To ensure that our guests and staff can keep their distance easily, we have developed special long serving planks on which food for two people can be placed. The servers only have to slide the plank into the cabin and don't have to enter the space.
The planks also minimise the walking the staff have to do to serve the greenhouses. They are placed quite far from each other, especially compared to a normal restaurant setting. Because the planks can carry the dinner for two people at once, it saves a lot of walking back and forth.
Later we also further adjusted the planks so they can carry the drinks as well. This way our service is even more efficient and safe, because the glasses don't have to be touched more than needed.
In addition, we have to account for the weather when serving the food. The staff need to walk 20 to 30 meters outside to serve some of the greenhouses. If it rains, the food gets wet, and if it storms it could blow away. That is why we now use square shaped cloches to protect the food. Cloches didn't exist in this shape, so we created some ourselves using a rectangular planter and a door handle.
To protect our employees during bad weather, we have rain ponchos by the sustainable clothing brand ByBrown.
