Restaurants Are Cracking Down on “No Shows”
One of the industries hit the hardest by the pandemic and the lock downs was the hospitality industry; in particular restaurants.
Now it seems pubs and restaurants are facing a new issue, no shows.
Years ago no one even thought of booking a table at a restaurant or pub, you just showed up and if there was a waiting list, you waited.
These days bookings are not just recommended, but required. And it would seem many people are making bookings and then not showing up. This causes a huge expense to the pub or restaurant. They make sure they have enough staff, food to prepare, etc.
Then if the patron fails to show, the restaurant could be at a loss.
Restaurants and pubs are coming up with ways to hopefully change all that, which you can read about here.
