Executive Directors Message

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]When this pandemic eventually passes, some of the changes restaurant owners have implemented may become long-term. Aside from increased safety measures, what will remain permanent after the pandemic?

 

The industry’s unique innovations in food procurement could be one of the permanent shifts.

 

The epidemic has led us to strengthen our partnerships with local food sources (including produce, fisheries, beef, chicken and pork). Maintaining these strong bonds is a sign we will make it out of this setback even stronger.

 

Businesses may keep many menu options that were offered during the pandemic as permanent options moving forward.

 

Frozen meals are on the rise as a trend post-COVID-19. Restaurants that are providing frozen meals have seen an increase in their sales, due to the ease of allowing customers with families to dine-out with their favorite meal.

 

The Hawaii Restaurant Association’s website offers numerous resources for those looking to maintain some of these changes post-pandemic or who are interested in implementing changes while we remain in the midst of the quarantine.

 

A few examples of the HRA Member’s discounts and special offers include:

  • Making your website more user friendly for online orders
  • Creating an app that allows your customers to easily access your information
  • Thermometer scans to ensure you have a healthy/happy workforce
  • Touchless menus/QR code menus
  • Sanitization
  • ServSafe Food Safety Training and Certification

 

To take advantage of these and many other amazing discounts and special offers, please visit https://hawaiirestaurant.org/special-offers/ .

 

If you are interested in having your business’s special offers listed.

Please contact: info@hawaiirestaurant.org

 

The one thing you can rely on is that the Hawaii Restaurant Association will continue to be your resource throughout all the changes we experience now and long after the pandemic has concluded.

 

May you & your loved ones continue to be safe and healthy![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row]
