Hosted by Executive Chef David White, the first program which launched on the 28th July focuses on how the club industry is weathering the COVID-19 pandemic, and looks at the prospects going forward.

Each episode of the The Bottom Line is available to watch on-demand after its initial screening.

In addition to this, Simplot Foodservice is giving three establishments the opportunity to win $2,500 worth of prizes with each episode.

Simply fill out the entry form after watching the episode and tell David what you have learned and how it can help in running your business.

In episode 1, David sought the views from two club CEOs and two industry consultants for some revealing insights.

As pubs struggle to implement new health and safety regulations, more young people are heading to clubs, but many older patrons are staying away.

One way of overcoming their fear of infection is to work doubly hard on health and safety, and the experts agree that any club not doing that is operating on borrowed time.

To stay in business there’s also a widespread feeling that prices will have to rise, and that cheap meal specials are a thing of the past.

One consultant tells David the club industry was already facing a huge shake-up before the pandemic, and that a transformation which might have taken 10 years to evolve, will now be truncated in one to two.

Another says ‘a control alt delete’ for the industry was long overdue.

But it’s not all doom and gloom. Some treated the lockdown as a time to re-think and re-brand, like a new canvas, and are confident about the run up to Christmas and into 2021 and beyond.

So join David for The Bottom Line, let him know what you learned, and register for the upcoming programs on the healthcare and pub industries.
