Sisters-in-law start Open for Food website to provide online directory of restaurants and cafés offering takeaways during lockdown
A Bishop’s Stortford entrepreneur has launched an online directory to support the catering and food industry during the coronavirus crisis.
The Open for Food website lists the restaurants and cafés offering takeaway options, food box services and the food banks operating to help people in lockdown.
It was the idea of Chloe Luis, a yoga teacher who has run drinks van business Nelson + Pops with her husband James since 2014.
She set up Open for Food with sister-in-law Sophie Luis. The pair have marketing backgrounds and wanted to use their skills to support businesses in this critical time.
“We know many of these small businesses would not have the resources in place to create a marketing campaign to promote their adapted services, so this is where we wanted to help,” said Chloe.
“There have been so many incredible, heartwarming stories of communities coming together to support each other and our NHS heroes. We wanted to offer a place to highlight these stories.”
Go to www.openforfood.com to find out more and to list your business on the site.
