With Plans to Reopen Taking Shape, The Path Forward For Restaurants Becomes Clearer

Posted by TrendSource on 4/30/20 9:50 AM

I’ve always known we were going to get out of this phase of the pandemic, but this week was the first time I actually could see it playing out. Indeed, what has been a distant promise is slowly becoming a tangible future as concrete plans are being laid across the nation for a gradual relaxing of social distancing standards and a reopening of shuttered businesses. While logistics and timetables are going to vary from state-to-state, county-to-county, and even city-to-city, examining California’s recently announced, four-stage reopening plan offers our first real glimpse at what our new normal will look like and how we will get there.

COVID-19 Retail Market Research: Can E-Commerce Even Begin to Fill in the Sales Gaps?

If it weren’t for the news, every day would have started feeling like the one before--quarantine is least terrible of our current options, this should go without saying, but that doesn’t mean it is fun or fulfilling. The walls get boring, the couch starts to make your back stiff, and every time you stop to think about it, you realize you are doing the exact same thing in the exact same place at the exact same time as the day before.
