Signing up to the 'Eat Out to Help Out' Scheme
The Chancellor's new 'Eat Out to Help Out' scheme is a great opportunity for cafes and restaurants around the Waterfront to boost their summer trade this August.
Chancellor Rishi Sunak unveiled the "eat out to help out" discount as part of a series of measures to restart the economy amid the coronavirus pandemic. It gives diners the opportunity to get a 50% discount off their restaurant bill if they eat out from Monday to Wednesday during August.
Why you should use the Eat Out to Help Out Scheme
It will act as an incentive customers to eat in your restaurant or other eating establishment by giving them a discount which you can then claim back from the government. The scheme is UK wide and customers will be able to see who is taking part on GOV.UK. The scheme will drum up custom on quieter days of the week and means you can build your business back up.
Eligible establishments are those in which food is sold for immediate on-premises consumption. This could include:
Public houses that serve food
Businesses have to register to take part. (here)
Once you have registered, please let us know and we will provide extra social media marketing for you across the Waterfront BID channels and in partnership with Visit Plymouth to help spread the word.
