Earlier this month, Sysco unveiled its “Snapback Toolkit” to help foodservice operators navigate reopening. This week, the foodservice distributor is expanding this resource by launching its Restaurant Readiness Tool, a first-of-its-kind simulation that intuitively provides a comprehensive view of best practices, key considerations, and essential supplies for restaurant operators.
“Sysco’s Restaurant Readiness Tool was designed to simplify the re-opening planning process for operators as they navigate a constantly evolving dining environment,” said Brian Todd, Senior Vice President of Merchandising and Marketing. “To be at the heart of food and service means that we feel an urgency to provide these tools and resources for the benefit of all operators. We are committed to supporting restaurant businesses everywhere and ensuring that operators have the information they need to inspire consumer confidence in dining out.”
According to a press release, the Restaurant Readiness Tool enables operators to tour a virtual restaurant where they experience an immersive, 360-degree view of the establishment, which users can then navigate through by clicking various icons for each area and foodservice role. Each click will open up more information via videos, lists of recommended products, and links to helpful services on the best practices for ensuring the health and safety of both guests and employees.
The Restaurant Ready Tool also features seamless access to Sysco’s state-of-the-art shopping platform, Sysco SHOP. In addition, restaurant operators can find extra resources on Sysco’s Foodie website, including access to webinars about re-opening planning, as well as information about establishing takeout/delivery services, pop-up grocery markets, and other platforms.
