Kyle Hankinson, Owner of Honey & Fig, explains how they have followed government guidance to keep customers safe. Find out how you can work safely.
Hi, I’m Kyle. I’m the owner of Honey & Fig in Retford, and over the last few weeks we’ve been working hard to put measures in place, as per the government guidelines, to safely open on the 4th of July.
From now on, when customers come in, we’re asking them to wait by the door to be seated by a member of staff. We also have multiple hand sanitising stations around the store, including in the toilets.
We’ve also reduced our capacity to keep our tables a safe distance apart. From now on, it will be full table service, so we’ll be taking payments at the tables. There’ll be no condiments, cutlery, anything left on the tables. It will be handed out to them when they do order food.
We have also got social distancing markers on the floor throughout the store, just to minimise movement and we’ll be taking contact details from each table, to help assist with the NHS Track and Trace.
The cleaning of all surfaces and equipment will be more frequent and thorough, and all staff will be required to wear a facemask whilst on duty.
We hope that the measures that we have put in place make it feel safe for customers to return, as all the staff are looking forward to welcoming you back.
