As life returns to a somewhat normal pace, and we venture into the hopeful future post Covid-19, some new habits will follow us for years. That's okay, following guidelines and being extra careful with our hygienic practices is important when it comes to re-opening your foodservice operation. Additionally, it helps your consumers see that you care and gives them a little hope seeing their favorite place serving those delicious meals again. So, how do you adjust to the new regulations and maintain customer and team safety as the world adjusts? We've got you covered when it comes to reopening, and the best tools to use.

SANITIZATION TOOLS

For all of your handwashing and hand sanitizing needs, these stations make keeping your hands clean a breeze.

Breathe in that fresh air and maintain social distancing suggestions for your guests. These solutions are perfect for your outdoor dining.

Talk about comfortable privacy. Forbes has created the ultimate outdoor masterlist of items you may need for your outdoor serving.

Similar to the curbside comeback by Forbes, Wabash Valley has taken social distancing to the next level. With a variety of tables, chairs, and shading options you can provide a little extra room between customers. All chairs and tables are constructed with recycled materials and environmentally friendly, and they're built to help you put social distancing into action keeping the 6 ft. guidelines in mind. 

COVERING ALL YOUR BASES

Even with washing your hands more and providing more distance between seating, cleaning between guests and providing compliance signs only helps ensure everyone is doing their part to stay healthy and reduce the spread of Covid-19. 

TABLETOP SIGNAGE

With compliance signs acting as reminders, serving solutions provides you with your basics. These signs will help maintain things like keeping 6 ft. of distance between customers, and requiring or asking that everyone wear a mask. Rather than having to verbally ask these things of everyone repeatedly, the signs do all the talking for you and ensure you can focus on serving instead. 

NU-FOAM TABLETS
