    Brandwatch: Burger King @ Just Eat


    Unlike the rest of us, Just Eat has had a pretty good year. From that fateful day in March, as the nation was informed that they “must stay home” in a then unprecedented (three-week) lockdown, eating in became the new eating out. Just Eat saw a 33% jump in orders as a result of the first lockdown – with breakfast and lunch orders rising by 50% and 80% respectively – and the upward trend has since continued. However, whilst the crisis may have escalated the company’s rapid growth, it was by no means the catalyst.

    Dominic Walsh: On not-so-Super Saturday and the pain that’s yet to come


    If anyone thought that July 4 would bring down the curtain on the 15-week coronavirus purdah, they were soon disabused of the notion. Super Saturday was – like the weather – something of a damp squib. While some of the big pub companies opened as many as 80% to 85% of their estates on day one, research by CGA suggests that only 45% of hostelries opened their doors on Independence Day.

    Burger King set to close up to 10% of its estate


    Burger King UK CEO Alasdair Murdoch has said the chain could shut 10% of its restaurants with the loss of up to 1,600 jobs as a result of the coronavirus. The chain has reopened 370 of its 530 strong estate, but Murdoch told the BBC the scale of the crisis was insurmountable, saying “I don’t think you can ever get over the top of this problem.” He said the discount scheme unveiled by Rishi Sunak was an “innovative approach” and that Burger King would take part, but that Burger King could close 5% to 10% of its stores because they were paying rent but “taking absolutely no money”.

    Peter Martin: How to make friends, and influence the right people


    The prime minister is safely back in Downing Street, and there are more signs of life in the out-of-home market as the likes of Burger King, Pret a Manger and KFC take tentative steps to reopen sites. But for much of the hospitality and leisure sector the outlook remains uncertain and confusing. Last week’s pronouncement by chief medical officer Chris Whitty that “disruptive” social distancing is likely to be a feature of day-to-day life even until the end of the year, did nothing to calm the nerves of an already under pressure industry.

    Editor’s Opinion: Hang tight and plan your return


    The coronavirus continues to wreak havoc. It’s claimed hundreds of thousands of lives around the world and numbers continue to rise. As dreadful as that is, the long term socio-economic impact is more disturbing. The virus has created a level of disruption to health, society, and the economy that’s never happened before, outside of wartime. And while there is plenty of speculation on how life in general may get back to normal post-lockdown, with vaguely optimistic or pessimistic dates floating around, there is no clarity on how or when this might end.
