Doorstep delivery for Restaurant Weeks
Meals part of Restaurant Weeks special deals can be home-delivered for the first time, it was announced today.
The Bermuda Tourism Authority said that several restaurants involved in the annual promotion had struck a deal with delivery firm Sargasso Sea and Five Star Deliveries to bring multi-course meals to buyers.
Glenn Jones, the interim chief executive officer of the BTA, said: “While this is a smart pivot that meets the challenge of the day, we also see this as a meaningful shift for the long haul.”
Mr Jones admitted: “Food delivery can’t replace the delight of dining at a restaurant but it can keep the revenue flowing when eating out isn’t possible.
“It’s clear to us that contactless customer experiences are a permanent consumer expectation.
“These digital solutions are helping our destination meet this traveller desire – even long after Restaurant Weeks is over.”
More than 35 restaurants have created lunches and dinners with a focus on island-sourced food at special rates.
The event started last week and will run until February 11.
