3 BENEFITS of a Foodservice Business Continuity Plan for YOU (BCP)
- Creating a BCP will make it easier for your organisation to cope in the unfolding crisis. It will minimise the disruption for you and your customers. It also demonstrates to customers and investors that your business is prepared for anything, gaining their confidence and giving you a competitive edge.
- A BCP can also reduce or even avoid the risk of losing revenue if you are hit with disruption (i.e. reduced on-site population as a result of the CORONAVIRUS health and safety measures). Returning to business as usual and as quickly as possible minimises disruption.
- Organisations that aren’t prepared could ultimately: damage their reputation and brand image, put people off associating with them and lead to a loss of customers and revenue.
