Key considerations and products for reopening restaurants

Readying for reopening

Despite many restaurants having remained open on a limited basis for order pick-up throughout the quarantine, there are many risks and factors to consider when opening your doors to welcome customers back into your establishment.

There are a few key checkpoints each restaurant and bar should consider before opening their doors, along with state and local regulations, while adjusting to meet the unique needs and circumstances of your business’ community.

1. Are you ready to protect employees at higher risk for severe illness?

2. Are recommended health and safety communications in place throughout your establishment?

A. Hand washing recommendations

B. Face mask requirements

C. Sanitized surface indicators

D. Social distancing reminders

E. Customer seat spacing

3. Are all employees trained on health and safety protocols, despite patron requests?

4. Is ongoing employee health monitoring in place?

A. Signs and symptoms

B. Stay home sick policy

C. Plan for sick employees

D. Monitor employee absences

E. Have flexible leave policies

Despite reopening restaurant seating areas, be aware that many patons may prefer to continue to levage drive-throughs, delivery and curb-side pickup, or sit outdoors where possible.

Be cognizant of spacing throughout the restaurant - altered layouts may be necessary to ensure enough distance between tables and stools, as well as single direction traffic through aisles. Limit party sizes to avoid excessive crowding.

Be sure to keep both customer and employee congestion in mind in common areas such as restrooms, break rooms and waiting areas, as well as staggered shifts for employees, if possible.


Key Product Solutions for Restaurants:


Entrances and Exits

Welcome hungry guests with highly visual signs that establish protocol

By conveying clear directions with well-placed signs, you reduce the need for extra staff and get people in the right places faster, and safer.


Curbside Pick-up

Coordinate and direct with visible indicators

Organize your outdoor areas with easy-to-read signs, marking tape and control posts. Even at a distance, important messages should be visible and posted in logical spots for those waiting for drive-through or curbside pickup.


Seating and Waiting Areas

Help identify safe seats and tables with colorful markers

Show staff and guests what’s available, disinfected and ready for them, along with where to stand while waiting. To avoid unintentional proximity and preserve social distancing, create one-way traffic flows among tables.


Checkout

Make financial transactions safer with distance controls

Directional signs, markers and decals are placed on floors and can quickly manage distancing in high-volume areas like checkout lanes, ATM machines and anywhere lines are formed.


Restrooms

Proper distance and sanitation in this popular spot

Public restrooms can get pretty crowded, which is why social distancing and proper hygiene signs are so critical. Post in doorways, on fixtures, around sinks and where lines form to let everyone know the best and safest ways to use the facilities.
