With the Government advising people to avoid social contact as much as possible Merseyside’s biggest Chinese restaurant group is to offer home deliveries. Tony McDonough reports
Merseyside’s biggest Chinese restaurant group has launched a home delivery service as people are told to stay at home amid the worsening coronavirus crisis.
Government advice for people to stay away from “pubs, clubs and restaurants” to slow the spread of the virus is a bombshell for the hospitality sector. But Chinese restaurant group Chy is starting home deliveries from its three Merseyside outlets.
The family-owned business opened the doors to its first restaurant in 2010 in Liverpool’s bohemian Lark Lane and is now operates restaurants in Renshaw Street in Liverpool city centre and South Road in Waterloo.
On Monday, the Government also advised on social distancing measures and Chy hopes its new service will allow the business to keep serving its local communities while adhering to all hygiene and sanitation measures necessary.
Chy Liverpool manager, Kayleigh Wilson, said: “We’ve made the decision after yesterday’s announcement that all three Chy restaurants will remain open. We have a robust cleaning and hygiene routine in place and have decided to stay open for business to support our local communities.
“The safety of our staff and guests has always been and remains paramount and so we have also gone a step further to launch a new home delivery service that will be available from all sites.
“With Mother’s Day coming up this weekend, we want to ensure that customers can enjoy a restaurant quality Chinese meal delivered directly to their door so that they can dine in the comfort of their own home. To order our customers simply need to give us a call. Our delivery service strives to be the very best in Liverpool.”
