Restaurants won’t be rescued by the success of “Eat Out to Help Out.”

September 14, 2020 / Business News

The success of the “Eat Out to Help Out” government scheme is unfortunately unlikely to be a complete rescue package for every company in the hospitality sector, given the serious challenges they are facing.

Our Senior Partner, John Bell, has written an article for CLH Digital – and in it he goes into detail why the scheme won’t be a recipe for success for all restaurants due to the sheer scale of the financial crisis caused by the on-going pandemic. This has been coupled with a number of other contributory factors, including:

  • A steady decline in consumer spending.
  • An over-saturation of restaurants.
  • The mounting pressure to compete with rival chains and online delivery firms.
