Masks, gloves, plexiglass barriers, limited capacity and even expensive air filtration systems become the new normal for dine-in service…

Socially distant dining: Here’s how reopened restaurants are updating operations….

At three Smokey Bones restaurants in Georgia, both servers and kitchen line workers now wear face masks. Tables are spaced at least six feet part, and only 10 guests per 500-square-feet of space are permitted at one time in each restaurant. The limited food options are printed on disposable menus for one-time use, and utensils are disposable and come to the table pre-packaged.

At an Applebee’s in Tennessee, restaurant workers wear masks and gloves. Guests were directed in the parking lot to avoid congregating, and the chain planned to allow customers to order and pay on their own mobile devices.

At Chili’s in Texas, workers are checked for fever and quizzed about possible exposure to coronavirus before shifts.

This, at least for the near future, is expected to be the new operational normal as states phase in their back-to-business plans for full-service restaurant dining.

Many restaurant operators across the industry argued that the states that lifted restrictions at the end of April — including Alaska, Georgia and Tennessee — did so too soon and were potentially putting their workers and guests in harm’s way….

What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • Allison Sullivan was amazing! 

    She found my resume online and reached out to me. I had been in the market looking for the right next step in my career for several months and had been receiving calls daily from different recruiters so I didn’t expect anything magical to occur overnight. Allison called me, we chatted quickly about my work experience and she advised me she thought I’d be perfect for a client she was working with….and literally the next day I got a call for an interview with the client. The day after the interview, I was immediately offered a position consulting on insurance claim management. Allison was checking in with me each step of the way and made the transition from unemployed to working at a career I’m excited about in no time at all! I cannot thank her and Patrice & Associates enough for all their help!

  • I am very thankful for Liz Costa.

    She was kind, informative, and very encouraging during the process of applying, interviewing, and finally accepting the position once it was offered to me. I have worked with several recruiters before and Liz was the most friendly and professional at the same time. She made me feel comfortable and also made me feel confident during the interview process. After only a few weeks, I now consider Liz a friend and would certainly recommend her to anyone who is in the looking in the labor market. Thank you Liz, I appreciate you as a person and a professional.

  • Jonathan Litt set me up for success!

    I am truly excited to start this new journey at this restaurant. I can honestly say I don't think I would have been able to pull this off without Jonathan Litt's help. He was more than professional but at the same time he was authentic and explained everything I needed to do to make things work. He definitely set me up for success. My confidence level wasn't what it used to be, but with his help he made me believe in myself. He encouraged me and believed in me as well. I will never forget his efforts. My appreciation for his work and dedication will always be remembered. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for allowing me to be a part of this process. I am forever grateful.

    Thank you again,

    I love it at my new career and picture my future here. Rick was awesome in helping me choose where I need to be and how I had to get there. It took a lot of interviews and me turning jobs down because it wasn’t a fit for me. At my new career I’m in the right place!
