Restaurants and other establishments serving food for consumption on the premises can now sign up to the ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ government initiative aimed at protecting jobs in the hospitality industry and encouraging people to safely return to dining out.
The registration service is live this morning and can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/register-your-establishment-for-the-eat-out-to-help-out-scheme
You can use the Eat Out to Help Out Scheme:
- all day, every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 3 to 31 August 2020
- to offer a 50% discount, up to a maximum of £10 per person, to diners for food or non-alcoholic drinks to eat or drink in
- to claim the money back from the government
There is no limit to the number of times customers can use the offer during the period of the scheme. Your customers cannot get a discount for someone who is not eating or drinking. Alcohol and service charges are excluded from the offer.
If this applies to you, please let firstname.lastname@example.org know when you have registered for the scheme so that Blackburn BID can promote your involvement and encourage customers to visit you during August.
