Takeout Delivery

 Fenton — The normally bustling lobby of CRUST is much quieter than usual with only a few customers in line. Granted, since Monday, only 12 customers were allowed at one time, and dining in is prohibited.

 Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s Monday announcement that all restaurants and bars had to temporarily close for “dine-in” customers sent business owners and managers scrambling for a plan.

 For many, this announcement meant pivoting to a take-out style business in one day or shutting down. Businesses report that takeout orders had only accounted for about 10 percent of their overall revenue before this.

 Several local restaurants are revising their day-to-day operations to offer take-out and delivery orders until this pandemic is over. Owners are doing whatever they can to keep their employees busy.
