Ways To Adapt To Challenges Within The Hospitality Industry
In order to compete within the hospitality industry, it’s important to adapt to keep up with emerging consumer trends. Here are a few things to consider for your business.
Rethink your space
One of the biggest challenges facing the industry currently (and maybe for some time to come) is that of compensating for reduced cover capacity. But as capacities were cut by one third, walls and other physical boundaries were found not to be quite as rigid as originally thought. Government flexibility on the use of parking areas and terraces has offered the opportunity to get creative with outdoor space. The British climate may not offer the guarantee of double-your-capacity alfresco dining of our southern European neighbours, but it's amazing what some well-thought out gazebos, pergolas, fire pits, glowing BBQ's and cosy portable furnishings can deliver. It’s no surprise then to find that 56% of chefs surveyed in our study “have already considered outdoor dining as a new way forward”.
