People, I believe, will not be as willing to go out to eat like they were before the pandemic, unless the overall restaurant experience is really worth it.
But it reminds me of when I first started culinary school. It was and the recession was at full speed. It was so difficult to think about job searching and how a career in culinary would look. Jobs all around us started to close. Pay was reduced to unlivable wages and so many folks were displaced. And quite frankly, pastry will be put into a corner yet again like it was during the recession.
In we should have set up failsafes to protect staff and give an honorable and living wage to our workers, the true backbone of our industry. Today, I hope that we learn from our mistakes and make sure to provide and equitably take care of the folks that really make our dreams possible. Rebuilding will be hard, but not impossible. It's evident that the need to have safety nets in place for restaurants has never been more important , and right now that means banding together.
Restaurant owners need to protect their staff and join forces to create a union or organized group that has their best interest, and that of their workers, in mind. A group with a unified voice would help mitigate the effects of recent difficult decisions, for future shutdowns.
And I think we will be actively pursuing resources and legislation to support these efforts. A large number of people—immigrants, largely undocumented—who show up and do all of the heavy lifting making these places a reality for chefs and diners alike. We live in a country whose culture has turned into 'out of sight, out of mind,' whilst forgetting that we live in a country that was forged and built by immigrants whom without, most of what we have now would not exist.
From buildings and railroads, to farmlands and foods. My hopes are that people see this vulnerable and marginalized faction of the industry, whom without it wouldn't exist, and push for better legislation, immigration policy, equal pay, and humane working conditions through the entire landscape starting now and building towards a better future for the hospitality industry. Restaurant staffs have been decimated by this pandemic, and for the restaurants that remained open doing carry out and delivery, they've worked with a small fraction of the staff they normally run with.
The longer this continues, the more experience that these restaurants will have with becoming more efficient with prep, execution, to-go packaging, etc. There will likely be a new normal where we need to get creative to find opportunities outside of our four walls for guests to experience our restaurants and bars.
There is so much untapped potential virtually —I think there is, and must be, space for both virtual experiences as well as the in-person hospitality that has become one of our hallmarks. We've already pivoted towards takeout and curbside pickup, and are working on virtual cooking demonstrations and classes, but how can we push these ideas further? Can we create a virtual restaurant concept that can be a partner business to our traditional concepts?
