Organizing Your Commercial Food Service Business for Emergencies

Whether you own a catering company or a high-volume restaurant, the recent COVID-19 pandemic has certainly changed the way many commercial food services work, forcing them to close their doors or reduce their offerings. However, there are still many ways you can prepare for such a scenario and stay in business, you simply need to do a little thinking outside the box.

Here are four ways to prepare for an emergency if you own a commercial food service company.

1. Delivery Bags for Curbside Pickup/Delivery

One of the best ways to prepare for a scenario is to stock up on to-go bags and other plastic flatware items. That way you can offer your dishes to patrons even if you’re unable to service them personally. Many restaurants and commercial kitchens are now offering curbside pickup and expanded delivery services in their area to keep the revenue coming.

2. Signs to Let Your Customers Know You’re Open

With fewer people on the street due to sheltering in place and social distancing, it’s important to make sure that if a potential customer does pass your location, there’s no doubt in their mind whether you’re open or not. If your business is continuing to make to-go and delivery orders or taking walk-in customers, having a clear sign in a good location that says as much is essential.

3. Safe Food Transport by Using Carriers

For catering companies and other commercial food services, ensuring that all of your offerings get from point A to point B safely is key, so consider investing in quality food transport carriers. Food transport carriers are strong, sturdy, and insulated to ensure that any food or beverages you’re carrying arrive at their destination tasting great and are undamaged.

4. Utilize Vacuum Packaging to Reduce Waste

Vacuum packaging food is one of the best ways to reduce food waste. This is because a quality vacuum packaging machine helps seal in freshness and enables you to freeze and store food for much longer periods of time. This means no wasted food because it has freezer burn or it’s quickly reached its expiration date.
