Guide: How to succeed in off-premise dining

November 25, 2020

Changing COVID-19 regulations impact on restaurants

The impact of the coronavirus pandemic has lasted longer than many of us would have thought at the beginning of 2020. Heading into the holiday season, coronavirus cases are rising at the fastest rate ever. Throughout the week of November 16th, over 150,000 new cases were reported each day. Each state and county has its own set of unique rules and regulations, but many areas have reinstated dining restrictions: in many places, outdoor dining continues to be permitted with strict regulations around capacity, but in areas like Los Angeles County, outdoor dining is no longer permitted whatsoever.

COVID-19’s impact on the restaurant industry

There’s no denying the heartbreaking impact COVID-19 has had on restaurants. According to Statista, “the year-over-year decline of seated diners in restaurants worldwide was a staggering 36.61 percent on November 7, 2020.” While 2020 was predicted to be a great year for restaurants with pre-pandemic projections at $899 billion in sales, in reality, by the end of 2020, restaurant owners are predicted to have lost $240 billion40% of operators aren't sure they'll make it six more months. In uncertain times like these, finding ways to innovate and succeed in off-premise is critical to your business.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
