As local businesses start to adapt to the current situation with Covid, chicken chain Chargrill Charlie’s has joined in by implemented a new “contactless” ordering system.
Ensuring they can still serve their local communities despite the need for social distancing, Chargrill Charlie’s has introduced a “Eat Contactless with Charlie’s” addition to their smartphone app. This is designed to reduce person-to-person contact by allowing customers to pre-order and pay for their takeaway meals in advance.
This in addition to introducing additional health and hygiene measures across all 14 of its stores in Sydney and Melbourne, much like many other places like Newtown’s Belly Bao and Canberra’s Agostinis are doing.
“Over the last 30 years, we’ve taken pride in ensuring the well-being of our staff, customers and communities,” said Ryan Sher, co-owner of Chargrill Charlie’s. “We are introducing extra measures to stay on top of COVID-19 in all of our stores, continuing to reassess our processes to ensure a safe environment for all.”
The feature was developed in a matter of days, where customers will be notified of a pick up time, with each store having a designated pick-up area, once order has been placed.
For those who still want to show up and pay for their meal, the stores are only accepting cashless payments and are only doing takeaway. Although some in-store seating remains available. All meals will be served in recyclable containers. Sealed cutlery is also available on request
Chargrill Charlie’s operates 13 stores across Sydney (Rose Bay, Woollahra, Mosman, Lane Cove, Wahroonga, Willoughby, St Ives, Neutral Bay, Frenchs Forest, Drummoyne, Mona Vale, Dee Why and Annandale) and one store in Melbourne (Camberwell). More information can be found HERE.
The AU Review would like to encourage people to practice strict social distancing to help #flattenthecurve. Any news of venue openings is just so you know where to go when we’re eventually in the clear and this difficult time is behind us. Stay safe, and please do your part.
