Many restaurant professionals concerned for industry’s future
The Coronavirus Restaurant Survey has revealed that concerns for the future of the restaurant industry are evident.
The survey was compiled by Fine Dining Lovers, the gastronomic platform by S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna, with the collaboration of Gronda.eu who distributed the survey across their own network of chefs to offer insight and data from industry sector workers.
Its findings, following analysis from over 10,000 responses from both consumers and industry professionals, show that over half of restaurant professionals anticipate the financial situation will worsen over the next six months.
As many as 86% of industry workers fear restaurants will not reopen after the crisis and 23% think an entire overhaul of the industry is required with only 27% believing the government has provided adequate support for the industry.
Of those who are currently employed, a significant 72% are still concerned that they will lose their jobs because of the pandemic.
Interestingly, 69% of consumers stated they would rely on safety measures taken by restaurants, more than relying on measures taken by government.
Ryan King of Fine Dining Lovers, said, “This solid data will allow restaurant owners to understand the impact of lockdowns and habits of consumers allowing much more educated decisions when looking at adapting business models.”
