Welsh hospitality will be permitted to reopen indoor spaces from 3 August, first minister Mark Drakeford has announced.
Managed pub, bar and restaurant groups that opened last Saturday saw like for like trading 44.5% down compared to the same weekend last year, according to CGA’s Coffer Peach Business Tracker.
One in four consumers will make spending less money on eating out a priority in the next six months, HIM/MCA Insight’s Recovery Report has found.
KFC, Pizza Hut, Nando’s and Costa are among the latest operators to reopen some sites for eat-in this week. Whilst in pubs and bars, Brewhouse & Kitchen, Inception Group and The New World Trading Company all announced reopening plans.
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.
The vast majority of operators experienced no issues with either local authorities or the police before the 4 July reopening weekend, according to the latest weekly Hospitality Leaders Poll by MCA/HIM. Asked whether they had difficulties with either, 93% of operators said they had not. However, around two in three said they had been contacted by both the local authorities and the police before reopening, with 65% saying they had been contacted by the local authority and 69% saying they had been contacted by the police.
