At the start of the year, Flycup is highlighting “Place aux Restos”, an initiative to help restaurateurs launched by the brand Metro France , UMIH , and CGAD , in order to develop take-away sales and click and collect.

The health crisis has had a strong impact on restaurateurs for many months. The reopening of restaurants, initially planned for January, is constantly postponed and the announcement, Thursday January 7, by Prime Minister Jean Castex did little to reassure, suggesting a still complicated future.

“The prospect of reopening in January is not realistic and will already be postponed at least until mid-February” – Jean Castex on January 7, 2021

This situation has had a strong impact on the catering sector, which has been forced to innovate and find new solutions. More than 20% of restaurateurs have also turned to take-away sales.

To support them, Metro France, the UMIH (Union of Hotel Trades and Industries), the GNI (National Group of Independent Hotels and Restaurants) as well as the CGAD (General Confederation of Retail Food) have sent an open letter to the numerous presidents of associations of towns and villages in France (President of the AMF, President of Villes de Franc, etc.) as well as to the Senate.

In this letter, a proposed initiative based on the trend of take-out and click and collect is presented there:  Time for restaurants . This action allows restaurateurs to take advantage of a place on the market in their municipality when the configuration and space allow it. Through this operation the objective is to provide greater visibility as well as improve the accessibility of the catering offer.

This particularly touches us and as all the actors of “Place aux restos” did, Flycup also wishes to contribute and give a helping hand to the restaurateurs participating in this operation, by offering to offer a package for any order placed. An opportunity for small restaurateurs to take a further step towards nomadic and responsible consumption by choosing practical and ecological packaging!

If you wish to go further, do not hesitate to read the excellent article from the National Group of Hotel and Restaurant Independents, as well as the open letter addressed to the Senate.
