, went into an a/c vent and ended up giving nine other dining guests the virus. I know, just when you thought you knew enough to open your food/beverage business in a safe manner, this challenge comes along?
Social Distancing, Masks, reducing your capacity.
Even if your Governor gives you "THE ALL CLEAR" to open,that does not mean customers are going to come in. Don't open just because you have been given The Right to.
Open when you have protected your Staff and Customers.
Create a new Menu, that is far quicker to prepare and priced right.
For bars, bring in the Craft Beers, they cannot rely on their own Brewery BrewPubs, not any longer.
If they are smart, they will focus on "Distribution".
Getting their product out to both Bars and to Customers.
Just like Coors has been taking a major Twitter Campaign, pumping and pushing delivery of their beers to your home almost instantly.
This is what's going to be the Savior of Craft Beers, that don't cry in their drafts, but rather put your energy into what is going to generate cash flow, that's "Distribution". Go Viral with everything you do.
Post on Youtube, on Instagram, on Face Book, on your own web site, and if you don't even have a web site, go to www.godaddy.com register your domain name and create your own web site. Do it NOW.
Show all your CRAFT COCKTAILS, that include Craft Beer, Liquor, Fruit, and other assorted items.
Again as I always say "BE CREATIVE". Use your imagination. Capture the attention of everyone.
Include music, interaction, respect Social Distancing.
NEED EXPERTISE IN ALL ASPECTS OF YOUR CHALLENGES, THEN EMAIL,
"COVID19", MEANS DELIVERING LIQUOR & LOTS MORE! OPENING UP YOUR RESTAURANT IN THIS NEW "NORMALCY" MUST INCLUDE BOTH PICK UP WITH A HUGE SIGN AND AREA FOR CUSTOMERS TO PARK & HAVE THEIR ORDERS BROUGHT OUT TO THEM WITH YOUR STAFF WEARING GLOVES AND MASKS, SAME GOES FOR DELIVERY OF FOOD, LIQUOR, AND SPECIALTY DESSERTS, AS WELL AS THE #1 SELLING FROZEN FOOD ITEM, PIZZAS, BUT WITH YOUR OWN PIZZA CREATIONS.
FOCUS ON BRINGING TO POTENTIAL DELIVERY CUSTOMERS, A PIZZA THAT NEVER EXISTED BEFORE. THAT'S RIGHT, PIZZA IS #1 AND YOUR RESTAURANT, REGARDLESS OF THE CUISINE YOU FEATURE, MUST HAVE YOUR CHEF, OR YOUR COOK, TO TAKE YOUR MOST POPULAR DISHES, THEN FORMULATE A DELISH PIZZA.
THIS IS NO TIME TO BE AFRAID, STOP THE WORRYING, AND APPLY ALL OF THAT STRESS TO A POSITIVE ATTITUDE TO BRING YOUR BAR, YOUR SPORTS BAR, YOUR BAR & GRILLE, YOUR LOUNGE, YOUR RESTAURANT BACK TO LIFE IN THE NEW "NORMALCY", FORGET ABOUT THE WAY IT WAS, THAT WAS THEN, THIS IS NOW.
YOU HAVE TO REACH WITHIN YOURSELF TO FIND PATHS, PLANS, TO ADAPT TO HOW TO STAY IN BUSINESS.
AUTO INSURANCE COMPANIES ARE REDUCING THE POLICYHOLDERS POLICIES, CAR DEALERS ARE OFFERING NO DOWN PAYMENT, NO MONTHLY PAYMENTS FOR UP TO FOUR MONTHS, EVERY BUSINESS WANTS TO MAKE MONEY.
SURE, WHEN YOU GOVERNOR ISSUES ORDERS FOR YOUR KIND OF BUSINESS TO OPEN, DO EVERYTHING FROM SOCIAL DISTANCING, TO GLOVES, MASKS, SPACING, AND EVEN MORE. THE VIRUS IS NOT GOING AWAY. PEOPLE ARE RESTLESS AND ARE GOING OUT DESPITE ORDERS.
SO YOU NEED TO PROVIDE THEM THAT RESPITE.
THE SAFEST WAY FOR PEOPLE TO DRINK AND DINE IS OUTSIDE, EVEN WITH SPACING, NO PARTIES OF SIX OR MORE. SERVERS MUST BE TOTALLY SAFE AND SERVE WITH THE UTMOST OF CONCERN FOR THEIR GUESTS.
YOU WANT WORD OF MOUTH TO GO AROUND THAT YOUR RESTAURANT, YOUR BAR IS SAFE AND A GOOD PLACE TO ENJOY.
REMEMBER, THIS VIRUS, MAY NOT BE AT IT'S MINIMUM IMPACT, AND UNDER SERIOUS CONTROL, UNTIL SEPTEMBER, WHEN MEDICATIONS THAT REALLY WORK, ARE AVAILABLE, AND HOPEFULLY A VACCINE HAS BEEN CREATED.
KEEP THIS IN MIND.
NOW, HONOR DOCTORS, NURSES, FIRST RESPONDERS, EMTS, ALL THOSE ON THE FRONT LINES, INCLUDING POLICE AND FIRE PERSONNEL.
SHOW YOUR COMMUNITY YOU CARE !
PROVE TO THOSE SACRIFICING , THAT YOU APPRECIATE THEIR LIFE RISKING WORK.
