The restaurant, fast food and restaurant industry

Blockages, supply chain constraints, unrest and power cuts have had devastating consequences for the South African restaurant, fast food and catering industry. Forced closings during the hard lockdown and restrictions since, including reduced trading hours, alcohol bans and customer number limits have resulted in ongoing challenges.

While fast food franchises have been relatively resilient, independent restaurants, coffee shops and gourmet restaurants have been significantly affected, and the restaurant industry has come to a halt.

Claims and losses

As income leveled off, many restaurants across the country have closed, including some well-known restaurants. Some establishments have filed business interruption claims with insurers due to losses linked to the pandemic. Several insurers have dismissed the claims, arguing that the losses were not caused by local occurrences of a notifiable disease within 40 km of business premises, but by the lockdown, the response from the government and the general public. to the pandemic. The insureds brought an action and the Supreme Court of Appeal ruled in favor of the insureds.

Restaurant and consumer trends

Technology and innovation continue to drive the industry. These include increasingly convenient online ordering options, more delivery options, and dark kitchens, which prepare food orders online at centralized production facilities. Consumer lifestyles, purchasing behaviors and food consumption patterns have changed and people are spending more time at home, ordering online, dining at restaurants closer to home and reducing visits to centers commercial.

Difficult business conditions have forced restaurants to cut costs, rationalize menus, and use innovative marketing strategies and brand loyalty programs.
