Pre-booking meals in restaurants and cafes to reduce customers further

KUWAIT CITY, Oct 18: Head of the Kuwaiti Association of Restaurants, Cafes and Catering Fahad Al-Arbash said the recent decision by the cabinet to pre-book meals in restaurants and cafes halls will lead to a decline in customer demand, and increase the material losses of their owners significantly, reports Al-Anba daily.

In a statement to the daily, Al-Arbash indicated “more than 30 percent of restaurants and nearly 70 percent of cafes have been taken to court for failure to pay financial liabilities due to the decline in their financial capabilities as a result of the difficult economic conditions caused by tmmeasures aimed at containing and preventing the spread of Coronavirus.

He explained the decision to ban “shisha” has paralyzed a large number of cafes and restaurants, which generate 90 percent of their income from it, indicating the cafes have suffered successive losses since the outbreak of “Corona” and the turnout of customers is very low due to the ban imposed on selling “shisha” as a precautionary measure by concerned health authorities in Kuwait.

Al-Arbash added the association has addressed many government agencies to develop appropriate solutions to avoid the huge losses incurred by owners of restaurants and cafes, but it turned out that the decision is in the hands of the Ministry of Health that seeks to protect the lives of the public in the first place through precautionary measures to confront the Coronavirus.
