Ongoing Support Amidst COVID-19
Our number one priority is the health and well-being of you, your employees and your customers. Likewise, we are committed to providing the highest level of customer, product and service support to help your operation adapt, endure and succeed.
The impact of COVID-19 on the foodservice and food retail industry is being felt everywhere. We're all learning to deal with this "new normal" as it relates to improving sanitization practices and reducing the risk of viral spread. Restaurants are finding creative ways to keep their doors open, while various retail, grab-n-go and delivery concepts have seen an increase in sales due to more in-home dining.
Through it all, we've witnessed strength and resilience among many owners and operators who have found ways to adapt, innovate and establish new concepts that are advancing our industry by providing more safe, flexible options for employees and customers.
Foodservice and food retail operations alike are experimenting with new contactless ordering and payment technologies while expanding options for curb-side pick-up and delivery. Retailers are adapting to increased demand for in-store and online sales for those preparing meals at home. We've seen new concepts emerge or advance such as food and beverage subscriptions, ghost kitchens, mobile kitchens and automated kitchens to name a few.
While foodservice and food retail professionals are working hard to accommodate new consumer behaviors and increased health and safety measures, Hobart is working hard to provide the equipment, resources and support necessary to help operations adapt, endure and succeed.
