One of the best industry examples of pivoting and adapting to the new landscape in these COVID wild times ➡️ Restaurants!
We saw everything from...
✅ Takeaway dining options
✅ Make-at-home meal kits with ingredients + recipes
✅ Curated food hamper experiences
✅ Grocery box deliveries
✅ Online cooking classes
✅ Pantry staple recipes and tutorials
🧀 For a cheese shop, it could have been as simple as packaging up a "cheese board" hamper for pick up or delivery.
🍷 For a wine store, creating a wine tasting experience by offering a selection of wines + recording some quick videos for people to watch as they taste.
❤️️ For the date night hotspot, creating a "date night in a box" hamper complete with a simple, romantic meal and the perfect wine pairing.
🌱 For the organic café, putting together grocery boxes that cut down on decision making and make it easy for people to get what they need in a chaotic and stressful time.
Consumers want to support their local businesses right now, so it's important to think about how you can stay relevant and serve them as best you can.
