Sysco Launches New Interactive Virtual ‘Restaurant Readiness Tool’ for Operators
HOUSTON, TX - After releasing its “Snapback Toolkit” to help foodservice operators navigate the process of reopening, Sysco is expanding this resource with a first-of-its-kind innovation. The foodservice distributor's Restaurant Readiness Tool is a simulation that intuitively provides a comprehensive view of best practices, key considerations, and essential supplies for restaurant operators.
“Sysco’s Restaurant Readiness Tool was designed to simplify the re-opening planning process for operators as they navigate a constantly evolving dining environment,” said Brian Todd, Senior Vice President of Merchandising and Marketing. “To be at the heart of food and service means that we feel an urgency to provide these tools and resources for the benefit of all operators."
The Restaurant Readiness Tool enables operators to tour a virtual restaurant where they experience an immersive, 360-degree view of the establishment, which users can then navigate by clicking various icons for each area and foodservice role, according to a press release. Each click will open up more information via videos, lists of recommended products, and links to helpful services on the best practices for ensuring the health and safety of both guests and employees.
"We are committed to supporting restaurant businesses everywhere and ensuring that operators have the information they need to inspire consumer confidence in dining out,” added Todd.
The Restaurant Readiness Tool also features seamless access to Sysco’s state-of-the-art shopping platform, Sysco SHOP. In addition, restaurant operators can find extra resources on Sysco’s Foodie website, including access to webinars about re-opening planning, as well as information about establishing takeout/delivery services, pop-up grocery markets, and other platforms.
