Restaurant safety is not just about compliance anymore. Consumer behavior is driving operators to implement flexible policies that give patrons peace of mind. Sanitation is still a top concern for many who are choosing to return to their local dining spots. Buyer’s Edge reports that orders for disinfectant and sanitizer products by restaurants rose 36% during the pandemic and are poised to continue at that level.
While health restrictions are lifted at varying degrees, restaurants are expected to continue including some degree of COVID-related safety equipment for the foreseeable future. Many of these products are sold in bundles, much like family-style meals are sold at restaurants for groups of different sizes. Purchasing kits like these eases the cost of buying the products by type and allows you to select based on the size of an operation.
