Are You Ready to Reopen Your Doors?

With North Carolina’s Phase 2 slowly approaching, is your restaurant or bar ready to open its doors to its customers? When asked what people have missed since the lock down, sharing a meal in a restaurant with friends is top of the list. Despite that, people will venture out cautiously. One way to ease their concerns is to share with them the precautionary measures you have taken to keep them safe and make them feel comfortable. To assist in this effort, we have compiled a list of checklists, guidelines and best practices.

What Customers Want from Restaurants as They Reopen

You may also want to check into the “Count on Me NC” initiative the North Carolina Restaurant and Lodging Association (NCRLA), along with the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NC DHHS), the North Carolina Tourism Bureau (VisitNC), and the North Carolina State University, have just launched. “Count on Me NC” is a program specifically created to provide customers reassurance that participating restaurants have implemented and are practicing the highest sanitation and safety measures. Training and certification are free. For more information, please visit:
