Different Dining Hours and a Reduced Menu
According to Dehoga, 67% of catering businesses have now taken at least some of their employees off short-time work. Mario Aliberti has found a new job – in a newly opened restaurant. ‘The owners of the restaurant in Karlsruhe have decided not to open again – it probably wouldn't have been profitable. So we all quit.’
A newly opened restaurant? In Covid-19 times? ‘The cities are not dead and the restaurants are full,’ says Aliberti. ‘I am convinced that some people use Covid-19 simply as an excuse. If you have 50 seats inside and now only 30, you can still make two dining times and get the place full. You have to be flexible.'
