Call and Collect/ Deliveroo/Eco Eats
Cromars is a fish & chip shop in the heart of St.Andrews.
We pride ourselves in high quality fresh produce in supporting local businesses for our supplies, and using fresh fish caught in the North sea.
We have a 26 cover restaurant and takeaway which is extremely busy in the season. Fish & chips and the beach go hand in hand.
In the current situation we closed our restaurant firstly and continued to keep our takeaway open with a maximum of two customers at a time.
Four weeks ago I made the decision for all our staff and customers safety to close the takeaway and strictly use a call and collect service.
I furloughed all staff except two who are brother and sister, they work three full days per week and on the other four full days my daughter and I work this keeps only one household in the shop at any one time.
We are fortunate here as I had signed up to use Deliveroo and Eco Eats delivery just before lockdown so that has been a great service for our local community.
Alternatively customers call, leave a mobile number, pay over the phone we then make their food, call for them to collect and place on a table outside our back door.
This saves any contact whatsoever.
Last night an elderly gentleman called for a fish supper, he explained he would not be able to come and collect it so we sent it in a taxi for him. He was delighted!
