The hospitality business of the city which mainly includes the restaurants, the hotels, and the street vendors are slowly trying to get back on its feet. The owners of these places are trying to forget the last seven months as a bad dream and are trying to move on.
Even though the owners of these places have been saying that they have been taking full precautions regarding the safety of their customers but still they are trying very hard to run their businesses.
The owner of Calcutta Rolls (a famous restaurant in Shankar Nagar) said that they had survived their business with a Home Delivery service and Take home facility. They have been sanitizing their premises every four hours and have been making sure that their staffs take the COVID test every two weeks.
Yet citizens are still petrified to go out for a meal or order some food from outside fearing they might get infected. The fear is inevitable and it will not go unless the vaccine of the disease is out.
Since, all of this like eating out, ordering a meal are leisure expenses and with the COVID taking a toll not only on the health of people but also on the economic condition of people all of this have taken a backseat and the hospitality sector was the worst affected sector in the COVID times. But what people failed to realise is that the hospitality sector employs a large number of people and for the economy to get back on its feet every sector has to perform including the hospitality sector. If restaurants, dhabas, street food vendors, hotels start performing well it will be a huge shot in the arm to revive the economy of the country.
People associated with these places always says we don’t deliver food or we don’t accommodate people we deliver happiness and we serve happiness as having great food and living in a nice clean place can bring greatest joy in anyone’s life.
