From mobile bars to innovative screen solutions, products to help in a Covid world
Profit from Your Pub in a Covid Secure World.
Are you struggling with distancing staff behind the bar?
So, your pub has finally reopened, but if there wasn't already enough to worry about, the difficulties of balancing the new normal of social distancing and expanded hygiene practise and the need to maximise your efficiency and profitability rears its head.
Bars can create an issue with social distancing of not just customers but to the staff working behind them as well.
Having a separate bar either; in an outside space or in a
small area within the pub could be an option. This could be done by going the "whole
hog" and building a bespoke bar or by simply putting a table in a corner, or
under a gazebo. The expense and interruption of constructing the bar could be a
barrier, whilst a table could give the wrong impression of your professionalism,
and give more headaches with where to store glasses, drinks, ice and everything
else required for the service.
The award-winning Stowaway Portable Bars from Gamble Foodservice could be the solution you are looking for. Heavy gauge stainless steel work surface and storage base gives you storage and makes the cleaning extremely easy. Smooth vinyl-metal laminate in a choice of colours to the front and sides offer an aesthetically pleasing look. With an erected footprint of 1584mm x 667mm x 1200mm high, they are easily operated by a single member of staff, ensuring social distancing is adhered to.
Available in either Cocktail Bar including an ice bucket and speed rail, or the Bottle Bar with a large ice well to store bottled beers, ciders, and soft drinks. The addition of a plumbing free hand sanitising sink makes these units easy to roll into place and start to work from immediately.

soap dispenser, paper towel dispenser and a bin, and this units can be sited in
virtually any location, again using casters for ease of portability.
Shielding your staff as well as separating your tables is also high on the agenda.
