With the end of the Victorian Stage 4 Lockdown, as well as the removal of the ring of steel, reuniting Metropolitan Melbourne with our Regional friends & family, our Hospitality Industry is now once able to begin its uphill battle to return to normal. Despite finally being able to reopen, many of the local businesses in your area will be having a hard time adjusting to re-opening after lockdown, and it’s possible our communities will not look the same as they used to in the coming months, if our hospitality industry isn’t able to find its feet.
At Burgies, we were fortunate to be able to function with our online delivery, but we have still felt the burn of lockdown and it’s only thanks to you that we were able to remain afloat. We will be forever grateful for the support that we were shown from our communities.
The ‘Save Hospo’ movement has taken off online, with incredible support shown on Zomato, Instagram, and even through a petition on change.org, urging the Australian State and Federal Governments to oversee the huge burden our beloved industry is currently facing.
If you want to preserve the identity of your community, you can do your part by sharing reviews of your favorite local restaurants and cafes, going out to eat with friends & family and spreading your support through social media and word-of-mouth. With the full support of local communities, as well as the government, we are optimistic that we will make it through the tough times together.
