Luckily Danny was able to retain his kitchen team and developed very quickly an online offering for customers to click/call and collect or deliver. This quick and efficient business pivot brought Parker’s takeaway offering provided loyal customers with the opportunity to enjoy Parker’s food at home along with gaining new customers at the same time.
On the day of our visit, the phone and the online booking platform was on the go nonstop, as we were leaving at 1.00 pm, Danny had 20 orders on the board. A positive measurement of the business offering from which orders were from a catchment area up to 50km from the restaurant.
Looking to the future, Danny plans to continue the takeaway service offering from a dedicated premise in the centre of Roscrea which will be branded ‘Parker’s in Town’.
Compostable packaging and cutlery are used for their takeaway service.
