Best Practices for Reopening Restaurant with Fast Table Turnaround Time
Our radio guest this week is Sesto of Da Sesto Italiano Ristorante e Vino. Sesto finally reopens his restaurant with limited capacity and days during the pandemic. He shared his COVID-19 business journey, discussing how he pivoted a fine dining, sit-down Italian restaurant to offer takeout and delivery, without using any third-party delivery service. He used his own employees to make deliveries, keeping them employed during the shutdown. He adapted quickly by taking advantage of technology like Takeout Button® online ordering as early as mid March, when the pandemic had just begun.
Sesto partners with Meals on Wheels and also has a Pay It Forward page on his website that allows anyone to support his mission to feed front line workers. You can Pay if forward at https://order.dasesto.com/buy/DaSesto/payitforward.
