Colorado finalized their guidelines and minimum requirements for restaurants yesterday to resume dine-in options for either indoor or outdoor service!
As restaurants anxiously wait for tomorrow, the date and the green-light to reopen from the State, they must juggle the mountain of planning and preparation tasks that must take place to reopen in a safe and compliant way for customers and employees.
To help restaurants organize the required health and sanitation activities, CloudBreak Environmental has developed a planning tool designed to help guide businesses wanting to resume dine-in operations with an easy-to-use guide that pulls state requirements, Federal guidelines, and a host of useful resources into one place, helping to speed up the process of getting the operation back online and in compliance in a safe way. ReOepning Planning Tool
This is an important time for businesses to earn customer trust that may have been lost or reduced during this uncertain period. More than ever, customers will scrutinize your sanitation/disinfection processes, health procedures for both themselves and your employees, and will be looking at the cleanliness of your business. If they find cues that allow them to think otherwise, you risk the chance of losing a long-term customer. Confidence in your plan will show through to your customers as well as through your employees. If you need some guidance putting all the pieces together so you can focus on your other business needs and would like a desk review of your reopening plan, or an in-person assessment of your reopening plan before you open to customers, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
